1. Book/bake sale
a. This week is the book/bake sale. Thanks to all those who have been helping. So far, we have made around
$200. We still have 2 days left!

b. You may bring baked goods still if you would like, through Thursday morning. There are still some time slots that
need to be filled if you would like to help with that. Either of these will count as an "event"

c. The sale is to raise money in order for the club to buy a tree for the SIUE gardens and name it chemis-tree.
Probably about 50% of the profit will go to this so our club can go "green".

d. There is a guy who is scanning our books. He works for an independent bookstore. He may be interested in
buying some of our books. We are currently talking with some professors to find out if it is even legal for us to sell
to the bookstore. It would be a good way to make money for our club, however, one of our main goals of the
book sale is to sell books to students for a very low price.
