Hey Everybody! Dr. Burns would like to know if it would work for everyone if she did her presentation about her trip to Africa at noon on Friday since we don't have P-lab this week. I know that there are a few of you that have class or have to work at this time, but will you all let Rachelle or Mariah know if you can be there or not by tomorrow afternoon? Either comment, post on the wall or text one of us (Rachelle= 290-8330)(Mariah=690-6617) Please try and make this presentation :) Thank you!


Hello NAfME Members!
This is just a reminder about the cake raffle at the womens/mens basketball games on this Saturday, February 23. Please bring one or two cakes of your choice to the game (whatever you can manage!) . Our table is going to be in the main hallway. And also, can we get a definite answer on who is availiable to sit at the booth at this time, since most of us are in the pep band? Meet at the gym at 5 o'clock, the game is at 5:30! Any other questions just post on the wall or talk to Mariah or Rachelle. Thanks for a good semester so far guys!

Okay everybody! The new semester is upon us and we already have things to plan. Tomorrow we should have at least a quick officer meeting after band. Will Mondays at 4:00 still be a good meeting time for you all?


CONGRATULATIONS NAfME MEMBERS on placing 1ST in DSU's 2012 HOMECOMING FESTIVITIES!!!!! Thank you for all of the hard work, dedication, and TIME! We did it!!!

Hey kids, the annual clubs & organization fair is TOMORROW (8.23.12) from 11-1 in the Student Center Lobby.

I can be there to set up at 10:45 but I have class from 11:30-2:15 so unfortunately I will not be able to attend the whole thing. Please let me know if you can help out. I will ask you all in choir :) Have wonderful Wednesday classes!!!

Whatevs works just want to get us on the same page.
