Bruce Frankel – Education minute - gave a very informative talk on “Surveys” with suggestions of:  keep the surveys short, give enough options, must be timely and relevant.  4 reasons to do a survey:

Learn about what motivates respondents and what’s important to them; Give respondents an opportunity to discuss important key topics; it’s an unbiased approach to decision-making and finally it provides a snapshot of the attitudes and behaviors.  

 

Andy Michels – Run the Ridge GLOW – thanked Dede and her husband for their time and efforts; mentioned the night had a large family attendance; it surpassed his expectations and plans to make next year even better.  Next Step Ministries will be the non-profit receiving a donation from this night.
