Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday, August 7th at 6 p.m. at LaMesa Hope to see you there!

We still need:
- Fundraising Coordinator
- Entertainment Coordinator
We have the bulk of our amazing committee seated, but we still need some motivated parents to step up to fill a key position immediately this year. Critical to our success over the next two years is a Fundraising Coordinator. We are planning to hold one fundraiser each semester junior year (that will not conflict with the current running senior OpGrad class), as well as selling our own class sportswear. In order to do that successfully, we need a Fundraising Coordinator to set up the events! And YES! We'd be happy to take TWO Co-Coordinators if you'd like to split the work!!! We also need someone to fill the Public Relations/Media Chair position. This person would handle all of our advertising, press releases, fliers and thank you notes. If you are interested in either of these positions, or know of someone who might be, please contact either Keri Gauger, firstname.lastname@example.org or Gina Redwine, JGRedwine@sbcglobal.net ASAP!

We will have a table at the Holiday Market again this year and we are looking for great ideas! If you have a sure-fire money-maker, let us know!
Our ongoing project is a Lion T-shirt Quilt Raffle. We are currently taking donations of new and vintage Lansing t-shirts with the old and the new Lion logo. Collection site is Gina Redwine's house, 131 Meadow Court, in Lansing.
