STANDING COMMITTEE REPORTS

OLD BUSINESS

Story Board for Staff Council - Regina McCarty
Regina McCarty contacted Graham Gohmann for approval of the layout of the story board. The layout was approved and a final proof copy of the story board was circulated to the SC members in attendance for comment. The consensus of the SC was favorable. The Story Board will now be duplicated and distributed.

Silent Auction – Diane Fuchs/Charlotte Dubois
Baskets and filler items are needed for the basket assembly. Items may be brought to Charlotte’s office or to the next SC meeting on October 14th. The time and date of the Silent Auction are October 14th from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Flyers will be distributed next week for posting.

Birthday Bags – Diane Fuchs
Trudy Walter has notified Staff Council that she would like to be relieved of the task of preparing and delivering birthday bags. She has completed delivering bags to everyone whose birthday was in the month of July. Trudy will still send greeting cards for Staff Council. Diane Fuchs suggested using small clear bags with candy such as chocolate kisses instead of the larger bags to simplify the process. Larger treat bags could still be distributed for the holidays and/or in the spring to all staff. Mary Ann Braden volunteered to be in charge of sending the bags with the help of Lesley Deal and Angie Moon. Ammie Black will be contacted for a list of birth dates of staff.
