VBS Pre-Planning

In this time of economic struggles, we in the Parish Ed committee feel it is wise to confirm attendance before we spend time, energy and money on planning VBS.  We need to guarantee attendance before we can book Vacation Bible school this year.  The cost may be as high as $20 for the full week but unlikely.   If cost is going to affect your decision to come, please tell us.  Please let us know which ones you can and will come to if scheduled on these date and times.  If  you are unsure, this needs to be mentioned because it may break a "tie" but will reduce the chance of over extending ourselves.  Other weeks are not available so please do not suggest June or July, because we do not have the resources and volunteers for those Months.
Day 9a-3p, Aug 2-7
Evening  5:30p-8:00p, Aug 2-7
Day 9a-3p, Aug 9-14
Evening 5:30-8:00p, Aug 9-14
Please choose all day and times that work for you (place an asterisk next to your top choice if you have a preference).  Let us know how many children, especially if your neighbor or friend is coming with you.  We will only book the date and time with the largest number of students who can come.  (Time may vary by an hour or so when actual scheduling occurs.)  We must hear from you by THIS Sat evening, March 14.  We will make a decision on the 15th.  If you do not respond, you will be considered a non-attending familyand risk VBS being cancelled this year.  It is open to all entering K-6 in the fall of 2009..  A preschool will only be available to volunteers' children because space will be too restricted to open to everyone. 
Thank you for your understanding, and promptness responding to this,
Kristi Ray
