Wire trash bin (large, like on the streets of NY)
Wooden bookcase (about 36”-48” tall or wide)

Wingtip or two-toned men's shoes
Women’s shoes and hats/character shoes
Furs, purses, gloves, jewelry, etc.
Additional request: anything pertinent to 1950 for inspiration for the set would be great
PAC will need tools for the scene shop. Table saw is the most important
Also, any kids in tech who want to work with power tools need to have a permission slip signed.
Don't have a permission slip? Please email Kevin or perhaps have your student check their inbox
Michelle: please make sure we have your child’s locker number for locker decoration night
Julie: The show will be November 16, 17, 18 (at 7:00), and 19 (at 2:00)
We're looking for a lot of volunteers to team up with current Boosters, this way we'll have people to take over next year
co-treasurer (to work with Patti): ?
co-box office (to work with Andrea): Mary McDonald volunteered! Thank you, Mary!
Ad sales are a big deal—please let us know if you can help at any level
October 20th is the deadline to submit ads
Wendy offered to help. Thank you, Wendy!
Brenda: need people to come for 3 hours before every show to iron
Volunteer Spot will have slots for all jobs, including ironing
Sewing is also a very useful skill, and we need outfits for all of the dancers, plus Adelaide
Question: How much do sponsorships and ads cost?
Showstopper is $1,000
Curtain Raiser $400
Encore Presenter $250
Mr. Farnham: volunteered to strike the set and his company will purchase an ad $250 (Encore). Thank you, Tim!!
Question: how much money do the Boosters need to earn?
School pays for nothing
Ticket sales go back to the school
Ad sales and concessions (and extra fundraising) go directly to Boosters
Kathleen: we have been able to get away without aggressive fundraising for the last few years, but with the PAC this will probably change in the near future.
We have several background campaigns like Clynk and Mixed Bag
Northway Scholarship costs $1,000 per year, but there isn’t enough to give this out again
Brenda: what if the Clynk bag funds (~$500 per year) were directly applied to the Northway Scholarship?
Kids have to apply for the scholarship and it helps someone going to college for the performing arts
The general response here was positive
Kathleen: will set up the new online sign-up sheet this week. Remember—you don’t have to pick one thing! Pick lots! :)
Brenda: request for concessions that are not noisy. No crinkly wrappers!
Kevin Burnsteel asked: Thanksgiving lunch again this year? Liz: Yes.
John: this doesn’t happen without parents being involved. Please come to meetings.
Emily: I'll email Laurie to see if she has the posters from last year
*Small group met at the front to further discuss ad sales.
PAC groundbreaking: 4-5:00pm on October 2nd
Next Booster Meeting: Tuesday October 10th at 6:30 in room 151 (we hope)
