ANGP Co-chairs – Kathy Lofstuen did make phone contact with Chris Stevens at UMD to triple make sure we are on his calendar; We are will set up a meeting with Chris in May. Chairs were reminded to get in procedures and timelines to Teresa.
Treasurer and Registration chair – Jena Hart reported 158 registered but only 112 paid. The April 1 deadline of $50.00 vs. $60.00 registration fee is fast approaching. Jena will call those who have registered but not paid to get their payment in before the April 1 deadline. In addition, an ALL CALL will be made SOON to those seniors who have not registered. In late April, early May, Jena will post information for seniors to let them know what they still need to do to register/attend the party.
Donations chair – Chris Holappa reported $4,455.00 in monetary donations have come in—AMAZING! Many prize donations have also come in. Follow up phone calls to those who received letters and have not donated will be made in late April.
Entertainment co-chairs – Peg Van House and Lisa Harma reported all entertainment is booked. The question was asked about the rock wall fee and whether it is was in our UMD fee/budget line or comes out of entertainment’s budget. If it is already included in the UMD fee, Peg and Lisa would have $250.00 more to hire another hair cutter. Kathy will look at her records and ask Chris at UMD.
Security/ Volunteer chair – Teresa Norberg-King reported via email that there still are volunteer spots to fill. PLEASE help get the word out to junior and sophomore parents that we need volunteers.
