Fundraiser discussion: We discussed the raffle ticket fundraiser that was approved at the previous meeting.  We are thinking of having two different raffles, one for an I-Pad and one for a BBQ grill. Each raffle ticket would be $5.  We are thinking of starting to sell the tickets in May or June and continue until Carousel Day.  The drawing for the winners would be on Carousel Day.


Membership: Barb designed a form to help generate interest and membership in JC Partners. We discussed the membership vs. partnership terminology. The group gave suggestions for changes to the form.  There will be a By-Laws meeting, chaired by Barb on 4/26 at 7PM at Village Hall.
