At the start of every year, team members host a special meeting/ potluck dinner where our parents can come and watch a presentation. On October 17th, 2014 we held our parent meeting and do this mainly so they can understand how vigorous and time consuming being a member is, but also learn what we have done and what we will do in the new year. In watching the presentation, we hope that our parents will feel inspired by us. This meeting is pivotal in the success of the team because although we are environmental activists, we are students and their family members first. With the support and consent of our parents going to events is much easier. We love it when our parents get envolved and parent support is extremely important. All the members would like to thank our parents, and let them know that they are the most important members on the team, always stepping up when we need them. Thank you Team Marine parents!
