Upcoming Events

Geek Jewelry Making

When: Saturday, December 2,2011

Where: Need to Bead
This event was everyone's favorite last year. Make resistor/capacitor/LED earrings for scholarship recipients, yourself, or for Christmas presents! I'll bring geekly goodies for you to use, but you buy your own findings (chains, earring parts...). While we're there, we will have a group instructor to ask for advice. Please contact Tiffany Greyson, the Scholarship Chair, for more information (tiffany.greyson@hp.com)

There are many other activities that the Scholarship Committee needs help with including: calling Idaho businesses for scholarship donations (Nov and Dec), recipient application reading and selction (March), and awards ceremony preparation (April). If you would like to be involved in any of these activities, please contact Tiffany Greyson (tiffany.greyson@hp.com)
