Another Event Planning Job

Meggar was in charge of the Greek Interest BBQ tonight on the campus quad. She ordered 500 hamburgers, 500 hotdogs, chips, drinks, and 300 s'mores. She told us that she ran out of food by 6:30 pm, so I would say that was a success. Luckily, Spencer helped her with the grilling (one grill needed charcoal which takes a bit more time than the propane grill). Some of his Phi Kap friends stopped by to help tease him pass the time, so I think he enjoyed himself. Meggar brought in one band and one DJ, who took songs requests from the crowd. She held a free raffle (one of the prizes was a Kindle). And she arranged four laptops so new girls could get registered for Recruitment on the spot. Her committee helped with setting up of tables, chairs, food and beachy souvenirs. They all worked the crowd by answering questions about sorority life at Truman, and they promised to keep their Greek affiliations a secret, which is why Meggar changed her name and photo on Facebook (and David and Dale were pretty confused for a week or so). She called me and sounded elated but exhausted from being on her feet from 2:00-8:00. Now it's back to real life and classes. Recruitment starts after Labor Day.
