About the event

Hi at this kick off planning meeting we will review all the booths we hosted last year and determine which we will keep & identify those that we need to modify or replace.  Then we will identify team captains for each of the booths and have each team captain work on supply list & budget requirements necessary to execute their assigned booth.  We have a total budget of $400.  Date of the event is August 19 , from 9 - noon, with an additional hour before and after for set up & take down/clean-up.  This is the only standalone, push event we currently host and it requires many hands for execution.  It is a great opportunity for us to interface with the public/families.  Last year a big draw for kids.  The Booths we hosted last year included: 1) Welcome, 2) Census, 3) Bugs Up Close, 4) Pollinaor pathway/bubble fun, 5) Honeybees, 6) Story Time, 7) Facepainting, 8) Refreshments (water & popsicles) and 9) pollinator life cycle walk.  Most booths were highly successful but I think a few can be swapped out with others that may be more impactful/hands on for the kids.  But we will discuss all this as a team and plan another execellent event.  Look forward to seeing you all!  We will also have ongoing planning meetings which we can schedule basis best availability for all after this first session.
