9/22/09 Meeting

Hey! This is your club’s co-President Juliana speaking. 🙂

Thanks to everyone who attended our 2nd official meeting!

Matt and I were very excited to see so many new faces!

Today did some re-introductions (of Matt, Tiffanie – our secretary, and Mrs. Margrave – our advisor), and we told everyone about Ms. Neylan, who will be our OFF-campus advisor. She substitutes in our district, so some of you may have had her before. Anyway, she (along with Mrs. Margrave) have been with the club since it first started, we’re excited to get all the help we can this year. =]

Matt, Tiff, Mrs. M and I also shared a little bit about why we, personally, are in ICU club, and why we had decided to join.

Then we wanted to have a few of the new comers volunteer why THEY decided to come today, Alex shared about the LRA (Lord’s Resistance Army) and another Alex shared about why she decided to join this year. We also had Joe share, who was a member last year, :]

Alex and Alex both got a copy of the original Invisible Children movie and the 2007 update. 🙂

But unfortunately we only had three volunteers to share. Obviously that didn’t work as well as we’d hoped, so we’ll have to try a new tactic next time.

Capt. Collet also shared about his son (who is in Uganda right now) and how our club can talk to him about what’s going on there RIGHT NOW – which is pretty cool if you ask me. 🙂

We also talked about possibly showing the original movie during two meetings. (Since the movie is about an hour long, we would have two consecutive meetings, like Tuesday and then Wednesday in order to finish it).

Sooo…. Your action items for this week are to:

  • Check out our facebook group (search “VHS ICU Club 09-10!” we’ll have info about or new Twitter on there as well later today.
  • Think of creative ideas for a fundraiser! (Can be big or small)
  • Comment the blog (hey, since you’re already here, why not get to it? Just scroll down to where it says “0 Comments” or whatever the number is, and post something! 🙂 )

See you next week! 😀

    1. woo! ICU! :]

    2. I thought the meeting went a little rough because we haven’t all got a chance to get to know each other but things will get better. I wanted to say that I joined the ICU club to find out more abut the conflict in Uganda….and it doesn’t hurt that is looks good on a college application 🙂

    3. This is FREAKIN SWEET, you guys! : D

    4. Thanks Amelia. 🙂

      And Madi, you get the blog commenting award for being the first to comment! Woot! 😀

    5. awesome! LOVE the debrief..especially for those of us who can’t be there… your specifics made me feel like i was there!!!!
      Nice job!

    6. oh, and 1 idea
      -any time you reference another on-line location, you should hyper link it ex. ion this post, the facebook group
      it’s just one more way to make it easier for people to do it (PLUS cross linking will help increase your search ratings on search engines). 🙂

    7. I ‘ve went to the two ICU meetings we’ve had so far this year, and I’ve got to say that I’m loving the cause and the group 🙂
