SAACS Meeting April 13th ~ Fundraising Ideas


SAACS will be having a short meeting on 4/13 about raising money for the club in KLA 107 at 6pm.

Last week we were discussing different options for raising money and the main idea that people liked was doing a bake sale of some kind instead of another T-shirt sale.

If you have any other ideas, please come to the meeting and let us know. We’ll discuss the options and plan the event.
