Pink slips – 2 slips presented. One was for a young woman attending prom and needing accessories, graduation pictures and other expenses and needing assistance with those expenses. She is starting IUPUI in the fall and is currently working. This was for $150.
The second pink slip was from Garrard House for a total of $1,400 - $1,000 for Holiday World Trip and possible camping trip. The other $400 was for their house fund to be used for “flowers and back yard items.” This was approved pending more details on the back yard items. Request for more details has been submitted to Janice Klein and awaiting her response. (Response from Lisa Myers, Garrard House program director, on May 8, 2007: The girls have been working to clear out the gardens in front and back and will plant flowers/trees and add lawn ornaments to perk up the appearance. They are also requesting items they can use to suntan such as lawn chairs, and we are looking into a sprinkler that they can use to play in. Lisa and the girls also talked about hanging plants on the back porch.)
Fashion Show – only at about ½ reservations from last year. Currently at 185 and last year it was over 300. There are 40 booths for Bloomin’ Boutiques which is also down a bit from last year. There were several questions about models and when they need to be where. Andra also needs workers on Tuesday at noon.
