I hope this email finds you safe and well. Here are the happenings in the MB&G for this week.
Remaining Fair Share - As we begin the 2nd semester, it is time for us to remember that we need your help financially.

Please look through financial statements on charms to see how much of this you still owe. You can access Charms login info by CLICKING HERE. Payments can be made through cash, check, or online. Online payments are made by CLICKING HERE. If you are having trouble accessing your account or having trouble making payments, please contact us immediately so we can help out with what we can.

They are anticipating this to have a great turn out and need all the help they can get. There are 2 shifts available - one from 2pm to 7pm and the other from 7pm to 12am. They are asking that everyone, including students and members of the board, to sign up by CLICKING HERE so they can know who and how many to anticipate.
