Thanks Giving!!!

Hey All, Thanksgiving break is almost here and it’s time to celebrate! But first, here’s the latest update on what AAA has been up to. I know this is kind of late but, thank you to those who volunteered for the I-House Indian Dinner. You guys/gals were a big help. Thanks again.

Past Meeting Topics

So our 6th general meeting topic was Ally Building. This meetings goal was to get the members to work together even if they don’t know each other. The members had to get into groups and build the tallest and sturdiest building using marshmallows and spaghetti noodles. In order to get the materials, they first had answer questions written on the cards; questions that help get to know more about the members.

Our 7th meeting topic was Bonding! First we got into groups and shared a little bit about ourselves. The bonding began when we answered questions that was drawn out of a bag, questions ranging from fun, light questions to more serious issues relating to Asian Americans. This was a chance for officers and other members to know a little bit more about each other. Good activity to do before our Thanksgiving Dinner that’s coming up.

Our 8th meeting is not an official one held by AAA officers, but was hosted by the Cross Cultural Center, presented by Jessica Li. They had a workshop today called Finals: Where My Food At? where we made some quick, snack food which can come in handy during finals when people have no time to prepare for a big meal.

Latest Meeting Topic

Next week there WILL NOT be a general meeting due to Thanksgiving Break!! Yay for those who are planning on going home early Wednesday.

White Elephant– this event will replace our general meeting the following Wednesday, Dec 1st, when we get back from Thanksgiving break. This is also going to be the last meeting for Fall quarter. Because we don’t want people spending a lot on presents, the gift should be around $5 more or less. It’s optional if you want to buy something more expensive. *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

*Quoted April Hien, AAA Secretary, because I got a bit lazy on typing this super long post. By the way, sorry about that. Thank you for bearing with me and getting through all the information.
