Joel says that we have permission to paint a giant mural. This Saturday
we will be going to CASPAR in 2 groups: (10am and 2:30pm). Meet on the
front steps of the Student Center to head over. Feel free to come late/leave
early if you cannot make these times. We'll be taking a complete tour
of the facilities to get a better idea of what aspects of CASPAR facilities
need improvement. Remember...we have $975 raised from Nat? Hunger and
Homelessness Awareness Week (last semester? fundraiser) to spend to
improve this place! Also we need to start brainstorming ideas for our
mural. We will be starting a notebook/log that will be left at CASPAR

interested in volunteering at a nice, elegant-as-they-get soup kitchen,
try Rosie's Place (http://www.rosies.org). If you're looking for someone
to go with, email firstname.lastname@example.org and a group can be arranged.

emailed Rich Berlin, the "MIT Dining King/Chief" and are awaiting

be considering using MIT SafeRide to transport the food to CASPAR...that
is, unless Mr. Berlin can provide transportation for us.
staying on campus during summer can contact us to continue CASPAR weekend
service and even food salvage
