EDUCATION CELEBRATES SUMMER.  AND WEDDINGS.  AND STUFF.

MC900023323The Faculty of Education has a lot to celebrate!  Not only has summer weather finally arrived, but on July 19th, Linyuan and Michael are getting married.

Come celebrate both the arrival of summer, and Linyuan and Michael’s wedding, and maybe even your mad washer-tossing skills at a Faculty pot-luck.  There will be fine food, great conversation, and (weather permitting) a”washer” tournament, croquet, and bocce ball.

Join us at Carolyn & Jim’s House (#24613, Route 2, on left just as you come into Kensington — large two story house, chocolate milk colour with white trim) from 2:30pm-6:00pm on 19-July-2014.  Those travelling to the wedding can drop off any food before 12:30pm, all others can bring their refreshments at 2:30pm.
