My apologies for having to cancel last week's meeting - let's get everyone up to date.
Our Doodle Poll is now closed. Our mandatory meetings will be:
Tuesday, March 18, 5pm-6pm (with Jamie)
Friday, March 21, 12pm-1pm (with Noah)
The Biology Department has graciously allowed us to store all of our flea market items in their storage unit on campus, but the time has come for us to move everything out of there because they need that space back. We need everyone to take at least one box during whichever mandatory meeting you are attending, to keep in storage until our next flea market sale in May.
To help lighten the load for everyone, I will be having a garage sale at my house on Sunday, March 16 from noon to 4pm. Please sign up here to help at this fundraiser. If you can make it to our meeting on Wednesday, you can take at least one box at that time and bring it with you to the sale on Sunday. If you are going to help at the garage sale, it would be a huge help if you would take a box from our storage unit with you. I know it sucks to hang on to old items, but we have no other place to put everything (and I personally already have several boxes in my own storage unit as well as in my parents' garage). So, thank you for your cooperation!
On Monday, March 17 we will be hosting an on-campus fundraiser for St. Patrick's Day.
Our fundraiser will be a guessing game, and the rules are simple:
- We will have a bowl of green grapes and a stack of green 3x5 cards.
- Each participant pays $1 to guess how many grapes are in the bowl, and they will write down his guess and contact info on the green card.
- The person whose guess closest to the correct number of grapes gets half the amount of money we raised
- The person whose guess is furthest from the actual number wins the grapes.
We will have this fundraiser during college hour, noon-1pm in the quad. If anyone is able to get a bunch of green grapes donated, that would be preferable to one of us buying it. Please sign up here to help host the table.
We have asked one of our members, Meileena, to take care of our Facebook account, so a big THANK YOU to Meileena for doing this! Keeping all avenues of information updated is surprisingly time-consuming, so this is a huge load off of Noah and myself!
Speaking of social networks, we've also created a Twitter account in the hopes it will help everyone stay updated on club happenings. If you have a Twitter account, please follow us @FHMedDenBrigade.
Noah has been calling around to different places to see if we can still host a face-paining booth, and also offer henna tattoos since we have at least one talented member who does henna. If anyone else knows how to do henna tattoos, please contact us. More info on these events when/if they come together.
That's it for now. We hope to see you at our upcoming meetings. Please see the side bar to the right for all of that info, and info on the events mentioned above.
