Treasurer’s Report: The updated budget was circulated.  Kathy Ross informed the general membership of an earlier meeting and vote held by Executive Committee of the FA Board and FA Officers.  She explained that the FA carryover exceeded the regular budget and that $10,000 was approved for campus beautification. These funds will be distributed at the direction of Carol Baranowski, who is working particularly with two parents in the area of interior and exterior design.  $8,000 still remains as a surplus in the current FA budget. There were no questions and she thanked Ms. Baranowski for her continued efforts on this important project.

Committee Reports:

Staff Appreciation: Kathy Ross reported that the next staff appreciation event, scheduled for November 16th, is an event where each faculty member will receive a pie. She stated contact would be made by class reps or via doodle poll to see who is willing to make, buy or bring a pie. She encouraged all present to participate as a way to thank staff and faculty.

Fine Arts: Cathy Chavez reminded all that the November 9/10 Fine Arts event is the play, “The Dining Room”.   In order to raise funds for Fine Arts, baked goods will be sold during intermission (a doodle poll is out asking for participation). Also, both US and MS  Bands and Choir will perform on the evening of November 14th.

Sip for St. Gregory:
Reporting for Pam Bass, Suzan Costich stated that all in attendance had a fun time at the Nov. 3rd SIP event.  There were great reports on the electronic auction, venue and food as well as constructive remarks on the line for martinis.  She asked for those who have not yet claimed their auction items to do so by contacting Rachel or Heather Hiscox in the Development office. Also, she announced that Pam is very interested in further comments so please contact Pam with thoughts.  Finally, Mrs. Costich thanked all of those who helped make the SIP such a great success.
