“If you build it, they will come.” This saying held true for Ray Kinsella in the movie “Field of Dreams”, and it certainly held true for us at our YPY Spring Semester Open House. After putting together a comprehensive timeline detailing YPY’s events and activities since its establishment, we chalked our invitation in classrooms across campus, made a couple of announcements before classes started, and hoped the smell of lasagna would draw people to our informal information night.
Over 25 students ended up coming to the open house, and many of them got a chance to talk with one of the many club members while they ate, before signing up for our email list and heading on their way with a couple of our pamphlets. This event was an incredible success, and I’d like to thank everyone who helped out!
So now what? Well, building on this turnout, we’ll be having our first full club meeting of the semester on Wednesday, January 23rd from 5:30-6:30pm, and you can look for a email about location as soon as we have a room booked! We’ll be doing a short presentation on what the pro-life message is and what our mission is as a club on the UVic campus. Though we won’t be doing a full dinner, we’ll provide a bunch of snacks and there will be lots of time for discussion. We’ll end by talking about some of the exciting plans that we have for this coming semester and how you can get involved with our life-saving work.
If you have any questions, or if you weren’t able to make it to the open house but would like to join our email list, just shoot us a quick message at firstname.lastname@example.org and you’ll be added so fast it’ll make your head spin. Thanks again to those who helped out, and we look forward to seeing you out on Wednesday!
