5. New Business

Discussion about clean up procedures at Twelfth Night 2013. Carnavalle 2013. We voted to purchase two pushbroom dustmops and dustpans, plus regular broom for the TGS supplies, to improve cleanup times. TGS people will use their past experience at the Twelfth Night 2013 site to help with cleanup at Coronation.
Dear TGS people,
Is anyone free to help me decorate the Coronation site (especially the gym) on Saturday morning? Alexander is still sick, so he is not available.
We will have large banners from Vanished Wood, plus all the personal banners that show up, plus whatever TGS tablecloths/ hangings/ runners will be available.
The stage and the gym will be much improved by decorations, but there is no need to decorate the church.
What do you think about decorating with flowers, if we can spare any flowers from our local gardens? I have a nice crop of daffodils, and violets, and maybe it's time to trim some of the forsythia, too.
Thanks for all suggestions and/or volunteers!
