MEMO Fall Interchapter Social 2014

Fall Interchapter Social 2014

Fall Interchapter Social 2014 at Mile Square Park

On October 18th, MEMO had its Fall Interchapter Social at Mile Square Park! There were several ridiculous ice-breaking games as well as a giant potluck, featuring amazing foods such as banh mi, carne asada fries, horchata, fried chicken, a quiche, and pumpkin brownies. Thanks to everyone for coming out and making this social really enjoyable and eventful, especially the brave new faces for investing their time to meeting the foundation of MEMO. Our next interchapter social will be held near the beginning of winter quarter and will be located in San Diego, so keep your eyes open for that.

Welcome back 8G!

After two weeks of hardwork and humidity, our mission team has returned to the US! From all their photos, statuses, and the flurry of activity in their facebook group, it’s easy to see just how much this team of dedicated volunteers was able to do in Vietnam. Congratulations on a mission accomplished. (check out the blog to hear the first hand accounts of the team!) With their return, however, marks the start of a brand new year for M.E.M.O. With everything reset back to zero, it’s time once again for our entire organization to get back to work. This year, we plan on expanding the scale and scope of our fundraising. The first part of this plan is to expand to crowdfunding. However, in order to do so, we need YOUR help.

Please share the following link to our crowdsourcing website. That way, it helps both spread the awareness of MEMO AND may even lead to some potential donations. Thank you!!

M.E.M.O. will be hosting a car wash fundraiser on Sunday, June 1st from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Spread the word and invite all your friends and family to get their cars cleaned! All cars will come out shiny and squeaky clean, guaranteed! The car wash will be entirely based off of DONATIONS, so everyone is welcome to stop by.

Volunteer Details:
This will be our last FUNdraiser of the year before we embark on our 8G mission trip! All volunteers are welcome and greatly appreciated. As this is an interchapter event, this will be a great opportunity for members to socialize with the other chapters – who said it was all work and no play? Volunteers are in no way obligated to stay for an entire shift – you may come and go whenever you please!
