Christmas Tree Decorating and IAC General Board Meeting

Dear All!

We are going to meet on Sunday November 4th at 2PM at the Museum of Science and Industry to decorate our Christmas Tree followed by our annual IAC General Meeting. This is an election year so we hope to see a lot of you in holiday spirit, willing and ready to work on the board and keep our association strong.

We plan on starting the meeting around 2:30 PM in the cafeteria at the Museum. Please make sure to sign up with Lena by email at koshkuklo@icloud.com or message her on Facebook for instructions re: museum entrance and parking and any items you want included in the meeting’s agenda. Einar will email a formal agenda closer to the date of the meeting but the usual suspects for discussion, review and decisions will be þorrablót 2019, financial report, the scholarship fund, the website, Fron, etc.

Cheers!
Lena & Einar
