To add to Terry's email: We will begin with Dan Baker(CDAE) to
briefly discuss the opportunity to work with him on a project in
Honduras. The project begins as a class in the spring semester for 1
credit and the project is implemented in May. This is a great
opportunity to collaborate and possibly form a perminent tie with
working with this class (if not also taking it)
We will then have Beth from Planting Hope; which is a great
opportunity!! Followed by updates on the workshop at Rowan
University, Homecoming weekend, and general business. I have gotten
emails for orders of banquet tickets as well as raffle tickets already!
Hope you all enjoyed your weekend :)
