gubernatoris latina academia mmxxii
Non Nobis Solum
We're counting down the days to Latin Academy now... EUGEPAE!!
So much stuff is going to happen at Academy. Meals, classes, activities. Trips, games, guest speakers. Roman dress, non-Roman dress, GLA t-shirts. Major events and silly little moments in the dining hall. How will we ever remember all of them?!
This sounds like a job for... MEMORANDA!
Do you like taking pictures? You can help!
Do you like sorting through pictures? You can help!
Do you have experience with video-editing? You can help!
Can you write short descriptions of Academy events? You can help!
Our job as a Memoranda team will be to take pictures every day at Academy and then use them to create video slideshows to represent all of our favorite bits of Academy. At the end of our three weeks, we will share out a Google Drive full of images and mail a DVD of our slideshows plus the performance of the play (mirabile visu!). With your help, our memories of Academy will be "more lasting than bronze!"
We'll get started more when we're all together, but in the meantime -- if you have a camera that you would use at GLA (other than the one attached to your iPhone, sorry), I encourage you to bring it along! If you don't have a camera, that's okay too, because we have a couple that we can loan out to people.
I have no doubts when I say: Academia nostra in aeternum memorabitur!
-- Magister Jefferson

You will need Roman clothing for several of our activities. You might not always have much time between these events, so you might want to bring more than one outfit.
