This is the money we use to remember each other with cards or flowers when hospitalized or if we have a death in the family. All staff will want to contribute $10 per semester. You may give your contribution to Sunshine Chairman Ms. Jeannine Milam or Ms. Susan Rucker in the main office.
PAPER PLATES KITTY:
This is a separate account. As the name suggests, we purchase large and small paper plates, napkins, plastic eating utensils, cups, dish detergent, paper towels, etc., for monthly birthday cakes and our occasional theme lunches. All staff will want to contribute toward this fund, monetarily or with products.
Also, throughout the year, you may choose to "pay" for your meal through this fund rather than to bring a covered dish to spread at campus covered dish luncheons.
Of course, this club is set up for coffee drinkers. It costs $10 per month, and coffee is provided in the main office and in the LRC. There should be no other coffee machines on campus. If you wish to pay per cup, it costs 50 cents for a paper cupful or $1 per your own coffee mug, no thermos please!
Drinking water is provided from fountain in the main office, free of charge.
As a campus fundraiser, faculty/staff may wear blue jeans one other day of the week for only $2. Buy your blue jean fundraiser ticket from Mrs. Rucker in the main office.
