GSCWO Meeting October 19, 2006
AV Room Hosch Library
The GSCWO held its meeting on 10/19/06 in the AV
room of the Hosch Library. Members present were: Sloan Jones, Beth
Wheeler, Allison Ainsworth, Teresa Leckie, Margaret Bailey, Dean
Lieburn, Chaudron Gille, Leora Myers, Rebecca Homan, Gail Emmett, Mary
Lou Frank, Tricia Bunker, Rynda Ellis, Nicole Krochak, and Linnea Haag.
Guests: Monika Chytra, Jeanne Nash, Heaseon
Whang, Michelle Brown.
The GSCWO members were welcomed by Tricia Bunker.
There were no September minutes read as we did not have a formal
meeting. Instead, several ladies attended the “Yellow Daisy Festival”
at Stone Mountain Park.
Linnea Haag then reported that currently the GSCWO
had 46 paid members. This number was in contrast to 58 members in
2005. We have no members from the Oconee Campus; this may account for
fewer members in 2006.
Nicole Krochak gave the Treasurer’s report. We
have received $210 from dues and have spent $549.69 on retirement gifts,
a cake and refinishing some silver items.
Tricia Bunker reported on the Planning and Program
Committee. The January meeting will be a talk on learning to sell on
eBay by our own Dr. Mary Lou Frank. It will be a brown bag lunch in the
Library AV room with a link to Oconee. For February, we will plan a
Valentine’s potluck. Rynda is working on plans for later in the spring.
Leora Myers is the chair of the Christmas
Luncheon, Auction and Holiday Sing. Her committee is composed of: Jana
Albertson, Cara Skeat, Melissa Gooch, Dru Thomas, Kim Campbell, Alvanita
Negron, Nicole Krochak, Lysa Gaddis, Molly Potts, Debbie Pilgrim, Sloan
Jones and Tricia Bunker. The name of this year’s luncheon is “Visions of
Sugar Plums” and it will be held on December 1, 2006 (Friday) in the
gymnasium on campus. A new idea for the fund raiser will be a gift
theme basket submitted by each division, department, organization or
individual. The gift baskets will be auctioned off in addition to the
regular handmade and new auction items. A list of helpful suggestions
has been created for these baskets. There will also be a $1 vote
competition between the submitted baskets, with the winning basket
creators receiving bragging rights for the next year.
A special recognition of Past Presidents was made,
complete with a list posted on the wall. A gift of appreciation was
presented to the attending Past Presidents: Allison Ainsworth, Leora
Myers, Rebecca Homan, and Sloan Jones.
The Door Prize was won by Rebecca Homan. The next
meeting will be in the President’s Office with a Pot Luck Lunch on
November 8, 2006.
Linnea Haag, Secretary
