Tonight's Meeting: On Gaza

Hello, Olives and supporters!

We here at the Olive Tree Initiative at Cal hope that you are having a wonderful week so far. And if not, well, the weekend is only a couple hours away.

On the agenda for tonight's meeting is an education session on Gaza, which will be led by one of our olives, Sydney. If you have any questions on this particular issue or have an interest in it, we encourage you to come and join us in 209 Dwinelle for the educational presentation, and the discussion afterwards.

Also to be discussed are the trip applications, which were recently released and can be found on the home page. Our president, Shannon, will be going over the different parts of the application and answering any questions about it or the trip in general. There really is no better time to get involved in the Olive Tree Initiative, especially if you have an interest in applying for the trip.

In other news, the Olive Tree Initiative is embarking on one of our educational/leadership retreats this weekend, so it will be a super fun and educational experience for those of us who are going. We rarely are able to convene as a group, so this is a special treat for members, new and old, who wish to meet new members or reconnect with old friends. Sadly, the deadline for signing up has passed, but we hope you will consider joining us at a later retreat.

We hope to see you in 209 Dwinelle tonight, and as always, we welcome new members to join us.
