This year's annual
NY/NJ Chapter MLA Spring dinner
will be on April 4, 2002
at the Williams Club

The Williams Club is a private club, located in the elegant historic district of Murray Hill. Housed in a brownstone since 1921 on 39th Street, the Club was organized as a place for Alumni of Williams College to socialize and use as a residence whenever they need to stay in town. It has a warm "clubby" atmosphere and is ideal for a social event such as our Spring dinner. The first floor of the Williams Club is the home to 13 portraits of historic members of the Williams College community.

Executive Chef Christopher James will prepare dinner. Your chosen entrée will be delectable, and there will be a cash bar available.

Several vendors and members have donated items to be raffled at the dinner, and each guest will receive a souvenir prepared by George Wahlert.

Musical Entertainment
Faiona Molliene Milwood, pianist and cellist, will provide musical entertainment. She is a student at New York University, where she will earn her Masters Degree in music therapy in May 2002. Faiona has performed at Carnegie Hall, and has taught music on Long Island. She is currently working in the Music Therapy Department at Beth Israel Medical Center, and plans to use her talents as a musician to help patients with pain management, asthma treatment, and outpatient treatment of chronic illnesses.

Help us welcome in the Spring season on April 4th, 2002. Cocktails will be served from 5:30 - 6:30 PM. Dinner begins at 6:30 PM till about 8:00 PM. The cost is $50.00 per person. It promises to be a charming evening.
