Viterbo University will be putting on the play “Proof”, which the new movie is based on and we are going there as a club. It will cost about $7-9 depending on how many people go, we will each have to pay for ourselves. The performances are Nov. 10-12, 17-19 at 7:30pm (except on Sundays its earlier afternoon). We will probably leave Winona about 6:30ish. We will send out an e-mail with a more definite date. The sign-up will be in the math/stat office.
T-shirts! We will be re-ordering the polo shirts from last year with the professional logo, but we will have them in purple this time (maybe different colors as well?). Our new shirt for the year will be brown with cream pictures/font. It will have a picture of Gildemeister on the front and say “3rd floor Gildemeister” above the picture and “WSU Math/Stat Club” below. On the back of the shirts there will be a quote that says “There are 3 types of people in this world – those who can count and those who can’t.” We will put sign-up sheets in the math/stat office and send out an e-mail with prices soon.
Amanda Lamers has been named as our new treasurer! Let’s hope she keeps track of ALL that money well. J
Amanda and Chelsie will be updating bulletin board, so it will be all pretty-like!
Dr. Malone has been voted e-Professor of the year, so if you see him, you should e-congratulate him.
