May 2018 Booster Club Meeting Minutes

President's Report

A big thank-you to the auction and fiesta committees’ who added a lot of new people with big ideas resulting in great success: Auction 2017/2018 made $56k, while Fiesta made $37k.  

A call went out in the Canyon Chronicle for people to help with corporate sponsorship next year. No-one has responded so we are still looking for volunteers. Its purpose is to take the load off finding individual event sponsors, instead offering an annual package. This is an under utilized revenue stream for Canyon; we lag behind the other Palisades elementary schools in this area who all generate $50/60k per annum.
