Amy discussed her participation in an organization called Helping Hall, made up of various 501(3)(c) charities. Presentations are presented and members vote on who gave the best presentation. Amy won $3k in donations.
Discussed two different time shares as future fund raising events. Discussed having a raffle drawing for gift cards at each general meeting. The purpose is to try and draw more participation at general meetings. Other Cresswind clubs do this and seem to have success.
Brain Olson, a current HOA board member, has a leather jack given to him for his work on the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers. He is donating it to us to be used for future fundraiser.
