Scholarship Committee:

Art – new guidelines are out for scholarships. Please send in applications and questions to Art.

50th Anniversary:

Jesse – current dates in consideration: 9/24 and 10/1.

Sharon presented prices (quotes from BYOG in Dublin) for t-shirts to be sold at National Festival, or locally to publicize and commemorate the 50th anniversary.

Elishiva suggested that we survey the members as to who would buy a t-shirt.

Art – suggested that if promotion is the aim of this, we do an ad in the Festival Program advertising the anniversary, and send out postcards to members and ex-members and groups. Art would check into the ad – deadline & cost.

The idea of t-shirts was voted down.

Introduction of attendees.

Performance by Bernie Beauchamp of Beaupromo Puppetry – Reno.

Bernie is traveling across country performing on the way to the National Festival. He is a marionette performer, and had musical performances by Sophie Tucker, Nora Jones, Louis Armstrong and Louis Prima.

Meeting adjourned at 8:55 PM.
