The calendar above indicates the noon programs that are planned for the year. At this time I
have confirmation on just one of the programs:
Nov. 5 (French program): Professor Ted Johnson (Univ. of Kansas) will speak on "he French Autumn: images, music, and poetry".
Descriptions of other programs will appear in the newsletter when received.
On the 22nd of October the advanced French group "Café" met with a new teacher - Tim Freiermuth - who has an MA in French instruction and experience with high school/university-level instruction in America and France . In the first meeting with him our dialog was animated, informative and refreshing. He is seeking full-time employment and hopefully can get released time to continue with us as moderator of the "Café" group.
On Oct. 8, Marty Shaffer gave the following update on Constanza who taught Spanish conversation last year: she was to move this past weekend from an assisted living home to the home of her niece. Constanza's sister is here from Colombia and in all liklihood will be taking Constanza to Colombia by the end of October. I'm not sure but think that may be a permanent move.
In case you did not know, all the LaCauserie officers are volunteers—only the instructors are
paid. Therefore, in order to keep LaCauserie running smoothly, we need individuals to step
forward periodically to help out with running the organization. Usually the transition occurs in
May at the end of the school year. However this year, yours truly, the Assistant Secretary/Newsletter Editor is looking for a replacement/helper now because of health reasons.
If you would be willing to take on some of the newsletter responsibilities, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org or 252-0687), to let me know. Keep in mind that other volunteers will be needed from May on for other officer positions.
Please sign up to bring cookies, set up coffee and/or clean up our hospitality area on class days. See sign up sheet in the Fireside Lounge.
