Information Literacy Roundtable
Annual ILR Meeting/Picnic -
Friday, June 20
Calling all ILR members! Please join us for our last meeting of the year, at Hawk Island County Park, 1601 E. Cavanaugh St., in south Lansing, MI. The 'business' portion of the meeting will begin at 11:00, with lunch and fun to follow. ILR board members and friends will bring stuff to grill, beverages, sides, dessert, utensils, etc. All you need to bring is yourself...kids and significant others are welcome too! (If you want to bring a dish to pass, please do).
Directions and a map of the park can be found here. We will congregate in the Peregrine shelter, side A.
If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Angie Kelleher - firstname.lastname@example.org, so that we can get a head count. Hope to see you there!
