We are getting so close to the end of the semester so I'll cut right to the chase:
Shirley Sagawa will be speaking with the Civil Society and Public Policy class at 3pm tomorrow in SPEA (PV) 169. All are welcome!
Our deal we've negotiated for Red Cross CPR and First Aid Training is an excellent opportunity to (re)certify a marketable life-saving skill. Email Jesse at email@example.com within the next 24 hours to register.
Elections! We are looking for officers for next year. If you love AmeriCorps, send us a nomination! Email Stefanie at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about the time commitment and duties involved.
AmeriCorps Week inconveniently falls after the semester ends, but don't let that deter you from finding an event. Here are a couple:
The Hoosier-to-Hoosier Sale is in need of volunteers! Now that it's April, they are lining up volunteers for early-summer activities. They will need some need people to help collect items from dorms and Greek houses, as well as sort through them. Please visit http://www.indiana.edu/~sustain/hoosier_to_hoosier/volunteer.html to register. It looks like there are shifts available Monday and Tuesday, May 9-10. Monday 9am-12pm and 1pm-4pm. Tuesday 9am-12pm. These are collection days and they need at least a couple of people for some heavy lifting! "Think of it as helping your buddy move, if you're budy was the whole city of Bloomington!"
