Current song: "Evil" - Red House Painters

BETA - there was a meeting today. There are two members who I need contact information for, as they need to have waivers signed to participate in HABforHUM's "groundbreaking ceremony" site on the 15th. That's something I failed to mention ... I am going to have to get waivers to each of you, BETA members and officers, so that you have your parents sign them for the organization's record. I will have copies on Monday. Hopefully everything will work out by next Friday, so that as many members can come out as possible and their paperwork already processed. Also, if you're in BETA and have a few minutes, please fill out the Volunteer and Skills Assessment Form on-line at: http://www.stluciehabitat.org/images/volunteer.pdf

Also -- besides (1) waivers you'll get on Monday, and (2) the skills assessment you can get either on-line or Monday as well -- THAT NEED TO BE COMPLETED THAT NIGHT OR WILL HAVE TO BE BROUGHT DIRECTLY TO HABITAT's 2ND STREET OFFICE -- things in "the works" as of today's meeting:

- Continuous BETA Clothes-Drive [we need flyers, and I'll take care of an announcement once those start to circulate]

- Book Drive for Big Brothers, Big Sister Vero Beach Bookfest [I'll put up flyers next week, drop-off in Judd's and possibly, upon approval, the media center]

- MSAA Candy-Cane Fundraiser [for volunteer credit, orders will be placed soon, so that we can start in November and we have more information.]

- ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12TH, especially for those who cannot make it out the Heart Walk, the Vero Beach Book Festival, located in Downtown Vero at the Heritage Center Lawn, needs as many volunteers as possible and will certify service hours. This is a big event with literally truck-loads of books... and volunteer shifts are available from 8AM to 5PM - and even the whole day, if you can. That's 8 hours just for a day.

- AGAIN, the Heart Walk is in Tradition, 10489 SW Meeting Street, in Saint Lucie West on Saturday, November 4th, and volunteers are needed from 6AM-12AM that Saturday, as well as on Friday (on which, times and task information is pending.)

Other than that...
Remind your fellow members to bring their costumes into Judd's Room by next Friday so that administrative approval on costume-delivery is possible. Candy will be purchased via Sam's Club through Mr. Judd, myself, and possibly any other officer who's available to help pick/purchase. Calculations will be made this week.

& keep in mind the Renaissance Fair, in either February or March.
