The upcoming Club Day, food handling, and the Color Dash were some of things discussed at the first meeting of the Club and Events Board (CAEB) on Jan. 27.
The Greek themed “Epic Love” club day set for Feb. 12 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. will kick off the spring semester with games, prizes, and even a kissing booth where they will be giving away condoms to raise awareness on prevention of sexually transmitted diseases.
The Student Senate will be giving away a back-to-school bag that includes a USB drive, while the Fierce club has plans to resurrect the Temple of Aphrodite.
$300 will be spent on decorations, ARC shirts, and gift certificates to the Beaver Bookstore for prizing.
Members from each club are being asked to wear togas and participate in the collaborative effort of CAEB.
Prizes in the amount of 30 dollars will be given to best toga and also the club with the most members dressed in togas.
Clubs are now allowed to purchase food that doesn’t require preparation from places other than Aramark, their normal vendor. This new allowance of third party vendors only applies to club days.
“We are inching our way towards more compromise,” said Manuel Alejandro Pẽrez, student development dean.
Club members will be given an opportunity to earn a food handling certificate at “The Lifecycle of a Food Request” workshop on Feb. 6 from 3-4:30 p.m.
This certificate will stay with the individual who earned it no matter which club they belong to, so clubs are advised to send multiple members because only people with the certificate are allowed to handle food.
The CAEB team is doing a 5k run called the Color Dash where they will be covered in powdered paint at the end of the run. The color dash will be held Feb. 28th at 11AM and will benefit children who have been a victim of domestic violence.
Resolution S15-XX, a constitutional amendment to establish a directory of sustainability position, was also read at the meeting.
This resolution to create a position for the sole purpose of ensuring that the student senate is going as green as possible must still be approved by both the CAEB and Senate boards and then placed on the ballot to be voted on by students.
“I’m very very optimistic about CAEB,” said LeslieAnn Dameron, who has been director of activities for the last two years. “We’ve grown so much. Our membership, our participation. It’s great to have a place where you feel like you’re actually doing something in college.”
