VP Report – Arlene Cohen
-Volunteer form need to be turned in – very concerned about the lack of volunteers this year.
- Funds earned from fundraising cannot be refunded if a student does not go on the trip, the funds would then convert to general operating budget funds.

Nomination of Sherri Borden as Secretary – motion made by Jill Francis and seconded by Carol Cairns – approved unopposed.
Membership & Sponsorship: Need help organizing this. Asking for 5 hours of volunteer service for membership, but should we also include the ability to pay $5 for membership. Boosters against adding the $5.00 back for this year as we went with the volunteer hours. Motion made by Carol Cairns to amend the By-Laws to include the 5 hours volunteer hours instead of the $5 fee., seconded by Kathi Davis – passed unopposed.
Calendar Changes: The board meeting scheduled for November needs to be moved to November 7th due to elections and the school being used. The December meeting will be on the 6th for Madrigal Feaste only and boosters meeting will be on the 13th. Jan meeting will be on Monday the 9th.
Madrigal Feaste – Still do not have a coordinator for the event. It is December 10th at the Hylton Memorial Chapel. Tickets $30 per person. Pre-sale tickets have started with troubs and sapphires. Go on sale officially at Fall Concert. Mr. Tutwiler will seek a 10th or 11th grade parent(s) to shadow folks this year so they can take over next year
Trip packets went home with Concert Choir students, first payment due October 14th
Hylton hosting District Choir Auditions on November 8th from 12 -8 pm
Boosters will need to provide snack drinks and dinner for the judges and support group of about 30 people total. Kathi Davis and Emily Brown will take care of this. Concessions can be done if we can obtain parent volunteers, but it will be difficult because it is during work hours.
Seeking students to volunteer as a runners during auditions, it would also be nice to have a few parents available
Congratulations to the 4 students who are going to Senior Honors Choir – Michael Cohen, Kenny Anderson, Justin McCaskey and Lindsay Tacaraya.
Boosters will provide an $800 scholarship for Senior Honors. Each student is required to pay $279 and because of the scholarship, each student will know pay only $79
Mr. Tutwiler thanked the parents who helped during the All-County Auditions
Need portable CD players for District Auditions on 11/8
