Music In The Park – July 17th
• Port-a-Potty: Port-a Potty was never delivered.
• RH Community Library: Library was happy with the profit they made and would like to participate again next year.
• Publicity: Thank You’s should be sent to those who participated. Follow-up article with winners needs to be sent to the newspaper.
• Suggestions for Improving and Reducing Costs for Event Next Year:
- We need to do a better job of promoting the event. We should be more clear that the music is free. It is also good to vary the bands to get a different following.
- No Port-a-Potty since Scout House Restrooms are available.
- One large tent for wineries and have 3 or 4 pop up tents around the event for people to use.
- Discussed that some attendees bring glasses from previous years and don’t pay. Leonard Oakes gave us wrist bands to use to show that people had purchased their ticket this year. Discussed using wrist bands or stickers next year.
- Also any RHBPA member who has wine glasses from previous years can give to Julie to help reduce the amount we may need to purchase next year.
- If anyone has signs from last year and/or this year, please bring to next meeting (or give to Julie) so she can get an accurate count.
Fall Evening Mixer
- We will plan to have this for the October meeting. Hor d’oeuvres, beer and wine will be served. Greg will contact the speaker to determine availability so date can be set. He will try to plan it for a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday evening.
The meeting was adjourned at 8:49 AM. The next meeting will be Wednesday, September 14th at 8:00 AM at Darrell’s.
