Meeting discussed the theme of CCRMC’s float. It was decided that we cannot decide about
float design as theme of the parade is decided by Plano Early Lions club, which has not
happened so far. Since the meeting Ravi found out that this year’s parade theme is

Patriot Golf Signup (9/11/2020 is still the date) report by Ravi
We now have 35-36 people signed-up; but, need a minimum of 70! Time to start hustling!
$150/entry with an expected cost of $55-60.00, with the balance going to Republican Party
On-Line Signup by New Members by Ravi
The “issue” is that new members are not entering minimum information to create member
on-line. As a result we are losing touch with them.
Discussions included that we need to streamline our process to collect more data! Otherwise
we are losing members. However, it is OK to encourage existing members to pay on-line?
Dalayr brought-up that Jim is Key to this process; however, the sign-up is not actually on our
site, but on PayPal’s. Therefore, not confident that we have any control over what information
is gathered. Dalayr offered to dialog with Jim, Ravi and himself the following weekend.
Young Republicans (CCRMC Ancillary group) report by Ravi
Many have suggested attention to this may be an important position for our club to be involved
with?! Hayden Pagent’s name was brought-up as a contact who’s very involved at the state
and local level. Ravi to follow up with Hayden.
