Hi Gabriella,

    That's alright I definitely understand.  At our meeting we  
discussed the international conference.  If you want to go, please  
register online at www.ewb-usa.org.  Its $85 and we will need to pay  
for it ourselves upfront and then we will be reimbursed.  You will  
have to miss class all day thursday and friday.  The conference begins  
early Thursday morning so we will have to leave for UMASS on wednesday  
night.  Let me know if you register, you need to do it before March  
1st or else there is an additional $50 charge that will not be covered  
by our budget.
   We are going to hand out bags of coffee at our next meeting to sell  
on our own for $8 and receive total profits.  We will also be workign  
with feel good to sell grilled cheese and bagel breakfast sandwiches.
We will have one or two guest speakers at our next meeting to discuss  
soils and water technologies. (prof. hayden & mandar)
  see ya next week!
