Treasures for Troops
PASA has approved the request for $150 towards the cost of mailing boxes to Iraq. We are giving them a copy of the bill, and asking that they pay their portion directly. We are now paying our portion ($227.25) as well, and Wendy will write a letter to them explaining the delay.
The Community Day fundraiser did not work - no one turned in any money.
We are still holding a bake sale March 8 from 10am-2pm. Ka has reserved a table in Main Place. The bake sale will be themed St. Patrick’s Day, so bake everything green. The bake sale will be donation only because then we do not pay taxes on what we raise. Kate and Chris will work 10-12 and set up; Stephanie will work 12-1, and Jessie will work 1-2. Other volunteers are welcome to earn service hours.
Den Night was reserved by another group on March 8. We discussed holding a graduation party similar to or in tandem with one a Latina sorority organizes - Ka and Rita will follow up.
The Career Center is not holding a GRE workshop, therefore we will try to set one up. Ka will circulate a note to members with two possible day/time choices: April 12 at 12:30 or April 13 at 5. We will go with whichever gets the most response.
LPH initiation/Student Celebration
We gave an update on the progress made so far - the invitations will be mailed next week to students who graduated in fall, and will be passed out in courses for current students.
We have confirmed plans with the Radisson Hotel in Pleasant Prairie. The date is Friday, March 25, at 6:30. Chris went before BNRC of SOC and requested $100 toward the event; we do not yet know if they will approve it, but it seems likely. that would leave $75 in costs (for room and snacks) to split between PAC and LPH. Rita Thomas and Chris Dollar will put together a flyer to be passed out in classes. We already have half a dozen alumni who have agreed to come.
Kim brought up a possible opportunity for service hours. The Humane Society is having a fundraiser at the end of spring break and needs people to sell tickets to the event and raffle tickets. Ka will circulate a note to members letting them know of the possibility. The easiest way to figure out how to give credit for this is to have a table set up on campus.
Wendy brought up a question about types of activities that qualify for service cord credit, as the range of what people are doing is becoming quite broad. After some discussion, it was agreed that all projects should have some connection to the club, or at least the campus, in some way. Wendy will modify the web site accordingly, so everyone knows.
