BUSINESS ARISING FROM THE MINUTES
- The new brochure is out, looks very good. The new pictures really enhance the brochure.
- Social: The Christmas lunch is now at the Assiniboine Downs (Terrace Room) with a full buffet for $35.00. Tickets are available from Laura by email. The cut off day is Nov. 8th. People can pay Karen that day. Those who register to go to the lunch and do not show will still have to pay the fee for the buffet.
- May outing will be in Steinbach.
- Leslie sent around the college’s organizational chart for interest
- Leslie stated that at the last meeting Dale Watts spoke to her about the Heritage group considering having a Facebook page. The consensus was not to pursue this.
- The newsletter is out and has some very interesting articles.
- Leslie Walsh, Karen Wall and Liz Polakoff attended the Tea Fest at the Franco Manitoba Cultural Center put on by the ISSA, chair Shahina Siddiqui (our September guest speaker). The three of them had a wonderful experience and recommended that the members consider attending next year.
- Rose Marie Hess read “Coffee on the Wall” which describes what a small town outside of Venice Italy is doing. Basically people can buy a cup of coffee for those who can’t afford it. The cup of coffee notice is placed on the wall and when someone who is in need of a free cup of coffee they ask for a cup of coffee from the wall. It was suggested that the Heritage Committee could sponsor or get the ball rolling for such an event as this for students in the college who are on a very limited budget. Lots of discussion took place and it was decided it was a complex undertaking. It was suggested that Food Services and the Student Association be involved. Rose was asked to talk to John Reimers about it in November and we will see where it goes from there.
- Gail S. mentioned that she has joined Freedom Force travel group and if anyone is interested she can bring a guest to the meetings.
