(remember to read the entire thing, there is important information at the bottom! also, there are links throughout, so if something is a different color, there's a good chance it's a link.)
So many things have happened in the past few weeks! I apologize that we haven't been able to get together lately. However, seeing as this isn't really affecting anything we're doing, I would suggest that we change our meeting times to once a month. This seems to work and doesn't put a time strain on anyone. We'll just have to pick a day that everyone can get together. I'd like to meet at least once more before break, and we also have some book club business to discuss.
Regarding book club:
One, we need to vote on who will be heading the book club. We can either set up a poll online--but that means everyone must vote online--or we can try a hand-polled vote. Either way, we would need everyone involved at the meeting or online.
Two, after the person is picked, they need to do the following:
- Put up a sign-up, or set up an information meeting and advertise.
- Put together an advertising campaign (Shelby and Branton) before Christmas break.
- Decide on meeting times and questions for each.
- Make sure everyone can buy/or get Looking for Alaska.
- Call the location you'd like to have the meetings at and figure out when a good time is for them and you.
- Photographer, Brittany W., needs to take pictures of a few meetings/events for this.
Regarding "Odds in Our Favor" campaign:
As some of you who have been checking the HPA website may know, there is a campaign going on right now called "Odds in Our Favor." This is a campaign that compares the economic inequality in Panem to the economic inequalities we are experiencing in the world today. This is taking place in the form of social media (i.e., blogs, videos, pictures, and so on). It has gone viral and many websites have taken up the call of the campaign.
Here is the HPA's description of the campaign.
You can join the resistance here.
We won't be participating in this as an actual campaign, as most of us are very busy with schoolwork, finals, activities, extracurriculars, clubs, and the like. But, if any of you would like to submit to this campaign, the links are above. You can also change your Facebook picture to you with the District 12 salute (three fingers up in a girl scout type salute) as many others are doing.
Here are some more resources if you think this might be something you're interested in.
~*~Please discuss in the comments. If we don't get enough discussion, we will have to have a meeting. However, if we do discuss and everyone participates, we should be able to only have one meeting before Christmas break.~*~
Thank you to everyone and Don't Forget To Be Awesome (DFTBA),
