Halloween! Bake Sale and Party

We're having our first bake sale this Wednesday, Oct.28, 9:20am-3pm in the Clearihue lobby. Any goodies you can bring will be much appreciated, and if you can spare an hour or so to watch the table, please sign up here: Money raised goes toward the Underlings scholarship fund. (If you're able to bring an ingredient list with your baking that would be helpful -- for people with allergies, etc.)

Also at the bake sale you can get tickets for the Halloween Party! It will be this Friday, Oct.30, starting around /7pm at my place in James Bay (also known as the LinguaLounge). Address/directions/parking instructions will be on the tickets. Snacks will be provided, but please bring your own drinks. You must come in costume!! There will be prizes for costumes, IPA Twister, and Pin-the-segment-on-the-IPA-chart. (There's also a facebook event if you like that sort of thing:

Happy Halloween!
