Upcoming Social Committee Activities:

  1. Talent Show Sign-Up by May 25, 2021

Talent Show on May 27, 2021 12:00 – 1:00 p.m.
We hope you have been thinking about what talent you can share live at the Google Meet or via video submission.

Members will be voting for first, second and third place prizes of $150.00, $100.00 and $50.00 e-gift cards respectively (Tim Hortons, Starbucks or Amazon). Now that you’ve seen the prize amounts, are you considering a talent you have?  It can be anything from poetry, cocktail making (like in the movie Cocktail), magic show, pet tricks, baking or decorating, a physical skill, etc.
If you consider it a talent, then so do we! Show us what you’ve got; you have a couple more weeks to fine tune your skill or even learn something new to share with us. We can’t wait for the show! 

By participating in the talent show either LIVE or via video submission you give us permission to share the recordings with the MRSA Membership for voting purposes.  Videos must be submitted by 4:30 p.m. on May 25, 2021 to mrsasocial@mtroyal.ca. Live performances will be recorded during the Google Meet on May 27th 12:00 – 1:00 p.m.  All performances will be sent out to the membership for voting on May 28 – May 31.  If we do not have enough participants sign-up this contest will either be postponed or cancelled by the Social Committee.

SIGN-UP HERE (Please sign-up by May 25, 2021). 

2. Positive Notes Campaign – Month of May 2021
Since our Positive Notes Campaign was so successful in February, we have decided to do it again.  This time we will leave the submission form open for the entire month of May and messages will be sent out to the recipients throughout the month as the Social Committee has time rather than all at once. If you would like to send a positive or uplifting message to a colleague at MRU, please fill in this Positive Notes Form anytime during the month of May. Each person who sends a message or messages will have one entry into a draw at the end of the month. 
Three (3) winners will be randomly drawn for a Floral Bouquet worth $50.00 to be sent to them in June.
