Dear Planning Group, Jennifer Long, our liaison from OCU, has already asked for our equipment and room needs so here is the list that I have requested thus far:
1) The Great Hall from 9 am- 9 pm
2) The room adjacent to the Great Hall for changing/ gathering/ etc.
3) Use of the Quad for a pinwheel installation and labyrinth installation for the duration of the day
4) 8 tables for the Great Hall during the origami/ anime event
5) Sponsor tables in the lounge like we had last year +a table for performers to sign in 6) University AV People to help during the event and workers capable of setting up mics, running cord, and moving furniture between 3-5
7) I also asked if they had a PA system we could use vs. Steve having to bring his own equipment (I will need exact specs from Steve) Jennifer likes the idea of us settling our needs and meeting without her and then she and I getting together to discuss. Closer to the event she will meet with all of us to make sure that we have everything we need. Dr. Meinhart has been cut to part time, but she thinks he will still be able to attend our meetings and assist as well. For Now, I need your feedback on what she can suggest to her faculty for activities for Peace Day and for ways they can connect their departments with what we are planning for 9/21 before they let out for the summer. She says the men's and women's groups will still make pinwheels, but she is not sure how we can guarantee more student interaction. She asked that we not gauge the success of our event on whether or not the OCU students participated, but to allow this tradition to grow as we are teaching them about Peace Day and they see what is going on annually. I know our enthusiasm is contagious. Please reply so I can check my new "pinwheel planning group" list. If you would like me to change your email or if I have left out anyone, please inform. Thank you everyone! I think we are already miles ahead of last year!

Carmen Suggestions: Taiko drumming from Ou,osu, uco, connecting to international student association, service programs at different universities, youth groups, oflta. Boys and girls clubs, YMCA metro tech academy, green schools. I will do that.

Having a skype with ocu interested students with Jeremy gilley the week of September 11 to promote 11 days of unity on campus. Check out we the world. I would like to have a table where kids could watch the charter of compassion and write haikus do individual art or collaborate on a mural which could be part of rdf" exhibit
