Hello All!
Last meeting went well! It was good to meet all the new faces! As per a comment the meeting before we decided to split our meetings in half from now on. The first half of the meeting (from 3pm to 3:30) we will discuss planning and from (3:30 to 4pm) we are doing a open or topical discussion. At last weeks meeting we spoke about what the word gender meant. 

Below is a list of the To Do's for each of the up coming events. I know it looks like a lot of stuff! But we are trying to be as thorough as possible. Most of the things to do are small and quick tasks! If you can bake goods or can donate funds please respond to this email stating so. 

After the meeting minutes included is a summary of the notes William took at the Club and Organizations Luncheon.
