September 27th Meeting Synopsis

A talk was given by a guest speaker from Rape Crisis. Here are some statistics.  80% of Rapes are perpetrated by someone the victim knows and 95% if the victim is under 18.  Also, if you plan on becoming sexual with your partner make sure that they know your limits before hand. The phone number for Rape Crisis is 530-342-Rape and you do not have to be in a crisis to call.  Volunteer brochures were handed out.

The second half of the meeting was devoted to Psi Chi business.  November 29th is the day of formal induction, so make sure you have your 15 points by then!  Applications and dues are due by the next meeting, Oct 11th.  Please get them to us as soon as possible.  The dues are $15 local, a semester and if you want to be a national member, there is a one time cost of $35.  The point system can be found on the blog section of our My Space page.

The Butte Humane Society will have a volunteer orientation Saturday Oct 7th 2-3:30, which you all are encouraged to go to.  Their phone number is (530) 343-7917

The Boys and Girls club would like us to build them a haunted house for Halloween.

Here are the events that were discussed.  Friday, October 7th we will be having a Halloween party.  We will be going bowling on Friday, Oct 13th at Orchard Lanes, located at 2397 Esplanade.  It is $4 dollars for shoes and $4 per game per person.  Don't forget that on October 4th we will be having a burger feed fundraiser at the Bear, so be there.  Make sure to show them your green flier so that Psi Chi can get a dollar per purchase.  Bring your receipts back to Psi Chi to get points.  Our main fundraising event will be the "Festival of Giving".

Next meeting, Oct 11th:  A member of "Up Till Dawn" will speak to us, and we will be finalizing the dates for events, and fund raisers.  You also need to have your checks in on the 11th or earlier.
