Meeting Minutes of 4/25/11 Old Home Day Committee

Daniels Rm – Hancock Library – 6 pm


Members Present: Kristen Bernier, Siobhain Martin, Bob Fogg, Dan Harper



  • No word from Steve Zakon-Anderson about contra dance for Sat. evening.
  • Committee voted unanimously to have Jan Caskey serve as Grand Marshall. Jan has graciously accepted the invitation.
  • The magician is penciled in for the Ice Cream social - Cost $475


Theme: After discussion about the theme and slogan we were unable to come to a final decision. We decided to have of us check in with family and friends and take a straw poll about the slogan. The debate centered on whether or not the phrase "You Don't Know what You Got, Til it's Gone" was too negative.


Budget: Dan raised concern about whether or not the state budget cuts could effect the town's budget and the impact, if any on the OHD budget. Question for the selectmen.


Action Items:

  • Talent Show – Kristen was going to ask Jody Simpson to coordinate.
  • Run for the Honey 5K road race - Dan was going to make sure Hunt and Ginger will be able to once again coordinate this event.
  • Ice Cream Social – Bob to check with Mathew Hale.
  • Tennis Tournament – Siobhain to give a courtesy call to Mary Lou O'Neill. 
  • Barb Ellis volunteered to coordinate children's events.
  • Pie-Eating Contest – Siobhain to check in with Sara Sanback.
  • Parade – we all agreed this is a key element of OHD and may want to devote more time to discussing next week. Coordinator, judges, prizes, MC, etc all need to be firmed up.
  • Siobhain has agreed to look into the pricing of t-shirts and presented the committee with some very nice designs. The purchase of t-shirts will not happen until to work out our differences over the theme/slogan.


Next Meeting – May 2 @ 7pm – Daniels Rm
