Joe would like to thank everyone for the many gifts that he has received from students in previous year at year's end. However, this year, he wanted to make a suggestion that breaks with tradition. The Salle Saint-Georges/Center for Traditional Arts has invested a lot into their new space. Instead of individual presents, Joe has suggested for those inclined to make a donation to the SSG/CTA this year instead. Joe himself will be making a donation of $25 but, if we can all chip in any amount great or small, this will help greatly with establishing a beautiful space for classical fencing and other classical arts in our part of the world. As with all payments, please present in class in an appropriately marked envelope to Joe or one of the officers. Alternatively, Interac eTransfer is a possibility as well. Please consider this.
Wishing everyone a restful winter break.
