September Meeting

I can't seem to come up with a sensible subtitle for this picture, perhaps because I didn't attend the meeting. But anyways, the rest of the pics can be seen here.

Latin Lives Newspaper

This looks interesting, but I have no more information on it than this e-mail I received. There is apparently no online presence. It is probably written with stylus on wax.


I am the Editor-in-Chief of Latin Lives, an internationally distributed Latin-themed newspaper run entirely by high school students. Latin Lives is seeking new writers and editors for this school year, and I was wondering if it would be possible to send an advertisement to members of the Nuntia email list.

Please let me know if this would be alright. Thank you so much for your help!Yours truly,
Julie Zauzmer

Update: Julie e-mailed me with this description of Latin Lives:

Latin Lives is an entirely high-schooler-run newsletter about classical topics both ancient and in the modern world. It is published bimonthly during the school year and is distributed to classrooms in the US, Singapore, and England. If your class would like to subscribe, please let me know and I will send you more information shortly. If any of your students would like to become contributing writers, editors, or business manager, please tell them to email me as soon as possible for an application.
Thanks so much for your interest in Latin Lives!

Yours truly,
Julie Zauzmer

I've asked her to send me subscription information.

Upcoming meeting

From the Triumvirate:

The October Latin club meeting will be held on October 16th at the Van Hecke's house from 6:30 to 8 pm. We're going to play Certamen for Roman history and Latin grammar, so your warned to study up on that, but don't stress over it. We're also doing a skit. We need someone to bring a Roman like snack for this meeting. So if you could do it, please e-mail me. Also, I've been told to remind you to bring the dues for the Latin club ($10) to this meeting, if you can.
RSVP to the Gotcher's at (414)427-6972 and hope to see you there!!
Semper Fidelis,
Kate Mantyh

P.S. We're aiming to have the meetings this year on either the 2nd or 3rd Tuesday. Novembers' meeting will be on the 13th or the 20th. Please e-mail me and tell me if you could make it on one of those dates. Thanks!

Minutes - September 11th Meeting

Dead Language Latin Club
Minutes for September 11, 2007

The meeting was brought to order at 6:43 pm. Nate and Christina G, Lauren and Enan Z, Michelle B, Stephen Z and Kate M were present.

We prayed the Pater Noster. Then we sang Aufer Me Ad Areman, which was suppose to be "Take me out to the ball game" in Latin, but turned out to be "Take me to the gladiator arena."

Next we built and raced chariots; boys against girls. Even though the boys got over the finish line first *coughonfootcough*, the girls won, because of their superior design.

Last we held the business meeting. The President, Nate, gave his report and welcomed us with a hardy, "Welcome." He then told us about the Latin convention. We discussed that it would be awesome if we could get 10 or more people to go with our club. Next we talked about the future meetings and the December Party. The treasurer, Kate, then gave the report that we have the same amount of money as we did in May. Finally the meeting concluded with Mr. Gotcher giving the moderator's report. We discussed e-mails, the blog and meeting dates. We are also considering watching a Roman themed movie.

The meeting was brought to a close at 8:09 pm. Lauren provided the snack of cookies, dates, grape juice, and peanuts.
