1.) *NEW MEETING TIME* there have been
some requests for an earlier meeting time, so we are going to try that
for the next few weeks and see
how it works out. The new meeting time is: Tuesdays at 5:00 p.m. (still
in the atrium).
2.) Contacted Evan Mcdonald at
the Keweenaw Land Trust
about implementing a nature trail/conservation easement on our
property, but the school didn't like the idea of a conservation
easement in case they wanted to sell the property. Still meeting with
Mr. McDonald, probably early next week though, to ask him a few
questions about getting a nature trail in there.
3.) we are collecting empty
bottles and cans to recycle, and will donate the money to tsunami
relief funds. We'll try and get collection boxes on a few places on
campus. Also, if you have empties, hold on to them, and we'll collect
all the cans and recycle them. The credit union is accepting donations
until january 28th, so we should get all our recycling done by
then.There will be more details about this later on this week or early
4.) We're looking into having
a movie night soon, and watching The
Day After Tomorrow. More on this as we work out details. If
anyone has a preference for a date and time, e-mail the list.
5.) As a senior gift, we're
going to create a scoop library, so start saving your exams as you get
them back, and dig around for old exams too!
6.) Max has a friend at LSSU
who wanted to know if we were intrested in doing a wilderness first
response course. There was an interest in this, and we'll have more
details on it soon.
7.) We also want to do
something for/with the humane society like a dog or cat food drive, or
raising money or finding things to donate.
8.) It was also suggested that
we go on a snowshoeing trip up by hungarian falls or someplace equally
as pretty, so that's something we could plan and get going soon for a
9.) There are several
activities that we could do towards the end of the year:
*We could have an info table set up
for spring fling (not sure what the date is for that).
*Earth day is april 22nd (also the
last day of regular classes). The Environmental
Sustainability Committee typically has events going on for earth
week, so we could join in with them and/or have activities of our own.
*The first stretch of pick-up dates
for the adopt-a-highway program is from April 23 - May 1, so we could
do an end of the year clean-up. We'll talk more about these as we get
closer to the end of the year.
We had a
short meeting tonight to talk about our upcoming projects.
1) October 24th at 1 pm we're
building bat boxes in celebration of
Halloween!!! should be super fun, there will be food too i'm sure!
2) We're not going to be able to do
the official water clean-up
on Make a
Difference Day due to prior commitments of club members but we'll work
a clean-up project somewhere soon before the snow starts flying!
3) Medhavi's communicating with the
middle school principal,
there's no meeting next week, see you the following week (don't worry,
there will be a reminder e-mail)!!!!
