MAPS is very excited to be kicking off its second year as an organization! Now that we have been established as a Horizons site, we are welcoming new members and new ideas. Petty Chen ’12 and Morgan Wagner ’12 are the fearlessly enthusiastic leaders this year. New members include Susan Cai ’13, Trudy Hall ’13, Kyanna Joseph ’13, Zia O’Neill ’13, and Joy Watts ’13.
This fall, we are looking forward to planning a few exciting fundraisers, such as a Dig Pink volleyball tournament at MHS, through the Side-Out Foundation. For more information please visit: http://www.side-out.org/about/
Our world-famous cupcakes will once again be sold on campus many times this year to help us continue micro-lending through Kiva.org , helping women to begin their own companies (for more information look at our past posts).

In the spring of 2012, we hope to encourage everyone, students and faculty alike, to participate (therefore, be sponsored by family and friends) in a Walk-O-Thon to support our micro-lending. Stay tuned for more information!
SPECIAL REPORT! Ms. Rubin, our site supervisor, will be on maternity leave until December, as she recently welcomed her baby boy, Owen Nestor Rubin, into the world on October 5, 2011 at 2AM. We are all very excited for her and can’t wait to meet him!
