Old Business:
Update on grant for lower park - Melissa/Brittney
Brittney took the DCNR work shop training class on the computer. Basically the grant funds will not be available until 2023.

Melissa said she had a visit from the Pittsburgh Foundation. They came out and looked at the lower part and the upper park on our projects. I received a business card from them. Peoples Gas has a large grant also. This upcoming year we will apply through the Ligonier Foundation for smaller projects at the parks in the mean time.

Brittney talked about several other grant opportunities she is looking at.

Update on Rippy Party
We have a date set. Just need to get the tickets made. The date is February 19, 3-7 pm at Legion. Getting 150 tickets made. $5 per ticket and give (5) chances at door. Have easy foods.

If someone wants to donate baskets we will do a roll off ticket as well. We can use basket party tickets or just use individual tickets for donation of $5. Aaron said he found a location to get tickets that is cheaper than anywhere else.

No other old business.

We will see also if we can get Misty Haven for the event.

Aaron wondered where we get the money for movies. He thought we were just dumping money out on them. Pat and Melissa both said movies is part of our fundraising events at the beginning of the year.
It would bring more people into the town.

If they are not willing to do it then I will do from the store again. Michelle asked how much we go through of hot chocolate on one of those things. Melissa explains usually 3 large pots of hot chocolate. Discussion made on the type of containers, insulated or not. Michelle to possibly see if she could bring several home from work for the event.
