Hello brigaders!

     I hope everyone is having a good start to the Spring quarter! Just a little over 4 months to go before we go down to Honduras!! With that said, we do have a couple of things we have to accomplish this quarter with the Walkathon being the first. It's going to be held this Saturday ( 4/11/15) from 9am to 12pm at the Foothill College track. We could use some help setting up so if anyone is available, kindly email me here. There will be fun games and activities such as the water balloon toss, tug of war, massage, nail painting, henna, zumba and a DJ.
      Also, on the 17th, which is a Friday, we will be having a flea market sorting activity from 10:30am onwards. This is in preparation for the upcoming flea market. If anyone is available, please email me here. As usual, please don't hesitate to contact me or anyone else in the board with questions and we hope to see all of you at the upcoming events! Have a great Spring quarter!

Hello Brigaders!
I hope everyone is doing well. As you know, we are over half-way done with winter quarter. Which means...
Our trip to Honduras is 5 months away!
It is time to start working on the most entertaining part of the brigade (at least in my opinion), Charla! This is a time where volunteers teach children about brushing their teeth and eating a healthy diet in a kid-friendly way. Hand puppets and dancing are a must.
However, fluency in Spanish is not mandatory. During a Charla, we mostly communicate with pictures and movements (someone even played Spanish music on his phone while dancing for the kids as they brushed their teeth). So no worries if you studied another language (say....French...) for five years and have never taken Spanish (like moi).
If you are interested in participating in Charla this year, please let me know at noelle.gross12@gmail.com, including your name and availability. We will form a mini-group within the brigade and bring the rest of the group up to speed right before we leave for Honduras. 

See ya around!
