Nonna Rose's-there was a discussion about a possible fundraiser with Nona Rose's,
a local food establishment in Franklin. The PCC voted that we will not be pursuing
a fundraiser at this time, as we already have 2 similar fundraisers that have been
on-going for the past few years.
Fun-Run - Karen Mahon shared some exciting details about a "Fun-Run" official
5k road race that will be held on Sunday, May 31st @10:00 am. We will have a timing
company, t-shirts, running bibs, lots of great sponsors, activities and a separate

equipment in good shape, please contact Kim DiMarino. Kim and committee will periodically
check on the items that our kids use on a daily basis and maintain them appropriately
(ie: inflate balls, check jump ropes, etc).
Karen Guliano (a Parmenter mom) is teaching Zumba classes at the Senor Center on
Friday nights at 7:00 pm. There is a $5.00 fee to take the class. Karen has generously
offered to donate $2-$3 back to any Parmenter parents who attend the class! Simply
place a "P" by your name on the sign up sheet. Why not plan a "girl's
night out?" If you have never taken Zumba, you must go and check it out! It
is great fun! Thank you Karen!
