Should residents be removed from the mailing list automatically? Some Ashdown alumni like to continue to receive Ashdown mail. Automatic removal generates more paperwork. We will put a note in with the front desk to email ashdown-ops to ask to be removed. Front desk cannot be removed.
Calendar draft passed out. Suggestion given. As soon as all the items finaalized, Dheera will get it printed.
September 10th special coffee hour, open to the public. No special theme, just more food. (Theme coffee hours for the fall include: Diwaili, Halloween, Bubble Tea and Residential Scholars). We will put out signs will ask people that food is for eating there. Dheera will make a standing sign. Archana needs to be re-added as an ashdown admin.
IKEA. cowandduck.com is running a trip to Ikea similar to ours, but we will still be running Ikea busses. Priority will be for ``new'' students only, we will define ``new'' as anyone who newly moved into Ashdown or reassigned to Ashdown in the continuing lottery.
Ashdown reuable bags have arrived. They will be passed out with new doortags, and notice will be sent out to pick up both your bag and nametag.
Yard Sale. Any grad student (plus members of Pheonix House) can sell, and any MIT community member can buy.
Proposal: Once per month, all public whiteboards get erased (approved by consensus).
Now "Seven Deserts Dessert Night".
Ashdown can take an outdoor screen and we can borrow the screen, but not the projector. Soliton: We could talk with S-P housemasters, or have an S-P perosn present. Projectors like S-Ps range from $1000-$3000. To sidestep copyright, we will have an education compenent, keep event in Hulsizer and not promote title of the movie. We will look into outdoor movies later.
