MITSFS meeting called to order, 63.4 Ksec SST,
Cathleen Nalezyty, President and Skinner, presiding; Lee Fuchs, Pseudo-Onseck, recording.
No meeting has been held in some time. No minutes read.
Work is happening! John Chu will visit us in fall (details to be determined) and Max Gladstone and Gwenda Bond emailed about possible visits over the summer. Exciting!
Picnic is happening, 10am, including the committee members
No, Tristan is not allowed to set a fire. No burning down the forest, that would be bad. Maybe a Zippo lighter or a match.
TZ is happening! Deadline is July 15! Emails will be sent to writing professors and classes. People should write things! Picniccomm should write a report
We got a ton of new Keyholders! YAY. Normal shenanigans.
CPW happened and we gave lots of books to pre-frosh. It was fun!
