Saturday, May 30, 2015: No Session

Cousins, I, Terrance, failed to follow through appropriately on scheduling so our community service event fell through. As service is very important to me and the team, I’m highly disappointed with my inability to “handle my business.” Please, take the day to serve at your home, school, church, block, etc. need ideas, click here

You should be receiving invitations to the 10th anniversary celebration on Saturday, 27 June. 

Saturday, May 16, 2015: Multimedia Team & Documentary Meeting

The session for Saturday, 5/16/15, will be from 9:24 – 11:30am in the Gilman Room. This session is for the Multimedia team and those who have volunteered to work on the documentary. We will be conducting interviews with former students for the documentary. This session is very important so plan on attending, even if you aren’t part of the multimedia team. It’s always good to see family. Make sure your other cousins know since some people aren’t getting the post notifications via email.
