200th Anniversary

Roger passed out a form to fill out with 200th anniversary picnic activities. Had 5 minutes to complete. Roger passed out a list of activities, he thought of, including a Friday movie night. Went through list and decided yes or no to each. Will finalize list in the future before discussing details. Roger wanted a final budget for picnic.

-Kiwanis could possibly do a 50/50 raffle, township cannot do.

-Roger asked if we should sell food tickets for $2.00 each so get an idea for how many people to plan for. Mangia can do all the food if we want.

-Time capsule added to the list

-Mark and Carol are working on a car show.

-Discussion on having ice cream for movie night: Familias has a soft serve machine, need to check if it is portable. Wayne suggested contacting north coast custard.

-Carol went over final cost of the banners. Will order 10 at $116.75 each, inc;luding hardware. If businesses want to purchase a banner with their name can pay for them. Additional cost of $900 for installation. Decided that was too much, township maintenance can hang instead.

Geocache is ready to go live on Judy asked about cost of Dianna making tokens for the cache. Carol will get a quote. Judy will check on number needed, guested about 50.

Next regular meeting Thursday, December 8, 2016 at town hall.
