1) Our Voice
Looking at the next issue to come out in January when students return from X-mas break. The theme is Body Esteem and submissions will be accepted until December 28th! All articles, poetry, art work and etc is accepted. Please submit all submissions to ourvoice1@live.com.

2) Zine
Possibility of working with community zine distributors to produce a zine which would be more readily available to a greater population rather than just Nipissing and Canadore. Looking at this possibly happening in Jan-Feb.

3) Christmas Karma Bank
Funds raised will be announced at the next meeting and then donated to True Self.

4) Pride Update
At the Pride meeting on Monday events for after the holidays were discussed. Event ideas included a drag party and an activity for Valentine’s Day. The Pride bake sale is November 25th from 10-4 in the main hallway. Come make a food donation, buy some treats or help run the table.

6)      Resource Tours for Amelia Rising
The first resource tour is taking place on November 27th.
Meet at 2pm at the downtown bus terminal. The resource tours will give people an idea of the resources that are available in North Bay. This gives participants an understanding of what organizations do and the services they offer.

7)      Penny Sale
We discussed the possibility of having a penny sale after the holidays. For this event and other similar events it may be a good idea to make a list of who to contact regarding donations (which stores and organizations we generally have support from). As well if the event is after Christmas it may be a good idea to regift Christmas presents for the penny sale.
