An Update & Some Fun, Homemade Holiday Gift Ideas

Aanii!

I hope your studying is going well!

On December 5th, we elected new positions for NASA's executive board for the upcoming semester.

The following people will be holding positions until the end of the Winter '12 semester when we hold elections again:

External Co-Chair: Forrest Cox, Junior in LS&A, Public Policy
Internal Co-Chair: Andrea Hebner, Senior in LS&A, International Studies
Treasurer: Don Wilkerson, Junior in Ross School of Business, BBA
Secretary: Rayna Caskey, Sophomore in LS&A, Sociology

Additional Positions for this semester:
Programs Chair: Michelle Saboo, Senior in LS&A, American Culture
Social Chair: Haley Mandoka, Junior in LS&A, Communications

We will resume meetings for NASA/powwow planning in January after the break. Be on the lookout for emails about meetings!

I wish you all a happy, stress-free finals week! Good luck on your exams!

Alas, I'll leave you with a list of fun, inexpensive holiday gifts that I have compiled over the past few weeks.

Also, I'm thinking the truffles (first on the list) might be a good fundraiser for NASA in February near Valentine's Day. I made my boyfriend oreo, nutella, and peanut butter truffles for Valentine's Day last year.


They were a huge hit! I spent about $15-20 on ingredients for 120 truffles last year.


I didn't intend on making so many, but I ended up with lots of extras for friends!

Similar truffles sell at chocolate shops downtown for $20 to $25 PER POUND, and people sell them at the farmer's market for 50 cents each.

Perhaps we could make some and sell them in Mason Hall? We'll see...

And finally, the list:
