The WSHS met on July 27, 2014 with Sandy Brug, Marge Straube, Hal Pearson, Gene Morey, and Sue Buxmann present.
Marge suggested we all think of a company that has a history in Windsor and get in touch with them about our project. Some of the suggestions were GW Sugar, Gambles, Manweiler’s, Morey’s, Brunner’s and Heinz Co.
So far we have $28,000 for our statue.
Kristie will get us 500 Thank You letters at the cost of $145.00.
Sandy, Marge and Sue volunteered to walk up and down the Main St. and stop at all the businesses and ask them to put a post card in the window, leave some rack cards, and ask for donations.
Aug 15, Severance Days…Marge will call Nick to see about being part of this celebration.
Aug 22, Pro Challenge Bike Race…Kristie will see if we can get permission to set up a card table with donation box and cards to pass out.

Kristie suggested we pass out our cards at the AHSGR dinner meeting in Sept. Marge will talk to Kathy Heisel. Kristie suggested we start a Go Fund Me acct. on face book. Our face book page is doing very well. Kristie suggested we put some trivia questions on there about once a week. Kristie suggested we attend Chambers business after hours and check the fast food places in town and see if they give grants. We will reapply to Schraeder Oil on Sept 15. They consider grants quarterly. Also the Windsor Business expo is coming soon and we should make an appearance.
