ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR CURRENT WEEK (10/05/98)
We will be having a meeting on Tuesday, October 6 at 12:15pm in a room 270. Free pizza and pop will be served. For those of you who can't make it to that meeting, another meeting will be held the next day, Wednesday, October 7 at 3:00pm in Room 170. The same topics will be discussed, so you only need to attend one of these meetings. We still need people to sign up for Auction committees. All you need to do is pick a committee that you are interested in (restaurants, bars, hotels, etc.). We will then give you a form letter and you simply fill in the names of places we are going to solicit, add a few forms, and give the letters back to us to mail out. Your help would be greatly appreciated. If you are interested in joining a committee or know someone who can donate something to the Auction, please e-mail Auction Co-Chair Heather Fritsch (hfritsch), or come to one of these meetings.

KJF has the sole mission of establishing summer fellowships for students

their summer fellowships. KJF also sponsors a public service project
TENTATIVE SCHEDULE OF MEETINGS
FOR FALL '98 SEMESTER
This year's KJF Auction is scheduled for Wednesday March 24, 1999 (2 days before Spring Break).
The KJF Auction is an annual event held each spring in which items such as weekend stays at hotels, dinners with professors, tickets to sporting events, and even airline tickets which are donated from area establishements are auctioned off to raise money for fellowships for students that work at public interest organizations over the summer. Kent students, alumni, faculty, and friends are all invited for a good time. In addition to the Auction, a wide variety of food, beer, and wine are served. Last year's auction was a great success- over $16,000 was raised for fellowship money. Recent recipients of fellowhips have worked for organizations such as Cook County's Public Guardian, Cook County State's Attorney, AIDS Legal Council, Legal Assistance Foundation, and the Environmental Protection Agency. Generally, these recipients are students who have actively participated in KJF events. If you are interested in helping out with the Auction, or other aspect of KJF, please e-mail Auction Co-Chair Heather Fritsch (hfritsch).
