Hello crazy kiddos!
question: Why can't a bike stand by itself?
Sorry if you haven't been getting the minutes I sort of forgot about
whole listserv that Gabe so conveniently created and I was reply-alling!
Hike for Hunger was a big success! Thank you all so much for helping.
We made $1312! A 30% increse since last year VERY IMPRESSIVE! Oh
yeahhh. Aurora raised $805, Boreus $242, Auster $110 and Vesper $70.
That doesn't add up but you get the idea. Things that went well: 2
vans of people, BPT had fun, FeelGood is happy, Jamie says "mad props
all y'all." Things that could have gone better: More organization
with the prizes.
Crikey Bracelets! Things are going nicely! Librizzle sales are
declining so new plans are being put into action (because that's what
we do). Jamie and Tom had a lot of success going around door to door
today-sold 25 already. They will be doing it Mondays and Fridays.
Jamie is going Wednesday from 2-3 at MAT and Harris Millis
[log in to unmask] Cook Commons tabling might be a plan, too.
Issues of social avtivism are next on the agenda. Perhaps you want to
save the whales. Maybe you could battle it out with Tom who wants to
nuke the whales. That's just an example but perhaps you can come up
with something else that you are passionate about. Other real
brainstorming plans are coordinating Best Buy with COTS to make a
storage shed because Best Buy wants to win some kind of competition.
Alternative Spring Break (ASB) deadline is coming up! I'm going to be
a site leader so you should all apply it is an incredible
experience!!! http://www.uvm.edu/~uvmasb/index2.php Nov. 10 is the
deadline. It could be exciting to make an HCOL community service
weekend retreat. At this time of year the Chittenden County Foodshelf
needs a lot of help so perhaps we could do a project with them soon.
There is a movie called Black Gold about Fair Trade happening soon at
the Roxy and the HCOL might be able to cover some of price if we get a
bunch of us to go! The Diversiteam would like to collaberate because
they would like to extend their events to more members of the HCOL (I
think...I had to leave while Claire was talking about this-maybe
someone could tell us more about it and let us know what else went on?)
answer: Because it's two tired!
Love you all one million.
