Suggestions for the ALL 10th anniversary party are being accepted. It is being tentatively planned for December 3 or December 9. Cherly will get with Dr. Levy on those dates. 3. Student Symposium will be going on – students will show their projects. They will need to have room hosts. If you are interested, please contact Cheryl. 4. It has been suggested that the registration for bus trips be removed from the Open House, due to the success of April 8th . A handout will be available at the Open House with next trips, cancellation rules, etc. along with the date for the sign-up. This will alleviate the need to come to the Open House early to get in line. Sharon will write up the handout. 5. There has been some interest in having classes at Cypress Center, but it has been decided that we will not be having classes there. 6. Congratulations again to everyone involved with the April 8th bus registration. It all went very smoothly. 12:00 Noon Adjourned This meeting was adjourned at 12:00 Noon.
