The March 1 Dawson Community Club meeting opened at 6:30 p.m. Those present were Bob Day, Lacy Michael, Louie Ashton and Pat Curry.
There was some discussion about the Ham & Bean dinner. Some folks thought it started too early, in the past some folks thought it was too late. The majority of
attendees started arriving around 4 p.m.
A representative from the Tri-City Library requested some cookbooks to be sold at the library. He asked if the DCC would donate one cookbook for the library collection.
It was agreed to donate a book to the library.
Cookbook sales were discussed. The cookbooks are being very well received and sales are going well. We do need to get them out to the public though.
Pat asked if the fire department would be willing to offer cookbooks for sale at their upcoming chili/soup dinner on March 31. Lacy will ask the fire chief.
Lacy will look into the annual ‘Girl’s Night Out’ to see if she can set up a table to sell cookbooks there. The fee would be a donation of one cookbook, plus $10 for
rental space. Everyone agreed to that.
The DCC will donate $100 to the annual Easter Egg Hunt, toward the purchase of prizes and candy for the kids.
Pat asked if Josh would put together a softball tournament for the Independence Day Fireworks display.
Lacy said she would talk to him about it. She also suggested asking IGA if we could set up a table there in the covered walkway to sell cookbooks.
Louie asked if we would be selling concessions for the little league and/or softball games.
We will be selling concessions again this year.
Pat said she asked Charlie about getting a band for the fireworks display. He agreed the band was very well received, and we should do that again.
Louie said a band had performed at their church. He thinks the name is ‘Kickin’ Grass.’ He will see about getting a contact name and number for Charlie.
A May fundraiser was discussed. A pancake and sausage breakfast was proposed as well as a sausage gravy and biscuit breakfast, beginning serving at 7 a.m. Bob
will look into the cost.
The next meeting will be on March 29, 2012. Please plan to attend and contribute your ideas for future fundraisers.
With no further business to discuss at this time, the meeting closed.
