HOLIDAYS OF ‘08 from LDI Casting

From Anne Mulhall of LDI Casting:

JANUARY 2009:

On-Camera Classes for ADULTS, TEENS AND KIDS. The website has the details about the classes – www.ldicasting.net/classes:

Teens On-Camera Class – Saturdays 1:30-3:30pm – beginning January 17
Kids On-Camera Class – Saturdays 11am-1pm – beginning January 17
Adult On-Camera Class – Tuesdays 6:30p-8:30p – beginning January 20

**We’ll also be offering some 1-day workshops and 3-hour Intro classes, dates to come.

DECEMBER 14 – SUNDAY 2pm – 4pm:A small holiday open house is scheduled. I realize the holidays are a difficult time to plan events – but if you have time to stop in – even just to say hello – we’d love to see you. Light refreshments.

LDI offices, 1 Center Place, Providence, RI 02903

If you do stop by, please consider bringing either non-perishable food items for RI FOOD BANK. And/or Care package items for soldiers. I think it will be a nice idea to send some stuff to them. Bring 1 or more items and we’ll create some care packages to send over. The list of wish list items is attached to this email.

Also – when you’re sending holiday cards this year – please include this address when you do:

A Recovering American Soldier
c/o Walter Reed Army Medical Center
6900 Georgia Avenue,NW
Washington,D.C. 20307-5001

JANUARY MIXER:

The January Mixer mentioned in the last email notice is scheduled for Sunday – January 25 2pm – 4pm. Our guest speaker is still TBD.

The location is: KAY STUDIOS, 66 Valley Street, East Providence, RI
www.kaystudiosri.com (for directions)

Light refreshments will be offered, $15/person, (the cost for these mixers is tax-deductible.) As I’ve mentioned, these mixers will be a monthly occurrence. If you have a subject you’d like to hear more about, please let me know.

*This speaker does not necessarily need to be limited to acting – Could be a politician, an accountant, an author and the like.

Please keep in mind that all food items must be in the manufacturer’s original packaging.
NO chocolate - 110 degree heat and chocolate do not mix well, though M&M’s are fine.
Ziploc bags make sure that potentially leaky items don’t make a mess during shipping, and service members use them to keep sand out of their things while in the desert. IT’D BE GREAT IF YOU CAN BRING A BOX TOO! We’ll need to package them up.

We’ll need some volunteers that following week to help package the boxes for mailing. Please let me know right away if you are interested in that.

This is not an RIFC Production
