|Wow, it's hard to believe that this year has finally come to an end. It really flew by, and I think it's fairly safe to say that we had a pretty good time. As the outgoing Pres, I'd like to take a moment to thank everyone for the hard work they put into making our activities this year so successful. The parties, bake sales, colloquiua, camping and conference trips were well planned and executed (for the most part), and I need to thank Amy, Sharon and Ginna for working their butts off to make things turn out as well as they did. To everyone who worked so hard on the bake sales to raise money for the group's conference travel fund, especially Allison's mom, a huge thank you!
Our group is more connected and cohesive than I ever remember it being in the past, and I hope that the dedication to each other and to our goals shown by students this year can continue into the future. I know the incoming executive have some big plans for next year, and I'm sure you will all work (and play) as hard as we did this year to make each new effort a great success.
I'm thrilled to have gotten to know everyone, and want to thank the group for making my time as MASA president something I will look back on with great fondness. I hope that each of you is able to pursue your dreams, no matter where they take you.
|THE MASA JOURNAL IS READY!!|
|The annual MASA Journal is now available. We had a limited print run on a great collection of papers this year, so get a copy while you still can. They are $10 for MASA members and $15 for non-members. You can find them on sale in Roxie's office, 435 Fletcher Argue.|
|Our final party of the year will be held at the Round Table Lounge on Pembina Hwy. on May 7th, 2004. Come one, come all for an evening of libations, billiards and darts. We plan to begin the evening around 8pm, and stay until they kick us out or we drop from exhaustion.
Plans for a summer camping trip are still in the works, so stay tuned for that as well.
