         ARHS to provide special screenings for movies with pop corn, and movie snacks and DVDs (these

         movie we already would be showing and do a private screening for 6 or so people.
      o Stephanie- Police Services- lots of graffiti and some harassing events. Facebook and myspace
         becoming more and more popular with harassment, pretty quiet this weekend, for THON police

              will not cause a mass cleanup. At the end of the ceremony, we can just let the balloons go up in

              bank (Mother), but it was hard times. The deadline was Friday. I want to get paid back before
              my mother sees my account and flip before or after the pageant. Hahaha
           o Mr. Black Penn State 2008 is Saturday at the Schwab Auditorium. It starts at 7pm, but I advise
              you to get there early because it will be pack!!!!! I am ready to win 3rd, 2nd, or be the winner
