New Business

Glenna mentioned the possibility of having a board displayed to acknowledge accomplishments of WGH Alumni.

Brett thanked everyone for their help with Tinsel and Treats.  Preliminary numbers reflect over $5000 made.  Brett spent $380 on trees put on clearance and thinks we have enough trees for the next two years.

Our next family dinner night is at Whataburger by Showbiz Movie Theater on February 20 from 5pm to 8pm.  This is for Dine-in only.  Patrons do not have to mention WGH or bring a flier. 


Decadent Dessert Night will be March 22.  Cost will be $5/person.  Parents are asked to donate desserts and students will serve.  Asking for some sugar-free, low-fat and gluten-free desserts.  Costco donated $500 worth of items to be used as raffle items.


I any WGH family or friends would still like to sign up for Costco membership it is still the same price, but does not include the $30 in free merchandise.

Spirit store will be getting new shirts soon.  We are about halfway through the design process.

No other new business was mentioned.

Motion was made to close the meeting.  Motion was seconded and carried and meeting was closed at 7:50p.
