[saro_events] Kick-Off meeting, Farm Sanctuary visit,

Welcome back everyone!

Volunteers needed for SU Involvement Fair Table
The SU Student Activity Fair is a great way to reach out to incoming freshmen.
SARO will have a table there and we need some help staffing it. We will have a
table with our email sign-up sheet, fliers about our meetings, and free
stickers and literature for people to pick up. Email Amber at
if you can help out for any part of the fair.
When: Wednesday, September 11th from 11:30-3pm
Where: Syracuse University quad

Day Trip visit to Farm Sanctuary
We will carpool down to visit the rescued animals at Farm Sanctuary in
beautiful Watkins Glen, NY. $15 per person covers gas/tolls and admission, and
SARO funds will cover the rest. Snacks and microwaveable meals are for sale in
the gift shop, but bringing a bag lunch is recommended. . Wear boots or
sneakers for muddy areas on the farm. Information on the sanctuary can be
found here: Email alcoon (at) to reserve your
seat or if you have a vehicle and would like to help the carpool.
When: Saturday, September 14th.
Carpool: leaves ESF campus at 9am, returns at 6pm. Meet at the statue of Abe
Lincoln next to Illick Hall on SUNY ESF for the carpool.

SARO Kick-Off Meeting
This meeting will be an introduction to SARO, what the club has done in the
past, and possibilities for future events. We will also be looking to get
everyone signed up for a shift at the table in Marshall Foyer to recruit new
members or hold a bakesale.
When: Wednesday, September 11th from 7-8pm
Where: TBD- awaiting room reservation confirmation

Foster home needed for rescued cats
Because adoption rates are so slow at this time, especially for adult cats,
the Cat Coalition of Central New York is seeking temporary foster homes for
cats in their care to give them a rest from ‘shelter life’. If you or someone
you know has an apartment, and the time to care for a cat(or a pair!), email
alcoon (at) if you are able to help one of these guys. Food and
litter box etc can be supplied if needed.
