Trash/clean up crew is needed for Block Party on Saturday, September 29. Setup crew and tear down/trash crew is needed for Friday, October 5. (2 separate crews).

If anyone is available to help during these times, please contact Danny Schlegel.  There is a possibility that, if we have volunteers, SAA would receive money in the general fund, which could be used to defray travel costs for field trips.

second annual Dance Marathon (Raider-thon) and we need a team of

According to the web site, it starts at 10 a.m.  Also, they are calling for people to submit/present papers; the deadline for submissions is Nov. 20.  This would be a great place to present a paper!

 

Future Meeting Times

SAA and PAT will continue to hold joint meetings, which will take place once per month.  The meetings will be held on Sunday evenings at 8pm, in the group study room of the library.

Next Meeting: Sunday, October 21

November Meeting: Sunday, November 11

 

Future Field Trips

SAA/PAT would like to plan a field trip to take place between fall and winter quarters.  This would be a one-day trip to a place within approximately a 2-hour driving radius.

Ideas raised at the meeting:

Henry Clay House – Lexington, KY

Cincinnati Museum CenterCincinnati, OH

 

Spring Break trip?

This would be a 3-4 day adventure.  We could possibly invite professors to come along.  Also, we would aim to plan it out so we can hopefully go behind the scenes at museums and archives.  This destination could be up to 6 hours away, or more if we really like your idea!

Please bring ideas for either field trip to the next meeting so we can make a decision and then begin to make plans.
