– GVAA Softball: Matt Lynch introduced himself as the softball commissioner and a coach and brought awareness to the softball program. The program is seeking sponsorships and donations to support field maintenance and new dugouts. Sponsorship forms were made available with opportunities to have a 2’x4’ banner ($100 sponsor annually) displayed on the fences at the fields or secure one of three spots remaining for sponsorship on the scoreboard ($500 initial donation/$300 each year after). Opening day is April 5, and while sponsorship and donations may be received at any time, banners need to be ordered and take two weeks turnaround time. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or questions.
– Peg & Orley Bourland Educational Assistance Fund/Scholarship: Lori brought awareness about this scholarship, which provides financially need-based funds for post-secondary education in trade, vocational, or technical fields to help defray the costs associated with tuition, fees, testing, tutoring, trade tools and supplies, etc. This fund is now awarded year-round through Glade Valley Community Services and The Community Foundation of Frederick.

The bags will be put together at the March 19 meeting. Alan reminded everyone to review the Google doc that was emailed with a list of businesses for drop off and signups, and mark the document so we can coordinate personalized deliveries. Please feel free to check the list and add/edit names.
