Report from the Waffle Feed (03/31/07)
Monday night's waffle feed brought in over 400 people and $1026. We had planned for about 250 people, as last year we sold 200 plates. I had parents all over buying up juice and milk! In addition, one of the parents put together a silent auction which added about $560 of income, with more still to arrive. The kids also received two $2000 donations - one from a parent's mother's foundation and the other from the local sportsmens club. We are good to go!
Fundraising News (03/21/07)
Things are looking a bit brighter in terms of funds. We sat at needing $7,000 for some time. Updates regarding funds collected at the waffle feed and donations will be forthcoming.
Team News (03/21/07)
We may have St. John's University professor Larry Davis along as both geologist and cook. Larry is waiting to see if he will be teaching summer school that week. Lee and I can both attest to his gourmet cooking with Dutch ovens in the field! I have heard from some past trippin' MSUM students - Cassie, Mike, Justin and Natalie, that they have an interest in going along this year! Way cool!
Gearing Up for This Year's Trip (03/19/07)
Greetings Troops, The 2007 Field Investigation Trip is less than two months away! I am not sure how that happened - school just started, didn't it? Regardless, I thought it was time for some updates on both ends. Monday, March 26th, will be a busy kick-off night locally. We will have a Belgian Waffle Feed fundraiser from 4-7 p.m. and a parent/student meeting at 7:30.
