^^^We got a lot done today! We will be discussing more next meeting. Everyone that was in attendance today please be present next week to give an update on your culture research progress.
We first discussed the dates for the International Banquet and the Advocacy for Literacy. A Google Calendar was created and shared with all the members of SRHS.
The next generation of SRHS was discussed. We are not worried about membership but we need strong leadership for next year. A discussion with Miss Brimm will be had on the issue.
Kaitlyn, SRHS Vice President, is nearly done with our t-shirt design. She will show us a picture next week.
The SRHS took a walk to the corner of the parking lot wall where it says F.J. Reitz High School for the possibility of a club photo. The idea was approved. We will be planning a day where all members can be present.
The sister organization proposal for ESH is nearly done. Justin Erdmier, SRHS Communication Coordinator, will send a copy to Jack Happe, SRHS President, for approval.
The YMCA has decided not to host our Homeless Makeover. We decided to change our project due to the limited time frame given.
An Advocacy for Literacy
What: An event where we promote literacy and reading among the adult population. We want guest speakers to talk about why reading is important and how literature has a powerful impact in our lives. Reitz Jazz Band would perhaps play during the event. We will have a children's section where volunteers will read children's books.
Who: Our target audience are young adults, teachers, students, the general public. Partner up with the Franklin Street Events Association. For food we will produce a brochure with the restaurants and types of foods available on and near Franklin Street.
Justin has created a form for people to suggest guest speakers.
Jacob Ferguson attended to take photos for YearBook and to receive information to write an article for the YearBook and the Reitz Mirror.
