Weekly Update: November 11, 2018
Greetings, Fellow Federationists,
I want to offer my sincere thanks to everyone who has pre-registered for convention and to all those who are working to bring this event together. We’ll be meeting in just five days, and—in addition to being nervous—I’m getting excited! If you haven’t booked your room or pre-registered, and you are still looking to do so, please email me as soon as possible.
A few reminders as the convention approaches:
The bake auction is one of our largest fundraisers, and we need your help to make it a success. If you want to contribute homemade food to the bake auction, be it baked goods, home-canned foods, snack mixes, or something else, you have just a few days left to prepare.
You should bring your offering to the bake auction table on Saturday morning, but even before you do that, you should contact Charlotte Czarnekki, bake auction coordinator, and tell her what you’re planning to bring. We will also find it extremely helpful if you place a Braille label on your item describing what it is, and—particularly necessary this year—if your item contains nuts.
If you have door prizes to contribute, you can bring them to the door prize table before the start of general session. This year promises to have a good selection of prizes for you to win, but only if you’re in the room.
Aira, who is sponsoring our convention, is designating our hotel as a site access location, which means anyone, whether they are a subscriber or not, can use Aira for free while at the hotel. If you are interested in trying the service, I encourage you to download the Aira app on your iPhone and give it a shot. We appreciate Aira for their sponsorship and for making the service available to all in attendance at our convention.
I look forward to seeing you all in just a few short days. This is going to be a great convention.
