Next Rotaract Meeting 2/19 at 5:00pm

Come join us for our next Rotaract meeting Tuesday February 19th at 5:00pm in L212!  As always, we will have pizza!  Here are some things we will be covering at the meeting:

  • Condom Couture: So, we’re going to participate in a “Condom Couture” fashion show. Michelle has volunteered to model a garment that we construct entirely of 1000 condoms that FaceAIDS gives us for free. Yep. Condoms. Weird. I know. But we need design-savvy, creative minds. Time to put your love of fashion to work!
  • Rosie’s Place: Volunteer opportunity next month, sign up at the meeting! There are very limited spots, so be sure to come in and sign up!!
  • Global Day of Service: More like a month of service…we’re currently planning 10+ volunteer opportunities for the Month of April, come in and see what we have to offer! From small-scale volunteering at local homeless shelters to large-scale zoo or park clean-ups. Any we get tee-shirts. Uh-mazing.
  • Social: We’d love to plan a Sam Adams or Harpoon Brewery trip soon–please come in and we’ll take a vote on what day or weekend works well for everyone!

Hope to see everyone there!
