    • No date is set yet, but the last one went very well. We will be speaking with the Elks and hope to have it sometime in September or October. We will need many volunteers for this event including student volunteers.
  • Flowers
    • We are also considering selling Mums in the fall and bulbs in the spring next year.
  • Spaghetti Dinner
    • We did well and we made money. The crowd seemed smaller. Next year's ideas include:
      • Presales at the before the shows.
      • Placing tickets into a few random programs at the matinee performance for a free dinner in the hopes that people will use them.
      • Have the dinner the second week of the show to give time for advertising to work.
Please send your suggestions!
