President - Chelsey Spencer
Vice President - David Broussard
Secretary - Sara Wood
Communications Officer - Lisa Raney

And now for some updates ... theSLIS Student Banquet is tonight at 6pm! We hope to see you there dressed up in your finest.

Also, the LISSO End of Year Banquet is tomorrow, April 24th at Kirklevington Park from 2-4. We hope you can make it out, rain or shine. Alternate rain plans are in the mix, and we still intend to meet at the Park at 2 and go from there. Hope you can make it out.

In the works is a tentative last event of the semester, to tour the KUSI Storage Facility ("Book Caves") in Wilmore, KY on Wednesday, April 28. More information will be disseminated via this blog and UK e-mail with details as the trip is finalized.

Upcoming Events
-Picnic will be held Saturday, April 24th at Kirklevington Park. LISSO will provide burgers, hot dogs, vegetarian options, sodas, and condiments. Please bring side items, desserts, or games. We will meet at the park at 2:00, and if it rains, we will take the party elsewhere! Possibly to Anne's house or a restaurant.
-Trip to the Caves will be on Wednesday, April 28th. The tour is tentatively scheduled for 3:30 p.m. To carpool, meet at 2:45 p.m. with location and drivers TBD. People can also choose to meet the group at the Caves.
-We discussed opinions on events held this semester. Positives were varying schedule of events to accommodate more people and a nice mix of local, Lexington places were visited. Would like more variety in events; Chris suggested Art Gallery tours; David brought suggestion from fellow student for want of a night on the town. Discussed events during the summer, such as Fourth of July festival, that Lexington holds if LISSO is interested. Other events mentioned were Thriller Festival in the fall, Legends games.
-Chris suggested LISSO put on an orientation in the fall to show building, campus, and get the word out about LISSO. To do so, we will need email list for new students in the summer and fall. Chris will also "be around" Lexington as a contact for new LISSO officers if they have questions.

Hi everyone,

First of all, we hope you're enjoying the spring weather as this semester comes to a close. It's been simply gorgeous outside.

Now, for some reminders. Tonight, LISSO will be hosting its final Friday at Five of the semester is today, April 16th at Charlie Brown's which is located at 816 E. Euclid between Ashland and E. High St.

Charlie Brown's is a cozy little bar/restaurant with a very unique vibe. It's been described as akin to a "library in someone's basement." And the free jukebox plays nothing but hits from the 50s and 60s. So come out and have a drink, sandwich, or just to socialize. All SLIS students, staff, and faculty are welcome!

We also will be having our last meeting of the semester this coming Wednesday, April 21 at 5pm in the SLIS Student Lounge. We will be discussing year end events, past events, the transferring of LISSO leadership for the 2010-11 school year, and various odds and ends.

We hope you can make it out!
