Organization Name: ECC
For: May Day Contra Dance
When & Where will this Event Occur
Saturday, May 1st; 7:30pm-10:00pm
in Worsham Hall
Master Calendar Confirmation: DONE
Contra is a very organic traditional dance.
Dances are very popular in the eastern United States, most notably in
Appalachia. Some colleges in that region host weekly dances that are major
social events for students. These dances also integrate the surrounding
community into campus life. This event is being held in conjunction with the
Little Rock-based Arkansas Country Dance Society, which hosts weekly dances –
Contra and English styles. The ACDS will be bringing callers and regular
dancers to help beginners at Hendrix. Also, five experienced Hendrix students
will organize a pre-dance beginners’ workshop. ACDS usually pays musicians and
callers by charging a $5 admission, but we want this to be a free event for the
student body and community.
My name is Jose Bautista; I am currently the Treasurer of the
Hendrix Habitat for Humanity Chapter. Today, I am writing to clarify the
petition for funds for the Habitat for Humanity spring break trip to New
you know, the Hendrix Habitat for Humanity Chapter volunteered in New Orleans
from March 13, through March 20, 2010. During this time our students volunteered
from 9:00 am through 5:00 pm, with a break around 12:00pm. Today, the Hendrix Habitat for Humanity is requesting the amount of $525.00.
I will explain in detail how we came up with this amount.
In order to transport 24 Hendrix students, we had to use 7
vehicles. The following is the total amount that each driver paid during the
Trevor’s Total = 180.94 Blake’s
Total = 174.00
Matt’s Total =180.30 John’s Total = 287.57
Caitlin’s Total =286.65 Molly’s Total =119.21
Heejun Woo = 146.48
The total amount of money spent on gas = 1,375.08
funds are 1,300.00 however we can not utilize all of it because we need it to
fund two Habitat for Humanity activities for the rest of the year and before
the next Academic year.
club needs $300.00 to complete the care package program offered at the
beginning of next year. This activity is planned before the school year begins.
Therefore, it is necessary to have some money set aside since we you guys will
not be here to approve discretionary funds.
our club needs $150.00 to pay for the expenses to build in North Little Rock.
We plan to volunteer at least twice before the end of the year. We need this
money to pay for gas and for lunch for those students that volunteer.
$300.00 +$150.00 = $450.00, if we subtract this funds necessary to complete the
rest of the club’s program from the club’s current funds ($1,300.00 - $450.00 =
$850.00) we get 850.00 that we are able to allocate toward paying for gas.
you subtract 1,375.08 (gas for the trip)
850.00 (money Habitat can contribute)
The total is $ 525. 08
Humanity requests the amount of $ 525.00 to reimburse the drivers who paid for
gas during the trip. If you have any question
please contact me anytime at Bautistajj@hendrix.edu.
I am ready to answer any questions or concerns. Thank
you for your time. P.S. we have receipts to prove the money spent on gas.
