The meeting was called to order at 7:38 PM by Vice Chairman Monica Ullrich.
Members in attendance were Westa Hannafin, Jean Lascar and Julia Smith. The
flag salute was followed by the Sunshine Law announcement.
Halloween Parade was discussed. Some items to consider for next year are:
1. Number the participants
2. Line up groups in the parking lot, not on the grass
3. Have groups Pre-K (ages 0-4); Kindergarten (age 5); 1st & 2nd; and 3rd, 4thand 5th grades.
4. Have groups of no more than 25 parade at one time. (K may require
three groups of 25, to be numbered 1-75.)
5. Reduce the walking area
6. Judges and benches should be near lights, even if we put up kleigs
7. Pick up ballots for tabulation as soon as the age group is finished
8. Distribute Jack-o-lanterns to winners with age-appropriate gifts which are
different than hand-outs.
9. Pumpkin-carving kit is a great consolation prize
10. Purchase giant blow-up pumpkins and ghosts
