October 29 Meeting

October 22, 2014

Our next meeting is October 29th at 7pm in Carver 232. We will be painting pumpkins for Halloween, so please bring a pumpkin and your most creative ideas! If you are unable to bring one, please email Megan. Megan will be buying some, but it would be nice to have a count. If Megan doesn't receive an email from you by this Friday then Megan cannot guarantee you a pumpkin.
T-shirt design is underway, but we need to decide on a color. Please complete this Doodle poll by the next meeting. Megan is estimating they will be $10/person.
As always, email Megan with any questions you may have, and see you next Wednesday!
