February Letter Writing Campaign
Plan to contact UCSC legislative person to collect sample letters for our
writing campaign. We are interested in finding out the campus's priority
issues and issues for Los Angles area alumni. We will provide an issues
forum at the February Brunch meeting to develop sample form letters. On
our letter writing day later in February we will provide envelopes and
stamps for people writing with us that evening. We are also trying to
arrange to have a representative from campus come down to speak with us at
either the February 3 meeting or the February 21 meeting to discuss what
issues the campus feels are a priority.
Annual Wine Tasting
We would like to have a more intimate event this year preferably held at a
restaurant such as Brunos, Chadwicks, or LA Farms. We are trying to locate
a venue for this event. If there are any UCSC Alumni restaurant owners who
would like to suggest their restaurant please contact Michele Ploessel at
