Our 30th anniversary as an organization is fast approaching, so look for details
soon about the August "Subcontinental Celebration". We hope to have a Sri Lankan
cooking class, an Indian dinner, and a concert of north Indian classical music -
We have designated May as "You May Join Now" month, promoting membership in our Society, now 30 years young. At this time we have very few tangible rewards for joining, but we are working on members being able to check out books from a special collection, and membership discount cards, which we hope to distribute in June.
Your membership dues do help us capitalize our operations, and allow us to buy promotional materials and take ads when necessary. Look for membership forms in the lobby on May 5.
I hope to see many of you soon for this next cooking demonstration.
