Master and Associate Master’s Report

·      Tough week for a lot of us on campus.

o   Master Near was at Silliman yesterday, and ended up moderating the interaction between the students and Master Christakis.

o   Master Near felt he saw the community turning a corner to a positive direction, and hopes that community is able to heal and find a path together.

·      Saybrook College Tea: a week from today.

o   Former Council General of the Department of Defense.

·      Getting ready for holiday preparations: more of that from SAC.

o   Aids will be decorating holiday trees.

o   Big holiday tree in the patio of the Master’s House, and we’ll have a tree-trimming study break.

o   Another tree will be in the Master’s House.

o   Will have ornaments for every Saybrook student.

o   If anyone has any other ideas, talk to Master Near or any of the aids.
