New JASNA Region in NY State

JASNA Syracuse extends a warm welcome to New York State's newest JASNA region, the New York Capitol Region (which includes Albany, Saratoga Springs, and everything else in the 120XX-123XX and 128XX zipcodes).  The Capitol Region is getting off to a fast start with its first major event on June 30-July 1: a two-day Jane Austen Retreat at Wiawaka on Lake George.  Regional Coordinator Patricia A. Friesen says that attendees will make strawberry jam, embellish bonnets, watch a movie version of Emma, and discuss it the first day; on the second morning, there will be a picnic where everyone will wear their bonnets and eat the strawberry jam with scones.  If this sounds like an irresistible weekend, contact Pat at mcfriesen2[at] (substitute the @ symbol for the [at], of course), or go to the Wiawaka website for more details.
