Happy New (School) Year!

Here is what we discussed at our first meeting of the year:
College Veg Pledge! http://www.collegeveg.org/ (Tuesday, November 13)
We want to plan an activity the weekend before the pledge day (Nov 9 or 10) using the SAO's Late Night fund, possibly a joint venture with BEAN. We would serve vegan food, show an AR-themed movie, and get people to sign up for the pledge.
We will tableslip for the next meeting, which is Thursday, 9/20, 7-8pm in Wilson 105. If you can tableslip Ratty lunch on Thursday, please let us know.
We will also be protesting KFC soon.
We all want to improve the quality of vegetarian food in the cafeterias. Let's think of concrete improvements that could be made and then suggest them to Dining Services.
Currently, meetings are Thursdays, 7-8 in Wilson 105. If this time doesn't work for you, but you want to come to the meetings, let us know, because we can still change it.
Also, we might want a name change. Animal Rights Club? Vegetarian Club? Post your suggestions.
-Eric

The KFC protest is scheduled for October 3 at 11:30 am to commemorate World Farm Animal Day. I'll bring fliers for it to the next meeting.

I also thought that Brown Animal Rights Club made for a cute acronym. As does Brown Animal Liberation Society. :)
