Vice President- Alex Connor   awc7647@truman.edu

  • The Speaker’s Bureau is having our presentation titled, “The Sex Ed You Didn’t Get in High School”
    • This Thursday(Nov 5th) at 7pm in the Baldwin Little Theater
    • We have been working very hard on this presentation and everyone should come see it.
  • Please consider making a donation to the Faith Lutheran sun awning project at our meeting or attend one of the fundraiser events. Our entire HLTH 366 class has been working diligently all semester for this project, and we are trying to raise as much money as possible. The children there have very little protection from harmful UV rays on their playground and this awning will help immensely.  If every member donated just $1 that would make a big difference towards this project.
    • Events:
      • Sun Safe Soup Supper (soup, bread, cookies, brownies, and more) at Faith Lutheran School on Nov 8, 5-8pm ($5 in advance or $6 at the door)
      • All-You-Can-Eat Pancake Breakfast at FLS on Nov15, 11am-1pm ($5)
      • Colton’s Night is Nov17, 5pm-8pm
      • Bellacino’s Night is Nov 30, 4-9pm

  • This Sunday, November 8, there is going to be a Soup Supper at Faith Lutheran School from 5-8 to raise money for a sun awning. Tickets are $5 if bought beforehand or $6 at the door. If you would like to purchase tickets, email me or Christian. The meal includes a bowl of soup, bread, fresh vegetables, dessert, and a drink. We need desserts for the event , so the SPHA exec has agreed to give 30 minutes of service for every dessert made for the event.
