  1. Upcoming Events

    1. Future event Ideas - Kelly S

      1. RAGBRAI is coming through the Amana Colonies/Oxford on July 28th 10-6.

  1. 8500 people

  2. Items to cover how many?

    1. RAGBRAI stop is in Oxford on Main street.

    2. Can we have students singing/playing music?

      1. This might be hard to do.

    3. Since they will also be going through Amana, they will probably be handling the baked goods. We should focus on the things we can sell later.

    4. We’ll set serving 3500 people as our goal.

    5. No objections or comments about the offerings and prices.

    6. Consensus is to not do baked goods and just focus on pre-packaged food.

    7. We’ll need to have a banner to display.

    8. Could we use one of the CCA trailers?

      1. Suz might have a trailer that we can use if it isnt sold.

    2. Could do holiday crafts if around the holidays. (Lindsey)

    3. For holiday shopping, if parents would be heading to Coral Ridge Mall, TE or OH would be on the way for CCE and Amana kids. (Kelly)

  7. Summer-ish Carnival?

    1. Face painting, Dunk Tank, Inflatables, etc.

    2. The process would be the same. We need to ensure we’re not interrupting summer schedules for grounds work and other maintenance work.

    3. Summer 2023 might be too soon. Look at this for summer 2024.

    4. Would the bigger thrill be doing something at the high school? Could this draw kids from all over the district? (Lindsey)
