10 Mar Rake & Run/Smoking Ban Canvassing
Nine members, four other individuals and the faculty sponsor went into neighborhoods next to the university and raked elderly people’s lawns. If the homeowner was available they were told a little about Eta Sigma Gamma and the chapter’s goals. In addition to raking people’s lawns members also tried to gain support for the statewide smoking ban (the election was three days later). The American Cancer Society asked for support and assistance in getting the word out. Chapter members talked to homeowners and passed out flyers giving information about the two smoking bans on the ballot. The event and interviews were covered by both Channel 11 (CBS) and Channel 13 (ABC) news stations.
