Final Club Meeting for Fall I 12/8

Hello Creative Writers,

Next Wednesday 12/8 is the final official meeting of the LaGuardia CC Creative Writing Club. During this meeting we will be having our holiday luncheon, which will include both hot and cold refreshments and food. Also, club president Jennifer Phanomrat will be bringing homemade goodies.

In addition, since we have had low turnout for our meetings in the past 2 weeks , we have extended our deadline for submissions to our chapbook. The new, hard deadline will be next Wednesday. We are requesting that all submissions be made electronically to the club's email address. If we fail to get at least 20 submissions, which may include multiple submissions by members, we will not publish the chapbook for this semester. Instead we will have a chapbook for the Spring. The Spring chapbook would be inclusive of submissions from the entire 2010-2011 academic year.

Additionally, since it is the holiday season, we would like to bring up 2 important events that are going on at LaGuardia. There is a coat drive sponsored by the Honors Program, Phi Theta Kappa, and the LaGuardia Catholic Student Association. There are donation boxes in the E, M, and C buildings. Also there is a food drive sponsored by the Natural Applied Sciences Dept, Nursing Club and the Godian Fellowship. The donations go to a food pantry located in S Jamaica, Queens run as a non-profit by an elderly woman. They are seeking cash donations and canned food. We are asking all members who attend the final meeting to contribute at least $1 or one can of food, which will then be taken to the Nursing Lab by the club officers.

Please try to attend this final meeting as we also intend to hold club elections. If we do not have all 6 positions completed, this will delay re-certification and may lead to the demise of the club. If you are interested in keeping the club alive or have a desire to run for a position, make every effort to attend.

We really hope to see you all there! It has been a fun semester and we plan on continuing to meet informally during Fall II. So please try to make it and bring a friend. Also faculty and staff are welcome to join us, so spread the word!

Much Thanks and Season's Greetings,
The Creative Writing Club
