Treasurer: Cathy Stoodley went over the bank accounts.  Cathy was paid money for LDL?  And paid for our Christmas party.??

Who owes dues, Gisela, Leech, Wilson’s, Grace Sheilds. Cathy went over the dues and what they cover and what you can do/can’t do.

Papke:  Good finds called Cathy Papke to get more cookbooks to sell.  Cathy told her that we would get back to her after our meeting.  We do not want to have her sell them if we are discounting our cookbooks at Venetian.  The discussion was made that we still want to sell the cookbooks their at the same price since they are being sold to tourists.  The discussion was also that we are selling them to $10 at Venetian and Good finds would be selling them at $12 and that is not fair.  Kathleen Kellher said to mention to Good Finds what we are selling them at for Venetian and if she chooses to mark them up and make money she is welcome to do so.


LDL: Francine Jacobs:  49 paid reservations, 19 say they are coming in but ant count them until they have paid.  We have 151 more tickets to go.  Sent out 45 emails from emails that she received from GLWA members.  Wrote a letter about GLWA and safety town, and mailed out today.  New rack cards printed and gave them to Visitors Bureau.  She does have new fliers that are more clear and precise.  If anyone has anywhere to place them and push the event, please do so.  Right now we are in the whole for LDL.  See if you can add information into any Newsletter/work item, community involvement that we can add to that we can get the word out more. The discussion is that we should sell LDL tickets at Venetian fest to push the event.  Workers at the shift should work towards selling tickets.  Went over the Rack cards and the different way that woman can pay/attend LDL.  Francine will put together a bullet point poster as to why we want to sell tickets and what we do.  Sharon said that she bumped into people and they did not receive any emails regarding LDL.  Been said that their have not been getting a lot of names/information to reach out to people.
