Thanks to everyone who worked to sell tickets, solicit prizes, and make our event more well known in the community.
Ticket sales are going well, both at the Liquor outlets, and at individual sales. Dayle Hughson has been working almost with stop to distribute tickets and to make sure that there are not a large number of "outstanding" tickets. Please come to this weeks meeting with your unsold tickets.... We are trying to sell as many tickets as possible, but still have them available at as many places as we can. If you know that there is a good chance that you may not sell all the tickets that have been allotted to you, please bring them to this week's meeting so that they can be redistributed.
But this still means that we need everyone to go out and sell as many tickets as we can to our friends (?), and relatives, and also to revisit all those merchants that did not take out a radio ad.
Our auction gift list is growing, but we still need as many items as we can get, so please do not give up on "pestering" for more items. This is the final push for this, our major fundraiser, and we need everyone to give all the effort that they can to make this a very successful "festival".
Dayle has ordered the banner that will be used at the Westman Auditorium, and it will be a great advertisement for the club when it arrives. The Stuart MacLean concert will be on the 4th of May - the day after our Beer Tasting Festival, and that will be the next time we are needed to provide our coat check service. Also, Dayle has located and purchased more coat check tickets, so that we are well stocked with those items (we are using up some tickets that the Auditorium had found..
Just a reminder that we will be doing the Mother's Day flower delivery for the Bloom Box Florists, on May 9, 10 and possibly the 8th. This is a pleasant project and certainly makes one feel good when delivering the flowers. Please save some time to do a "shift" and help the Club earn some more money!
Here is a quick summary of the upcoming events and activities for our club....
May 3 - Third Annual Beer Tasting Festival - all members will be needed to help run this fundraiser - and try and sell as many tickets as you can prior to the event. We need help at the door (ticket sales, raffle tickets, etc.) and probably help to fill in for guest pourers.
May 4 - Coat check at the Westman Auditorium for the Stuart McLean performance.
May 9 & 10 - Flower Delivery at the Bloom Box
May 9 to 11 - District Conference in Winnipeg
