Today was such a gorgeous day. Many students can be seen lying in the sun, throwing frisbees and reading under the shade. Karen and I both thought it would be great to hold a meeting today, just to recap and thank the committee team for all their hard work for Hong Kong Night and what better place to relax and talk than outside! I planned the meeting at 6 on the EMU lawn. Laying the ground with two giant towels, we prepared a platter full of strawberries, apple, cookies and lemon bars.
It was a very casual meeting. Karen and I both said our words, and addressed a few important notes regarding the culture show. We couldn't have been more proud of this years committee. Everyone did a spectacular job and we really wanted to show our appreciation. Karen introduced us to warm fuzzies, a little game where you turn to your neighbor and say something nice or thank them for something they've done. After that, I hosted a little charades game where two teams tried to act and answer the name on a piece of paper. I wrote out all the committee members names, including volunteers who I thought should be known for their contributions to HKSA.
We all had a few laughs, and shivered as the sun set. I hoped everyone walked a way feeling better about themselves and their position in HKSA. We definitely had some stressful moments during the past few weeks and today was just a good day to thank everyone for their hard work.
