Food Organizer Signed Up: 0 / 1

This will involve arranging to purchase, pick up, then set up cupcakes for the party. We have the drinks leftover from the Spring Festival that we'll use. Ali has done a bit of pre-research to find we could use this Groupon deal, but that's should be decided by this role. We're anticipating approximately 70ish people?

Parting Gifts Signed Up: 0 / 1

This will involve deciding on, purchasing, and prepping a small gift for each graduate. Then bringing them to the party to hand out with diplomas. Some ideas: pencil cases, water bottles with their names on them, t-shirts (Dennis Crothers can help with a cute design if that's what we wanna do), bookbags. The choice is yours! Last year, the PAC committee each chipped in $20 and used that to buy food and parting gifts.

Decorating/Set-up Signed Up: 0 / 3

This will involve digging out the decorations from last year, the sail shade item, and setting stuff up before the ceremony. We can all pitch in to tear down. Nothing fancy, but creativity welcome! Caitriona may have photos from last year of the set-up that you can mimic to avoid re-inventing the wheel. Also, Bernice at SOMACC is already arranging for YBG to set up the stage and chairs in the courtyard.
