GENERAL CLUB NEWS

Note From Ashley:

As we get closer to summer vacation, student and parent leadership is busy working on preparing for next season and scheduling summer events.  The first summer event is the Jason’s Deli fundraiser on June 9th from 5pm-9pm.  Please plan to attend and purchase a meal to help support the club.  We need at least 20 people to sign up saying that they will attend in order for the event to be scheduled, so please see below for further information.    

Just as a reminder: registration closes for returning members this Friday, May 19th and please do not forget to log your service hours for outreach!  We will also be holding the first parent and student leadership meeting in order to fully transition into new leadership this Friday and will keep you updated on when the summer camps will be held.

OUTREACH

Outreach Parent Volunteers Needed

It’s going to be a great upcoming Outreach season with our awesome student leaders David and Shami at the helm! However, parent volunteers are still needed. Outreach is such a fun, easy and meaningful way to get involved with the teams while making a difference in our community! Outreach also helps our teams be successful in competition and doesn’t require any engineering experience. Cathy Barnette, the current Outreach Mentor, will be taking over secretarial duties in July but still desires to be partly involved with Outreach. If several parents would like to join the Outreach Team, the effort and time would be more manageable for busy parents. Please contact Cathy Barnette at cathybarnette131@gmail.com  if you are interested in being an Outreach Parent Volunteer.

ECG Ice Cream Social

Thanks to all who volunteered for the ECG Ice Cream Social for incoming students! Despite the weather, the event generated a lot of interest in our teams with several new students signing up to be included in our upcoming registration for new team members.

Outreach/Service Learning Hours Approval

Team members please note that as of now Mr. Lawe is still the contact person for logging service hours achieved through Outreach Events. We are in the process of updating the Outreach Events Log with the flurry of events that happened at the end of the year during the busy competition season. Please contact David, Shami or Mrs. Barnette if you have questions about your Outreach Event participation.
