Tradizioni - Fall, 2011
Dear IFAFA Members,
The deadline has arrived!!!
As all of you are aware, the 2011 IFAFA conference is right around the corner. This year, it will take place in the beautiful city of Hartford - capital of our 5th state, Connecticut (which also happens to be birthplace to a LONG list of famous celebrities and historical figures! Who knew!). Cuor d'Italia, a long-time member group of IFAFA, will be hosting the weekend events, which are scheduled to be held October 14th through the 16th.
I ask that you please book your hotel room ASAP, as the deadline for the IFAFA price block is set to expire September 14th. DO NOT HESITATE TO SIGN UP FOR THIS CONFERENCE!!! I promise it'll be worth your while to participate! Additional information can be found on page 3 and on our IFAFA website: www.ItalianFolkArtFederation.org.
Paolina Kavanagh and her group have been working tirelessly over the past year to put on a unique and wonderful experience for all participants. I encourage you to read page 4 in this copy of Tradizioni for information on all the fantastic workshops and events she and her group have planned.
I have strong hopes that I will see a large turnout for this year's event. If money is an issue, I remind you of IFAFA's Scholarship Program, which provides a $75 cash scholarship to any student under the age of 22 who takes part in the conference workshops. Make sure you take advantage of this offer!!!
Finally, if any of you out there are interested in participating further in the works of IFAFA, whether through organizational or monetary contributions, please send me an email. We're always looking for new, motivated members to add to our Executive team or Board of Directors.
Thanks, and I look forward to seeing all of you in mid-October!
