Present: Cynthia Bohling, Melissa Baker, Lesanne Fliehler, Shawn Pitton, Linda Bostian,
1. Fall Breakfast Wrap-UP
There were 18 No Shows. The feedback from the surveys was very positive. For next year- bacon for
everyone (not just the people who chose omelet’s)
2. Finalize Plans for “Meet your Match” (all helping organize?)
October 30, Noon-1 p.m. (or 1:30?), S401 PBB
“Meet Your Match” at some kind of game and expertise at work. The idea is to break into interest groups
(from survey results)… based on expertise/what people want to learn.
Melissa- Reverse trick-or-treat? Do we want to go with the “healthy” treats? We could donate to the
Neighborhood Centers of Johnson County.
Shawn- Will look into food from Hy-Vee (breads/salads) or pizza
3. Mentoring of New Staff.. Examine start of survey to staff.
Reviewed draft from Lesanne. Lesanne will send out updated draft and we’ll send it out before the
October 30th event so we can pair people on areas of interest (“matches”)
4. ESC Banner
Lesanne asked Linda Knowling to work with us on a design, but she was busy last month. Will try to get
a timeline on when she can help. Cindy will find out what Matt learned from SSH about the 3 x 4 banner
5. Mitten/Hat Clothing Drive- Combine with fall food drive or separate?.
Decided we’ll do a food drive in late October/early November and let the Dean’s office do the clothing
drive. Al is in charge of food drive.
6. Edith Ennis Award
Linda organizing. Deadline is November 17. Message sent out mid-October. There will be a committee
of 5. Cindy will shadow Linda and take over next year. The award will be handed out at the Holiday
Dinner on December 12.
