Are you interested in Spring Break with CCM?

Dear Students,

So I know most of you are probably not thinking SPRING BREAK yet, but it will be here before you know it. This coming Spring Break is March 23-March 31. That is also Holy Week (March 31 is Easter). Your Peer Ministry council and I are talking about putting together an Alternative Spring Break trip that would involve a trip to the Washington, DC, area where we would do a variety of activities involving both volunteer service as well as pilgrimage (visiting the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, as an example) and sight seeing. 

Keeping in mind that this is also the Easter holiday, and knowing many of you would have family commitments, we need to gauge the interest level to know whether we can make this a reality. To this end, I have posted a poll in our Facebook Group. The re
sults of this poll will help us to determine whether we will be putting on this trip, and how long it will be. As this is all still in the planning stages, we cannot tell you precisely how much it will cost. Our lodging will be free. The majority of activities we plan to do would be free. Our only costs would be food, and travel expenses. For the sake of this question, let's estimate for now it would cost between $100 and $150 per person (obviously more or less depending on how long the trip is). 

We are asking people to respond according to their interest in going. We are asking people to indicate if they are likely to go on the trip -- we are not asking for a firm commitment at this time. (Although do not say you are interested if you know good and well you are not likely to go). 

We'd like to know as soon as possible what the interest level is so that we can get to planning. Please follow the link below to go to this poll question on Facebook.  There is an option for not interested, and there is also an option for those who are interested in principle, but who cannot go this year (this lets us know it might be something to consider in the future).  Thanks, everyone, for your attention.
