Barb talked about the Master Gardeners and said that Mary Ann, the leader of the group, wanted further clarification of the plan they are working on for CFJ Park. This Saturday, Feb 14 at noon, Julie and Barb will meet with the group of Master Gardeners to discuss the plan and try to clarify the expectations. We discussed the use of our funds for horticulture, benches, grills, etc. No specific decisions were made regarding the Park Funds at this time.

Cruze-Inz: Corinna is giving previous sponsors until Feb 20 to respond regarding 2015 events. Then she will start contacting other businesses for donations. We have Ricky and the Blue Shadows for May and the Toy Box Trophies for June. We are waiting to see how much money we receive before making final decisions on other bands. We discussed a discount card that we will distribute at the Cruze-Inz. We will charge businesses $10 for 5 months-there will be a different colored card each month with a
specific discount printed on the card. We will print 80-100 cards each month, depending on the level of interest.

Carousel Day: Julie reported that the trackless Train is returning. Most of the sponsors are coming back-about half have responded. Julie is working on music, entertainment and food vendors. She was contacted by a t-shirt vendor. E-mail Julie with ideas for messages we would want on the t-shirts.
