Ken suggested moving $300.00 from checking acct into savings acct to eliminate further bank service charges on that acct. Motion was approved.

Communications: Scott Fowler
Scott has contacted AJ concerning getting help with the website subpages. Plans are to begin advertising for the alumni social scheduled for Oct 4, 2019. Scott will begin that on website and facebook page.
Topics of discussion:
-Current FHS AD Aaron Blankenship, has offered the VIP tent at Homecoming football game. Multiple ideas were discussed, including a Facebook Live drawing of names for seats in the tent.
-we need to begin the search for donation baskets for the social. Jerry Oberdorf has list of previous donators, and is willing to help get some of those again.
-video clips “”sponsored” by FHSAA for advertising on the new FHS Arena big screen- FHS sports trivia questions was one of the many good ideas.
-Getting a float back in the parade, and contacting Barry Brown concerning the truck and trailer used in the past.
The 501c3 discussion was tabled until next meeting.
At the next meeting, we will be voting on changing the by-law to read “attended FHS” vs. graduate of FHS for membership eligibility.
Next Board Meeting: Tuesday, August 6th, @ 7pm. Meeting room still to be determined.
