Students discuss this semester’s community service projects

Parker Willis

An upcoming Retro-dance party was the focus of the Feb 8 Campus Activities Board meeting.

The Board met upstairs in the Billingsly Student Center. The meeting started out with a ballot vote on what the members thought would be the best idea for community service.

The options were the Lafayette House, adopt-a-highway, the Humane Society and the Boys and Girls Club.

Lafayette house and Boys and Girls Club got the most votes.

Graham Dickinson, CAB vice president, said the Board will discuss the final decision in its next meeting on Wednesday.

The Board will have a full-member meeting instead of just an officers meeting originally planned because the Retro Dance party is on Thursday.

After the vote the Board looked at new ideas for a CAB logo that a new member had already drawn up. The Board discussed what it liked and didn’t like about the logos and will vote on a final decision at a later time.

Then the Board divided into three groups to assign responsibilities for the upcoming dance.

Hector Amaya, CAB historian, and Terri Levy’s, CAB treasurer, group discussed the contests and the refreshments that will be at the dance.

There will be a first, second and third place prize for each of the dress categories of 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. There will also be a Dance-Dance Revolution contest, a break dancing contest and a disco dance off.

Prizes include gift cards to Target and Wal-Mart, best of the decade CDs and other various prizes.

Tori Maloukis, director of student activities, said she is also offering a “groovy prize” for the campus organization with the most members present at the dance.

The dance will also feature favorite candies of the past like candy cigarettes, Fun Dip, Now and Laters and other various candy from “back in the day.”

The Board also discussed how it would advertise for the dance.

The ideas included fliers, balloons, slap bracelets and having members dress in thier retro gear on the day of the dance.

The dance will be from 7-11 p.m. in the Connor Ballroom on Thursday.
