New Business:

Alumni-New Student Send-Off Party: September 6, 2003

As of this day, 170 people have RSVP'ed for the party. We need to move the location of the party from Judy Silk's house. Judy has identified a nearby park that we can move to. We will do a site visit to it tomorrow morning (Saturday 8/30/03) at 10am.

Two people are coming down from the UCSC alumni office.

We'd like to get some gift certificates from Allison. Maybe from Bookshop Santa Cruz or the Bay Tree Bookstore? Or from Target?

Maybe we can get Marti Noxon to speak? Roz or Allison will ask.

We have some questions:

We need to have places to sit for grandparents. We should sit 8 to a table and get 25 tables, and 200 chairs.

We should look into a canopy instead of umbrellas.

We should get table cloths in blue and gold. Look into renting these.

We need folding tables for check in and food. Robin and Rachel can each bring 3. Fran can bring 1.

We need to bring drink buckets.

Balloons - We will get 1 bag of regular assorted balloons, and 15 yellow and 15 blue balloons. We will also get 1 helium tank.

Fran will bring a step ladder in case we need it for decorating.

Robin will get a raffle bowl and decorate it.

Fran will do signage for each college area, welcome signage, and UCSC signage, as well as recycle signs.

We need to order more food. We need food for 200. Right now, the cost is $650. Fran & Roz will pick up the food at 10am from the Co-Opportunity Coop in Santa Monica.

Fran will pick up drinks (bottled lemonades, iced tea, etc).

Judy will pick up utensils and stuff like that. Fran will send Judy a list of what was left over from the Summer Trip.
