We will be holding an election for new board members at our next PTA
meeting on Tuesday MAY 19TH at 7pm and attached you will find the
nominations for several of the open positions.  However, the current
Treasurers two year seats are both open for next year and we are in
great need of at least one volunteer to take on the job.  If you are
interested, please reach out to Buffy Anson for more information. 

Although our currents board members terms are up, they have both
offered their support and assistance to the incoming Treasurers next

The position for co-Fundraiser is also open.  This position will be co-chaired and is a great opportunity to connect with local businesses and help raise funds for the PTA. 

Thank you all for your continuing support of the Cottage Lake Elementary PTA.
I hope you and your loved ones are all safe and healthy!
