5:06pm opening and we start with Gathering and what was done with it. Things were fine.Charlene bought the 2 tea coolers for Gathering and that on Black Friday we will get at least one we can roll. Based on our budget we need to know how much we will spend to make the purchase.Lia said pizza to be purchased for the Christmas party. So the decision to get the pizza would most likely be either Big John’s or Carmelo’s. The things needed would be chips and pretzels, there will be the need for drinks, and cookies and Lia will get the cupcakes. The pricing for what need will be decided based on what is needed for toppings and it would be sheet pizzas. (EST. count per sheet is 32 pieces)
Activities will need to be chosen which can be the least messy. We made $182.00 dollars on the basket from Gathering which was great with the help of Ivy,Ms Eddy, Kim and Carmela.
Ivy has 3 paintings of which people can donate and then be able to put their names in for the paintings. And someone can present them to those in the senior luncheon in order to let everyone have the chance to try.The paintings will be presented tonight in order for people to be able to win them.
Linda can take tickets during work hours at the store from Thursday and Friday from 1-6pm and they will be presented every Tuesday and be put online.
New Business will be one next month’s meeting: We will do the White Elephant and the poinsettias with a our dessert and drinks. Linda may not be there so we will need someone to audition things off for the W.E.So we will need to tell people tonight to bring a wrapped gift for the event.Last year we did names for people to win the poinsettias and we will need X-mas cards.
We need to keep everyone posted as the time goes by so that every base was covered. We can start at 6:30pm the night of meeting in order to be able to socialize.
10 minutes of Christmas Carols for everyone to sing with Trinity Norwood.
Uncle Sonny spoke about the next Gathering being about the 7 generations and that we would behind us and ahead of us. Ty asked would we like to merge it with Pow wow cause it is something that was thought of for us for Cultural Retention.
Charlene wants the shirts to be alike but different when it comes to both Pow wow and cultural retention.
A decision with Aunt Eddy, is on genealogy and the idea of getting forms to have people fill them out and go over their family lines.It may be cool to invite people like Bruce, Paul Johnson. Aunt Eddy brought up and the sign that is need of painting and Linda said we got a volunteer who will paint the sign which is over the awning. The need for paint and to possibly have light to it for people to see it. What can be used is something that is solar powered so that we dont have to use electricity.The subject will be brought to council. The guy who is willing to do the painting is, Norman Cuff.
