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.

A special shout out to John Brookes, a member of the Alamance Breakfest Rotary Club, for joining our meeting on this past Tuesday!! Thanks a bunch!

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 have bu\egun tutoring and helping the kids at this school and we will continue to do so throughout the rest of the year. If you are interested in helping and becoming involved please contact either Melissa Dawley at sw8strnbelle@aol.com or Emily Infanger at einfanger@elon.edu. They will be glad to answer any questions that you may have.

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.

Fund-Raiser Projects

Final Exam Candy Grams
We will be selling Candy Grams in Moseley on Nov 21, 22 and Dec 2,3. At this last meeting we sent around a sign up sheet. Thank you so much for volunteering so far but we still need some more of the spaces filled so if you could check your calendars and find out when you are available that would be great. If you decide that you can make a certain time and would like to be added to the list just let me know and if you need your name taken off the list please let me know that as well. I would really appreciate it. Try to go ahead and advertise by word of mouth to your friends so that people will already be informed about our project. Up to two people can work each of the shifts.
