Environmental Club Minutes 9/22/10
o New Faces! J
o Michael’s article
§ Saved paper by putting the article on his phone!
§ The bacteria was NOT eating the oil in the Gulf it was only eating the gas.

§ Adopted Glenn Rd. which means we clean it twice a year
§ We did a clean up last year
§ We can clean it whenever we want
§ Sunday October 17th, 2010 is a potential clean up day, will be in touch about it.
o Vice President
§ River clean up was a blast. We should look into doing it again sometime.
§ Phone numbers were only taken for use at events if we get separated so no need to worry about us contacting you via phone, it will be primarily email.
§ There will be an updated list of contacts sent out shortly
§ $1200 in our budget will mostly be used for P.E.E.C.
§ Maybe P.E.E.C. will be done in the spring so we have more time to plan for it.
§ Fundraising ideas because the budget only pays for 10 people to go to P.E.E.C. Don’t want to have people have to pay to go.
§ Get other clubs to come with
§ For those who don’t know what Sieg is, it’s a conference center owned by the University for conferences and for clubs and organizations to rent out.
