Hello everyone....I hope you aren't too awful busy during this last week before break...I just wanted to fill everyone in on some things:
*The DC trip went pretty well from what I could tell besides the rain Friday)...but it was very informative and a lot of fun...we had plenty of money for the trip and there should be around $170 left which will transfer over to next semester.
*The officers for next semester are: President: David Hayes Vice President: Sabrina Iqbal Secretary: Hillary Norman Treasurer: Clayton Williams
*This past wednesday was technically my last meeting as president....I have turned the reins over to David...so, please check your e-mails to see when or if he wants to have a meeting...OFFICERS: you all may want to have some sort of meeting to discuss what you want to put on the budget for next semester. There are only 2 wed. when we get back, so i didn't figure there was any point in having meetings....unless David decides to.
*For those of you that signed up to do the Relay for Life: don't forget it's December 10-11, from 6pm to 12 pm....we currently have 18 members on our team, so you'll only have to walk about an hour...i will e-mail you all with specifics as i find them out....please let me know if you have any questions...and don't forget to get donations!!
*Alright, I think that's everything, if anyone has any questions, please let me or David know... Thanks to everyone who helped me and to everyone who participated in our activities!! I really appreciated it!!
