Minutes of meeting on November 28, 2016
Sadsbury Township Municipal Building

Present: Anthony Schuibbeo, Simon Jessey, Matt Hensel, Deborah Jessey, Erik Brecht

Absent: Jesse Donovan, Lori Brecht


Following the resignation of former members and the appointment of new members, the Committee temporarily reorganized to accommodate the changes.

Meeting called to order by Anthony at 7:20 P.M.

The following positions were voted on:

  • Acting Chair, Simon Jessey
  • Vice Chair and Operations, Matt Hensel
  • Treasurer, Deborah Jessey
  • Fundraising and volunteer outreach, Erik and Lori Brecht

New business

The committee began preliminary discussions for the Township’s Tricentennial Day. Topics included potential dates, venues, and activities. Currently under consideration is a three-venue event, which includes a 5K run starting in Bert Reel Park, a Community Day-style event at Gateway Church, and an evening fireworks display in the park off First Avenue – the latter would need coordination with Chester County Airport and the FAA.

The committee discussed how to publicize itself and attract more community involvement. We talked about the possibility of holding movie nights in various locations around the Township.

The next scheduled meeting would normally fall on December 26, so the committee decided to cancel that meeting and hold our next meeting on January 23, 2017. The January meeting will also include a full reorganization of the committee.

With there being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 8:30 P.M.
