JCS End of the Year Cookout 2011

Posted on Monday May 16, 2011 at 1:30am in ,

Friday was the day of the last JCS event of the year. Traditionally, the last event we hold in the spring is a cookout, followed by elections for new officers. Thankfully, the weather (somewhat) cooperated and we were able to follow tradition. Yuki, Kyoko and I went shopping between classes to get all of the stuff for cooking out and then at 6:30 we got the show on the road. Here are some pictures from the last JCS event of the year!

Great turnout! (Even though it was cold)

Brian made a great hamburger model.

After we had eaten most of the food we had, we decided to head inside to the conference room for the elections (it was getting cold out). The conference room was nice because everyone could sit down at the same table and focus on the elections. Also, there was a white-board. We got a cake and Kyoko wrote on it:

It means “Thanks for your hard work, JCS.”

At the end of the year, all of the officer positions end and elections have to be held again. I was running for president this time.

And the results were…. drumroll

I won the presidency! I’m now the president of JCS. I have been treasurer for three years and I will really miss that (it will be strange to not know exactly how much money JCS has anymore). But, more important than a treasurer, JCS needs a leader with a lot of experience (especially with the folk fair) for next semester. Yuki won the co-treasurer position so she will continue to be treasurer with Kelsey. Kyoko is now the Vice-President, and Minori and Emelia are the new secretaries. Already I am excited for next semester’s JCS events to begin!

By the way, if you want to see the rest of the photos, all of them are online on the JCS website, here.
