The purpose of the meeting was to plan for Area Council booth to be setup in Wascana Park during the Regina Dragon Boat Festival.  The booth must be setup by 7 a.m. and can be taken down by 6 p.m.  It was estimated that if 4 hour shifts were established with 3 volunteer workers per shift a total of 12 volunteers would be required to man the booth. 

Sister Diane indicated she would gather all of the items needed and place them in the office adjacent to hers for Sister Melissa to pick up on the Friday.  Sister Melissa will bring a table; there is a shelter to use.  Brother Brett agreed to pickup the helium tank from A-1 rentals; he will also return it.  Sister Diane will complete and submit the vendor application this week.  Volunteers should be reminded to bring lots of water.  There was a discussion about covering the cost of a meal for volunteers.
