WHAT S AHEAD FOR ALRI?
WELCOME NEW MEMBERS
ALRI’s newest 90 members – those who have joined since mid-September 2006 – are invited to the New Members' Social Friday, May 11, 2
5 pm., in the Monticello Room of The Jef-
ferson. The reception offers an opportunity for you to meet other members including those serving on the board and to learn more about ALRI and its activities. This will be ALRI’s third social at The Jefferson. The first one was held in March 2006, the second in November 2006.
You’ll find the list of ALRI’s newest members on Page 4.
ATTEND JUNE MEETING
All ALRI members are invited to ALRI’s annual meeting Friday, June 8, in Room 329, George Mason University. Come for re- freshments at 9a.m.; the meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. New officers will be chosen at the meeting. An all-member mailing later in May will list the proposed slate of officers, provide further information on the meeting and election, and include a ballot. Those unable to attend may vote absentee. President John Sprott will give a “state of ALRI” message, and treasurer Henry Brown will give the financial report. Board members will lead attendees in an exploration of topics
that will help ALRI as it develops programs to meet members’ needs and expectations. There will be plenty of time to ask questions, meet the new and old board members, learn about future ARLI events and programs, and socialize.
CELEBRATE FIFTH ANNIVERSARY
ALRI will celebrate its fifth anni- versary with an open house September 29 (venue to be deter- mined). We have a very talented and inter- esting membership and would like to use the celebration as an oppor- tunity to exhibit some of your art- work and writings. Space may be limited but let us know if you are interested in sharing your creative works. We also hope to develop and act out some sketches spoofing ALRI and plan to have a roving interviewer with whom you can share your ALRI experiences, plus music, sa- vory eats and more. Arrangements are in the initial planning stages, and we can use a lot of help. Please contact Sharon Bisdee – email@example.com or Jeanne Sprott – firstname.lastname@example.org – by June 8 if you are interested in sharing your artwork and/or volunteering to work on the Fifth Anniversary Committee. It should be lots of fun!
