WAKE FOREST HIGH SCHOOL BOOSTER CLUB MEETING MINUTES: Monday February 17th 2020
WELCOME – Marc Wachter called the meeting to order at 7:05 PM. Marc welcomed all booster club members and thanked Renae Hill for finding a new location to meet. Marc thanked Marty Ludus, the venue owner, for hosting our meeting. Marty spoke to the group and informed us about the opening and the 12 years it took to renovate Corner of Wake Forest. Marty would like the opportunity for WFHS to have events at his venue. We can host our monthly athletic booster club meetings here. Marty introduced his wife Debbie and informed us there would be refreshments after the meeting. Marc informed the members that Spring Spots was starting up and that Sign Up Genius was sent out. He asked the group about VOMO and whether we should continue to put our effort into it. VOMO is very App driven. VOMO offers volunteers for every 10 hours logged you can receive a $5.00 Starbucks card. Members brought up if we stay with Sign Up Genius we can give an incentive of a gift card for those who log the most hours. Spring Parent meeting was discussed and Marc said it’s very important we stress to the parents on volunteering. Also, very important to stress about the athletic booster club and all that we do. Marc asked Coach Joyner if we could send an email out to the whole school to reach all families of students.

Jeff Denny did corporate sponsorships and did great because he knows so many people in Wake Forest. His children no longer go to Wake Forest High School, so this area needs to have members start contacting companies. Jeff was very instrumental with sponsors for the weight room. This is where we are going to bring in the most money for the ABC.
