• Koeze/ Restaurant Certificates- Steve Winter said “The first order will be due on Monday, October 28 and Chris McD’s will not be on the Restaurant list this year. Thus we only have Murry’s, D’Rowes, Sophia/Addison and Shakespeare Pizza.” We want everyone to go 1 % higher than that last year’s orders. Koeze nuts prices have gone up a little this year. First order will be due on Monday, October 28th. Steve Winter emphasized the 1% increase in sales goals this year refers to volume of sales, not
the dollar amount. The 3% Koeze nuts price increase doesn’t count tor sales goals.

Announcements from the Floor:
• Today’s Speaker:
Trent Rush & Monica Palmer from The Missouri Symphony
They began by thanking us for our support of the Young Peoples Concert.
In November they will host third graders from Columbia public schools at two free concerts. The intent is to expose them to orchestral music an an early age both for enjoyment and to begin thinking about playing an orchestral instrument. Students will be bussed in for the concerts. This year students are also coming up from Ashland
They played about a three minute selection of classical music. Specifically Edvard Grieg’s “Peer Gynt”. Everyone was asked to write down what they thought of while listening. A few present related what the piece brought to mind. Answers included mountains, valleys and streams. They then had a drawing for tickets to an upcoming concert. President Mary Dewey was the lucky winner. They are running a conservatory program involving 85-100 kids from all local middle and high schools. These students get together to practice on Monday Evenings. They will present a concert on Nov 11th
(veterans day). On December 15th there will be a Symphony of Choice – Age 17 and under are admitted free.
