III. Report from Chairperson Marx
A. Chairperson Marx brought it to the committee’s attention that many people didn’t know about the DVD’s. Ms. Milligan suggested letting the homeowners association know about the DVD’s.
Ms. Quilleux suggested mailing bulk advertisement about the DVD’s. This was turned down immediately, due to the cost it would be.
Chairperson Marx will ask Ms. Eaton about advertising the DVD’s for sale in the
October 2008 Indialantic Record. Ms, Marx will also ask Ms. Eaton about where is the money coming from for supplies of the DVD’s. Is the money coming from the Committee or Town’s budget?
Mrs. Twitty-Mercer will repost the advertised sign for DVD’s for sale at Town Hall on the counter top.
Ms. Bozeman suggested sending a mass email of advertising to the Melbourne Beach event of Indialantic. Committee members are asked to send email addresses to Ms. Bozeman for this mass email.
Ms. Bozeman will be adding Ms. Dorsy Evans to the Potential Interviewee list.

The event is for September 2008 at the Melbourne Beach old Town Hall building. The event will have a display of Indialantic. It was suggested at this meeting that committee members be present to sell DVD’s of “Historical Conversations” and “Portrait of a Community” along with postcards and to hand out the “Historic Building Guide” brochure from the Town’s 55th Anniversary Celebration-2007. The event is open to the public only on Saturdays, September 06, 13, 20 and 27, 2008, from 11:00 a.m. till 3:00 p.m. This event needs to be advertised more, and the suggestion is word of mouth.
