Open D.A.N meeting

Contributed by Dani Novak on 05/05/10 

Hello friends!

I hope everyone isn’t stressing themselves out too much during the
finals crunch time! Come and take a breather from your hectic schedule
by eating Chinese food with IC’s Do Anything Nice this Thursday at 7
PM in Williams 302! We are looking for interested leaders to come and
discuss the future of the club.  This will be a laid back, stress free
atmosphere and you do not have to be currently active in the club to
attend the meeting. So if you are interested in taking on a leadership
role next semester or if you want to learn more about the club, please
stop by!  If you are planning on coming, please email  so
we know much food to order.  Looking forward to seeing everyone!


Dani and Melissa
