The Board of Directors meeting was tonight and it was very motivating. Our new treasurer pointed out that we are not bringing in enough revenue and we came to the conclusion that we need to increase our capacity by at least 15 students AND we need to raise more money. John stepped up and wants to develop a Marketing Committee to get more students and donors.
I was able to talk about our upcoming camps. I'm excited as The Down Syndrome Association of Central Texas (DSACT) is going to sponsor two 4 day camps for up to 8 campers! In addition, we will be having 3 week long camps in July! Helping Hands Home is also going to do a 6 week pilot program this summer!
I have also been working on a grant from Equus for horse care, so cross your fingers. Fed Ex Austin wrote an article that won us a $1000 grant! Thank you so much Fed Ex Austin.
And who knows... We applied for a grant to win a Mueller Building!
