  • Discussed Funding for Social Events

Updates/Highlights from Campaigns

  • Gardening got some radishes; they are looking for new people to join working groups.
  • Recycling would like to have the Free Market open when other campaigns are at the SEAC Office anyway.  TBTT is already on board.  Let Lydia know if your campaign is okay with this.
  • If you want to be a new leader for Solo Cup Recycling, fill out this form:  3w1-PAHCJREreM/viewform?usp=send_form
  • Anyone is welcome to join ESLI when they go to Matthew Whaley this Wednesday; if you have magazines, cereal boxes, bracelet strings or other items for reusable crafts, give them to Talia or drop them off at the SEAC Office.  Emailecoschoolleaders@gmail.com with any questions.
