New Faculty Advisor Needed.
We need a member of the Elon Faculty to take the place of our former advisor
Mike Magoon. That means we need to be asking faculty if they would be
interested in helping. Please have interested Elon faculty members contact
Angie Smith at 449-8000 ext 253 if they are interested.
If you have any questions or concerns and would like to contact your
officers for Rotaract by snail-mail feel free to send a message to our
Campus Box 7119.
It was decided a couple of weeks ago that we will be conducting committee
meetings at different times than during our regular club time. This means
that you need to be in contact with the service directors to find out when
they are holding a meeting. This decison was made so that we will be able to
focus more on the club business during our weekly meetings instead of
breaking off into sections. Also this system will allow for more new ideas
to be presented and discussed by various members.
Community Service Projects
We are coming along well with our plans for upcoming community service
projects but we still need more volunteers to help.
An afternoon Literacy Program has been arranged at Gibbonsville Elementary
School on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3-4:30. We will begin tutoring and
helping the kids at this school beginning Wed. Nov 4. If you are interested
in helping and becoming involved please contact either Melissa Dawley at
email@example.com or Emily Infanger at firstname.lastname@example.org. They will be
glad to answer any questions that you may have.
We are still making plans to do the Reading at a local library. Please stay
alert for more details at a later date.
Here are some potential community service projects that we may be working on
as the year goes on.
- Visit a Rest Home around Christmas
- Help out at a Vet. Shelter
- Adopt a Grandparent
- Help with Habitat for Humanity
- Rotaract Special Olympics
- Relay for Life
If you have any other ideas feel free to
mention them at the next meeting.
Final Exam Candy Grams
We will be selling Candy Grams in Moseley on Nov 21, 22 and Dec 2,3. Be
thinking of a time when you will be available to help sell. We need everyone
to help support this project!
Also be bringing in recipies for us to include in the cookbook that we are
organizing. We hope to have this project close to finished by the end of
this school year.
