Meeting opened with prayer by Paul.

Minutes read of previous meeting and approved. They will be sent to Deanna to be put on the website.

Our treasurer and trustee were both missing in action and therefore no report this month.

Principals report was informative as always. Attached is the copy of the ward report that has information covered. Of interest to the secretary, March 4, Michael Chiasson will present to the students. Looking forward to hear the reviews. Another highlight – visit NDC facebook regarding the successful Quebec trip.

Thank you cards were delivered to Paul, for signing. (Outdoor seating)

The ladies involved in organizing the Gala – Jacquie & Elizabeth (Jessica Nelson was nominated by previous mentioned women) have agreed to get together before the end of the month to start the ball rolling. Heather would contact them by email to find a suitable date.

Nancy Alexander agreed to write up the grad cards again but she will need some help as there are approximately 87 grads this year. Heather offered to help out. Grad for 2019 will take place May 25th. The Memorial Centre will hold the dinner but the decision on the church, either St. Francis de Sales or St. James in Okotoks, is still up in the air. Heather also presented the idea of little grad chocolates (Grad hats or diplomas) to be included in the cards. Idea got lost in discussion and never was voted on.

Jacquie talked about educating kids regarding the product they put on their bodies. This topic would be a good discussion item for a future panel talk. – “Things to keep teenagers healthy.”

A thank you card needs to be sent to the Town of High River for their purchase of Sobey’s cards and then re-gifting them.

Meeting ended with prayer.

Next meeting March 26, 2019 at 7:30pm
