Here are the minutes for the last meeting:
Hey Pre-Vetters! I hope you made it to Monday's meeting to pick up your T SHIRTS!!! Don't worry - you can still pick them up at the next meeting if you couldn't make it. Here are some more updates from Monday night:
Subway Percentage Night Stop by the Subway at Five Points between 6 and 9 p.m. this Thursday to help raise money for our philanthropy! If you don't know where that is, the address is 1573 S. Lumpkin St., which is actually walking distance from campus (I have walked there before, no lie. And I do not enjoy walking.). For those who want to drive, there is additional parking behind the building, not just those few in the front that always seem to be full. Invite everyone you know, too, because customers don't even have to mention or be affiliated with Pre-Vet Club for the money to go towards the Athens Area Humane Society! Be sure to sign in with Rebecca before you leave - you don't want to miss out on fundraising points!
Point Tally You can continue to keep up with your points here:

When you sign in, be sure that the 10/23-10/24 tab at the bottom of the spreadsheet is selected. Also, please sign up on a laptop or computer, as cell phones seem to be causing trouble.
Athens Corn Maze Get ready for, in my opinion, the best member's activity all year! Join us at the Athens Corn Maze on Thursday, Oct. 16 at 6 p.m. for the epitome of fall fun. Be one of the first ten members to sign up, and you will only pay half the price for your ticket!
