It’s 2013 and we are kicking off our efforts to raise funds for the 2013 Wallingford Independence Day celebration.
This meeting will be Thursday January 10, 2013 at 7:30PM at Gaetano's Tavern on Main in Wallingford.
This will be the 4th year without town funding for the event (expected) and we are holding this meeting to set our schedule for soliciting donations as well as planning a main fundraiser.
The outline for the meeting is as follows:
-- Bring people up to date as to where we are going into 2013
-- Introduction to new Vice President of the Fund – Steve Murray
-- Set a financial collection target
-- Set a collection completion date
-- Discuss a meeting / conversation with the Mayor regarding any possible funding for town services (police, fire, etc.)
-- Discuss options regarding choosing a site for the show / working through the town of independently
-- Other items as brought up
We are always looking for new workers / ideas for fundraising so if you have the time and inclination to volunteer we would welcome you to come and sit with us.
Again, this meeting will be Thursday January 10, 2013 at 7:30PM at Gaetano's Tavern on Main in Wallingford.
Feel free to come and introduce yourself, have a little bite to eat and let us know how you can help us reach out 2013 goals.
