April 15, 2014 (Vol. 20, No. 8) Opportunities For Enrichment.

Local REFORMA Chapter Support

Join us on Thursday April 17, from 12:30 to 2 p.m., during the OLA conference. We will get together at lunch time to discuss the creation of a new chapter of REFORMA in Oregon.

Look for a sign with the word REFORMA in the lobby of the Salem convention center (near the registration table) where we can get together and walk to a nearby restaurant. If any of you knows of a place to have something to eat and talk, just let us know. Have a great week. Nos vemos, -Martin Blasco
