Founders Day Dinner (Oct 7)
Initial Reception at house then a bus ride to dinner at the St. Paul Student Center. The undergrads are looking for roughly $400 in alumni support. Sean will follow up and request that they reach out to the alumni to attend, if they do that, we’ll pitch in some money.
Cash flow is tight at the moment. We have several participating members that have not paid dues for the year.
U of M Homecoming (Oct 12/13th)
There will be a raffle with 3 tiers of prices. Ticket prices will be $5, $10, $20. Some of the alumni will not be there due to Eut’s wedding on Saturday. As a result, we may place a greater emphasis on Friday night.

- · Matt to provide a list of OSU alumni to Bud. He’ll call them setup a happy hour or invite to next happy hour.
- · Sean voiced concern that with the housing corporation becoming its own 501 3c we may want to work together as a collective organization to determine what’s in the best interest for the kids and the house when it comes to scholarship and housing corp. We’re going to the well to the same people. Matt suggested getting undergrads, alumni, and sponsors together to plan out collectively the direction we should go with donations, use, and future benefits.
- · Bud will find previous scholarship winners essays and send to Matt to be included on the website.
