Weekly Newsletter January 7, 2023


Welcome back! Hope everyone had a nice and relaxing break. We are less than a month away from the biggest event of the year – our annual Lunar New Year celebration!

LNY Celebration please complete survey

To help us better plan and prepare for the event, please complete this attendance intention survey by Monday 1/16/2023. It is important that you respond as this year’s venue is a lot smaller than prior years.  With advance planning, we can ensure that the event runs smoothly.

LNY Celebration volunteer needed

We still need a few helpers for the LNY celebration on 2/5/2023.  If you want to experience the LNY fun first hand, or if you haven’t had a chance to complete your parent duty, please click this SignupGenius link, scroll down to the 2/05/23 section to sign up!
