7 of us blankly stared future in the face through cell phones on a conference call that began at 9:35 pm, Central Time on 5-10-16.
With a little over $2 in the 3DLPKS bank account and $165 in Go-Fund-Me we all decided 3 dates to have community fundraisers:
[During the battle royal of hashing out dates, Mike Kerner warned the many times to take into consideration the upcoming necessity to volunteer for Old Settler’s Days coming up September 7th-September 9th.]
After the golden dates were decided, those on the call appointed Jeff Caldwell to be the event coordinator. Nick Mallare already made his first decision easy: Picnic! … With a raffle! (raffle items have not been decided [cheesecakes and a signed copy of “The Real Crash” by Peter Schiff were presented]).
August 20th does not have an event idea. Jeff will be working on this.
October 9th will be an event at a shooting range!
There will be a fantasy football league open to the public that will be held in August or September. It is cash only buy-ins. The total buy in is $100. $50 is a donation to the Third District Libertarian Party of Kansas and $50 goes into a pot where the winner of the league takes all.
Mike Kerner is going to become the donation regulation machine and police officer.
One of our goals is to raise enough funds to mail all the Libertarians in candidate districts invitations to an/the event(s).
Jason Conley is looking into the specifics of adopting a highway in Kansas. The specific locations will be provided on the next conference call. We are looking at a section of either K-7 or K10.
We are also looking to volunteer at local food kitchens/pantries/organizations. Details to be hashed out next meeting.
Our next conference call will be Tuesday, May 24th at 9:30 pm, Central Time!
