The much-talked about Human Services Fish Fry is set to take place. I know your mouths are watering already, so get ready and come out to support the Human Services Club.

Here’s the rundown:

Human Services Club Treasurer John M. Smith spearheaded the fish fry, and will serve as the primary cook. We appreciate John’s effort and enthusiasm.

As John says, “When you hear the fish sizzle in that cooker, you’re gonna buy a plate!” So, we look forward to as much support as possible – especially from Human Services Majors. Feel free to drop by, buy a plate and help serve.

Special kudos to Chairwoman Cynthia Brewer-Frank-Smith for her selfless goodwill by donating $20 each month to benefit St. Jude Children Hospital on behalf of the Human Services club. Thank you Cynthia! The club appreciates your heart for giving.

Faculty Advisor Terri Hamrick reminded all in attendance that the REMBA conference in Greensboro is on the horizon (April 15-16). Please see the previous post for additional information. Club members unanimously decided to set a deadline of April 1 for declaring conference participation. See Terri for details.

Service Projects
Much discussion continued about the club’s service project. Various members have look into possible outlets for the project, but schedule conflicts have made it difficult to decide on a project.

Club Member Therese Vick suggested the club should seek out NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) for a possible service project. Therese volunteered to look into possibilities with NAMI.

New Members:
The club welcomes Therese Vick into the club as an official member. We look forward to your continued input and service.
