July 9th – Show Committee Meeting

Our next show committee meeting will be before the board meeting on June 11th, 2018, at Wendy’s at 505 E Smith, Kent, WA 6:30 PM. We will meet prior to the monthly board meeting.

If you are interested in helping organize and plan the show please attend. Show committee meeting starts at 6:30 with a short board meeting after, you are welcome to attend one or both meetings. We really need a volunteer to lead the raffle and door prize area. We have several volunteer helpers but we need the overall leader.

If you are interested in helping organize and plan the show please attend. I am looking for another time and location we can separate our show meetings from the board meeting. I am looking for suggested times that would work for everyone. I have discovered that Saturday morning might not work as all the restaurants wont reserve space as this is their busiest time. Still looking for options.

If you know of a room, area, recreation room, home or ? we can use on a Saturday please let Mark know. As we get closer to the show we will probably move to meeting twice a month.
