Ok, another one. But this one is just pure delight and I couldn't  
restrain myself.

We are inviting dignitaries, artists, and officers of neighboring  
universities in Maine and New Brunswick to the Science Illustration  
exhibit opening. Guess that means I have to dig out my book of manners  
and find the "how to write a proper invitation" section.

We have hired "Les Chanteurs Acadiens" (The Acadian Singers) as  
musicians for the banquet. It was a difficult decision to make because  
there are some excellent local fiddlers and guitar players from which  
to choose. Ah, the tough life of a coordinator, having to listen to  
Acadian and Cajun music as part of the job. Or is that a perk?

Our banquet dinner is Acadian, as you know. One of the great things  
about that is that the campus is green, and the Food Service will not  
only purchase food from the usual suppliers but will buy locally fresh  
produce at just the right time for optimum freshness and preparation.  
That will give some flexibility to the menu, but we can handle that,  

Lastly, if anyone is getting messages to me bounced back it might be  
because FairPoint Communications (the rural telephone company that has  
taken over from Verizon) is making the last of the equipment  
conversions. Please, if that is happening, and I have no way of  
knowing short of sending each of you a test email, be patient while I  
pester FairPoint on this end.
