The board members listed the prizes and going over the plans for the Pool Party on Saturday, July 19th. Myrna Coleman said that ACE QP will probably donate some kind of chair.

Tommy Taylor said that Coca Cola would donate Coke Zero and bottled water, six 12 packs of each, enough for 150 people.
Jeff Cumblidge will be the hot dog vendor. Rose Klein will bring the squirt guns to give kids as they pay $1 to swim. We will all meet at the pool at 5 p.m. for the Pool party.
Myrna Coleman asked the board’s opinion. Optometrist Dr. Bateman wants to have a drawing at the Pool Party for sunglasses. The general feeling was that if he wanted to donate sunglasses to the Pool Party we would be interested, but we do not want to set a precedent of allowing businesses to solicit at our events. We will continue to advertise businesses by giving them recognition for their donations. Jim Klein made a motion to table the discussion. Seconded by Dianna Wright. Approved.
Jim Klein made a motion that Tommy Taylor use the Wal-Mart gift card to buy six or eight bags of ice to cool the pop and water. Seconded by Bill Schlautman. Approved.
This meeting adjourned at 9:05 p.m. The board stayed to load goodie bags to be given to kids as they leave the Pool Party.
