2.  ADVANCED WILDERNESS FIRST AID COURSE:  If you are a wilderness
enthusiast or outdoor adventurer it is not too late to sign up for our
Advanced Wilderness First Aid Course. This course will be at Lake Wauburg
on December 7 and 8 from 9 am to 5 pm.  Topics include: patient
assessment, wound and burn care, environmental and biological hazards,
splinting, and much more.  Wilderness first aid is a hands-on course that
prepares you to avoid, or cope with emergencies in the wilderness.  The
University of Florida Student Health Care Center administers this class
and at the completion of the course each participant will receive a
certification card valid for 3 years.  Please feel free to call 392-1161 x
4283 if you have any questions or are interested in signing up.

3.  ISLAM ON CAMPUS:  Islam on Campus will be having a General Body
Meeting on Wednesday, December 4, at 5:30 pm in Turlington Hall L005.  We
have redefined our procedures and agendas, so no more long, boring
meetings!  Please come out and join us, everyone is welcome!
Refreshments will be provided.

4.  OFFICE OF COMMUNITY SERVICE:  Find room in your heart this holiday for
two great Office of Community Service Programs. The Office of Community
Service Holiday Canned Food Drive will be held December 9 and 10 in
Turlington Plaza and on the Reitz Union Colonnade from 9 am-3 pm. All
canned goods and dry goods will be accepted as an attempt to help feed
some very needy individuals this holiday season.  Drop by the tables next
Monday and Tuesday or the Office anytime this week or next (located in of
the Reitz Union Student Activities Center) and do your part to help.
Adopt a family is a collaborative campaign with the Gainesville Volunteer
Center. If you or your organization is willing to sponsor a family for the
holidays feel free to stop by the Office of Community Service or check
with your club president for more information.

5.  SOUNDS OF THE SEASON HOLIDAY BOOK DRIVE:  This holiday season, give
the gift of reading to a child. Many children do not have access to books
at home. They do not have a treasured, "favorite story" to read at bedtime
because their family cannot afford books. This year, you can participate
in the Holiday Book Drive for underprivileged children by donating new or
used books to Mortar Board Honor Society. Non child books can also be
donated and will go to cancer patients staying at the Winn-Dixie Hope
Lodge. Please do not give textbooks. Drop off your new and good condition
used books in the red boxes on the 3rd floor of the Reitz Union in the
Student Activity Center or at the Reitz Union information desk on the 2nd
Floor. The boxes will be collected at the end of the semester.  If you
have any questions or would like to be more involved, please contact
Elizabeth Denlinger at [log in to unmask]

6.  LITERACY CELEBRATION:  The Student Reading Council is seeking
volunteers to help out at their Literacy Celebration in honor of
Children's Literacy Week.  We need people to read books to the Foster
Elementary After-school program students (Head Start to 5th Grade).  We
will supply books if you need them, or you can bring your own.  We are
having the celebration at Foster from 3 to 5 pm on Friday, December 6.
We will be reading to the kids from 3:30 to 4:15 and will then celebrate
with cake and treats.  Each student will receive bookmarks and coupons
from various local businesses.  We are really hoping to get a great turn
out for an incredible event.  Please contact Mihija or Stevie at
