*This past wednesday was technically my last meeting as president....I have turned the reins over to, 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!!
