* In attendance, Kerry, Heather Laszlo, Heather Starr, Rebekah, Kristen, Al, Jeremy (formerly affiliated with Villanova), Christine, Josh, Ian * All Hub members are reminded to get a chair for the Arts Cafe. There are tentative plans to go together to an auction house or warehouse on November 1, at around 2:00 PM. We will need to get some kind of pick-up truck to transport the chairs. * Duties and the schedule for the Grand Re-Opening of the House were discussed. The schedule for the opening to be held December11 follows: From 12-4PM: a "marathon reading" and singer/songwriter performances 5-5:30PM: live music as invited guests arrive 5:30PM: ceremony/dedication with some light music; presentation of a gift to Paul Kelly 6-6:30PM: a brief tour of the house 6:30PM: dinner is served 8:00PM: people start arriving for the open party; Jazz Band may play * Other suggestions for the day of the Opening: * the creation of a time-capsule * a special lunch for Penn staff members that are members of WH * a "guest book" made out of craft paper * The money left over from the sound equipment budget is going to go towards chapbook making equipment/supplies. * It seems that due to building codes and space restrictions, it isn't possible at present to have a printing press/small-letter press at the House. Only the basement has a strong-enough floor and there's no way to get a press down the stairs. * Planning is going to begin soon for a book-making summer conference. * Anyone that can help out with move-in on Monday morning, come by between 9 and 12. * A list is being compiled of faculty members who might be interested in the House and to whom we will give invitations for the grand opening. * Jeremy introduced a d'magazine, which is a literary magazine in print form that is based in Manyunk. He also, mentioned asked that anyone interested in planning a Philly-area Inter-Collegiate Literary Conference should contact him. * Whitney says that the invitations for grand opening will need to be sent out by November 9. So between November 3 and November 9, we will be busy stuffing envelopes, etc. * As usual, I urge you all to check out XConnect.
