As mentioned in the minutes, Rose Marie Hess read this piece at the October HG meeting. It was suggested that we could sponsor or get the ball rolling for an event such as this for students in the college who are on a very limited budget.

Rose was asked to talk to John Reimers about it in November and we will see where it goes from there.
