Your JASNA Syracuse Regional Coordinators and Jane Austen Book Club-CNY leader Heather Elia hope you'll mark your calendars now: A joint JASNA Syracuse/JABC-CNY holiday gathering will be held on Saturday, December 8 at noon at the Colgate Inn in Hamilton. We'll have lunch (in a private room with a roaring fire); raise a glass in honor of Jane Austen's 237th birthday (December 16, 1775); and hear JASNA Syracuse/Rochester Co-RC Lisa Brown discuss Regency Christmas customs. Christmas, of course, was one of the four Regency "Quarter Days"--a topic dear to Lisa's heart!
Lunch will be each-pays-for-him-or-herself from the Colgate Inn's lunch menu. Heather (who is making the arrangements with the Inn) will need to know by November 29 whether you can join the party, so please either email her at this address or contact JASNA Syracuse RC A. Marie Sprayberry (see "Contact Us" in the right-hand column") before that date. We hope to see you there!
