Hello All!

I write to you all bearing some good news and bad. Here’s the bad news: We are not going to be able to have our meeting tomorrow. Unfortunately, Umass is holding some sort of conference tomorrow night and as a result ALL of the rooms in the campus center are booked–so lame. So, what we are going to do is reschedule the meeting. I have officially booked Campus Center Room 917 for Tuesday October 19th at 6 pm! At this meeting, we will be discussing upcoming builds, more opportunities to volunteer, fundraising, and Spring Break. Speaking of which…Here is the good news. We have booked our Spring Break trip for this year and the location is….drum roll please….MIAMI FLORIDA!! I know, so great. SO! If you wanna party in the city where the heat is on with Habitat, show up to the meeting on Tues because this will be an important meeting for all prospective Spring Breakers to attend. See you all on Tuesday. Thanks guys!!

Last Spring Break meetings

04 March '10 by .

Email that was sent out:

Hey Spring Breakers,

So I have received emails this time from several of you who cannot attend this meeting. The paperwork cannot be sent online, and must be filled out in person. It is of the utmost importance you meet with me or another Habitat Officer by next Wednesday to make sure all of your paperwork is filled out, or else you will not be able to attend with us this year. We do not want this!! We want everyone to have the opportunity to go. SO if you CANNOT attend tomorrow’s meeting please, email me a time you can meet me or another officer, either Friday, Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. IF you cannot somehow schedule to meet with us, we will be having another MANDATORY meeting next Wednesday (REMEMBER THAT IS 2 DAYS BEFORE WE LEAVE), where everyone must attend!!

For those who are attending tomorrow’s meeting:
When: Thursday, 3/4/10
Where: Campus Center Room 905
Time: 7:00 PM
What to Bring: Bring Driver’s Licenses/ID Information (Cannot be UMass Student ID) AND Health Insurance Information

Please attend tomorrow’s meeting if you are able too!! We need to get all the paperwork filled out and in before next Wednesday!

Hey Everyone,

I know it may be the middle of exam week for some of you, but I hope all of you are doing well!

This email is specifically for those who are attending the Spring Break trip to Alabama. We are having a MANDATORY meeting tomorrow. Sorry for all the caps-lock, but it’s of utter importance that you come! We have several things we will be discussing, so I suggest all those who are going on the trip attend this meeting. ALSO, there are still some of you who haven’t paid yet, and it’s really important that you do so, AT THIS MEETING. It is $25 just for now, so make sure you bring that. OR they may be a great chance you will lose your spot.

Date: Thursday, February 18, 2010
Time: 7 PM
Location: Dukes Room, Student Union
Bring: $25 for those who haven’t paid yet!

If you CANNOT come to this meeting, email us AS SOON A POSSIBLE.

Thanks everyone! I hope to see all of you tomorrow!!
