ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR CURRENT WEEK (11/16/98)
THE TOILETRIES DRIVE HAS STARTED. Please drop off your items in the box near the security desk on the first floor. Please donate items such as: soap, shampoo, razors, toilet paper, lotions, toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc. These are much-needed items that people often forget to donate. We will take the donated items to local women's shelters. Remember that any items at all that you are able to donate will be very appreciated by the shelters and the women!
Back by popular demand, KJF will once again be selling those great-looking KENT LAW T-SHIRTS on November 17th, 18th, and 19th (this Tuesday-Thursday). Buy yours now or you'll be waiting a whole year for another chance. If you would like to help sit at the table to sell the shirts, please sign up for a time slot on the sign-up list posted on the KJF bulletin board on the concourse or e-mail Adam Weber (aweber). The money raised from the t-shirt sale will help fund the Auction in the spring.
The DUE DATE FOR THE AUCTION LETTER DRIVE is this Wednesday,
November 18th. Please turn your letters and envelopes in to the SOS
office (ROOM 686) anytime on Wednesday. Also be sure to notify your
committee chair of any changes or problems with your donor lists.
Thanks to everyone who volunteered their time on this drive!

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, which was sponsored by Sam Adams, a wide variety of food, beer, and wine are served. Last year's auction was a great success- hundreds of people attended and 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).
