Heyo! We’ve got a busy week leading into reading week and I hope y’all are surviving your deadlines.
Fun side note: I’m aware that a lot of members are unaware that the society actually has a library for members to borrow books from (https://www.dropbox.com/…/SFFS-Book-Library-Catalogue-2018-…), if you’d like to borrow a book, just drop a message to Secretary Andrea.
Reminder that you have until this Wednesday to email in your opinions on board game sales (see last email/post for more info).
ALSO, nominations for committee positions are opening on Feb 25th so please consider if you’d like to run!
