Jim Davis sighting...

So I work at MOSI, and Jim Davis came up to my window today. It was great. I said to him, "By the way, I totally support you, and good luck to you." And he says, "That's great! Go to my website and sign up for newsletters." And I told him, "I'm signed up for a couple of things online through USF." And he's like, "That's fantastic! Have a great day!"

So even though worked sucked today, that was awesome.

Firstly any new memebers to this group that aren't on my mailing list via email let me know so i can put you on it! My email is akoutsog@mail.usf.edu.

So I guess as of right now I need everyone to tell me what days and times would be best for them to stop by and help man a table on campus so that I can get the money and also get it arranged with events to get a table there and talk to colelge of arts and sciences and get it approved. Also if you could write me back and tell me what you think would be the better choice:
-cookies/baked goods: $1 for 2 cookies, $1 a muffin, etc.
-pizza- $2 a slice
coffee- free
-soda- .50 cents a can
-juice- .25 cents a cup (like fruit punch stuff)

anyways let me know ASAP!

I know I can do a table:
Mondays/Wednesdays: in lieu of comnig to the office
Tues/Thurs: after 4pm
Fridays: available

so if you can just write me back telling me something like this that would be great! thanks!

Now that we have a room and all of that, I guess the next meeting we are going to elect officers officially. The positions available are: Vice President, Secretary and Historian.
According to the constitution (which I cannnot send ther revised version at the moment since I don't have that disk with me unfortunately and which I had copies to pass out last night but totally forgot about ) the positions entail the following:
Vice president: shall step in and take over ther responsibilities of the President when the President is unavailable or when the President requests them too.
Secreatary: will keep track of all affairs and events the club is currently in or in the process of; will keep track of all memebers contact information.
Historian: will take notes at meeting to keep a record of what happend at every meeting.

If you are interested in "running" for any of these positions let me know. And I might just conduct a vote via email or what not. Remember, it would always look good on a resume AND I would need these ppl to attend meetings regularly.

next meeting

The next meeting to talk a little more about ideas we can do as an organization is going to be held THIS Wednesday in the Marshall Center at 8pm. At the time we are just saying it is to be held in the lobby, although we are in the process of trying to reserve a room.

if you can spread the word!

Hurricane Katrina help...

Hey guys, if you didn't already know, the St. Pete Times Forum is accepting donations 24/7 until sometime this week or next (the next six days is what Bay News 9 said). They are in need of the following items:
non-perishable canned food
bottled water
baby food and diapers
hygiene products
first aid kits
pet food

I know we're all poor college students, but nothing can compare to what they are going thru, I know you know that. I just wanted to put the word out there so that you can help if you can.
