Subject: Latin Activities: Update for June 20th, 2016
Date: Mon, 20 Jun 2016 20:25:27 -0700

This email is from the LatinStudy mailing list.


For reasons of her health Sally has put her groups on an indefinite hold.
Our best wishes to Sally for a speedy recovery.

Jennifer Margrison has stepped forward and will take up the coordination
activities for the Consules group, the newest Wheelock beginners group.

If you were thinking of starting an introductory Latin group, this would
be an excellent time to start, since Consules is not very far along at all.
See below for 'Consules' for more information, including Jennifer's
contact information.
