Minutes from the August COBA meeting are posted on the website.
We currently have $1755.82 in the COBA savings account and $8286.89 in the COBA checking account. $3000.00 will be moved from the checking to the savings account for the end-of-year scholarships.
Mr. Thibodeaux and Mr. Norton will announce to the Orchestra classes to order their orchestra t-shirts on the COBA website. Freshmen will select the "New Student Package" and will receive a red t-shirt, a black t-shirt, a mask, and a garment bag for $25.00. Existing students will select "Existing Student Package" and will receive a red t-shirt, a black t-shirt, and a mask for $20.00. The deadline for ordering the T-shirt packages online will be October 2, 2020.
There is a tentative concert scheduled for sometime in November. Details TBA. The concert will not be mandatory.
Optional orchestra rehearsals will begin this Wednesday. Please see Mr. Thibodeaux's website for the rehearsal schedule.
Mr. Thibodeaux will get the necessary information to Heather Elizondo to update Charms.
Mr. Thibodeaux will submit receipts for expenses relating to the cello/bass closet for reimbursement.
Vicky Torres resigned as Hospitality chair due to health reasons. The position is now open.
Discussion about fundraising for scholarships and COBA expenses. Heather will look into crowdsourcing for raising money for the scholarships since we will most likely not have an auction this year. Corporate sponsorships and teacher night at McDonald's was also discussed. COBA's expenses are reduced this year so far since most of the extra activities (pool party, Halloween Party, etc.) have been canceled - we may not need to raise that much money to meet expenses.
Meeting adjourned. Next meeting will be October 13, 2020.
