Hi COaTI folks!
Hope the session is going well for everyone. Unfortunately, we canâ€™t join
you this time around because of our big annual celebration and fundraiser
(Jamminâ€™ for Justice) on Wednesday (from 6-9 EST, youâ€™re all invited! J )
As you can see, the long hours are making us a little loopy but at least we
are getting close to raising our goal amount, which is a big relief. (This year
weâ€™re testing out a free admission policy and doing an in-person ask at the
event as opposed to selling tickets.)
The office is getting to be a madhouse--in one corner you can hear the nightâ€™s
playlist being assembled (thank god for ipods), in another you can hear our
youth practicing speeches and MC duties. The best part of the day is when
the boss goes home and the interns run downstairs to the liquor store for
â€œrefreshmentsâ€? to keep us going. (But you didnâ€™t hear that from us!)
Things are quickly coming togetherâ€”we decided to print the invitation (with
the fist) that most of you liked the best, and that same design theme has
been carried out on our printed program and awards. If anyone is interested
in seeing how our materials turned out, we can send pdfs, just drop an email
to celina at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Anyway, time to get back to work! We really wish we could be there with
everyone (and we could *definitely* use a turn on the vibrational string table
thingy right about now) but hey, at least that means more time on the table
for you guys! J
Hope everyone is having fun and be sure to keep in touch!
