The Monday Memo: 9/26/2011


September 26, 2011                                                                           DPT Class of 2014


Calling All Volunteers!


Hopefully everyone has settled into their schedules and is ready to completely load their plate with other things! Along with SHRS, the Class of 2014 is finalizing details on a number of opportunities for people to become more involved. We’ll especially need extra help with class fundraising; more to come on that later. Other chances include the Halloween at the Children’s Hospital, SHRS Open House and more. Also, if you have your own ideas or areas you’d like for us to collectively become involved- speak up! Look out for announcements and please let your intentions be known if you’d like to assist!


In an effort to keep everyone better informed, please check out and follow us on Twitter @ PittPT (it’s a work in progress…)
