Dear Tzu Chings,
Happy New Year and welcome back! Hope everyone is having a great start so far.
To start the year, we would like to encourage you to make a difference by joining us for a vegetarian dinner on Monday, 1/11, Ethical Eating Day. Everyone can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and let’s start with baby steps! For more information, please visit our event page (https://www.facebook.com/events/834189690043704/). Don’t forget to click “going” on the event page before 5 PM tomorrow (1/10) so that we can have head counts to reserve the restaurant. Thank you!
To learn more about what we do and what new events we’re having besides Ethical Eating Day, come join us next Friday, January 15th, for our Winter GBM @Thurgood Marshall Room at 6:00 PM.
