Painting class: net income. Music/Movie in the park: audience survey.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Verbal surveys - Music in the Park (Buffalo Orchestra): Combining event with movie and petting zoo good idea? 90% yes, 10% yes but needs refining (sun too bright for musicians, petting zoo distraction, food too far away); Winsted Night Out: Combining event with Winsted Night Out good idea? 50% yes, 50% yes but needs refining (fire trucks too noisy during music, police giveaways took too long, weather not great, should be at Mill Reserve Park); Art Camps: Met your expectations: 90% yes, 10% yes but needs refining (stilting was harder than expected); Lego Contest - Love the creations, lots of impressive builds. Email survey - only 2 responses, both positive but no constructive suggestions; Participation - comparable to last year (art camps).
