As longtime supporters know, for many years, we held a January fundraising event to support our teaching and other community activities. In recent years, we have dropped the event in favor of simply asking friends and students to donate any amount they are comfortable with, in the period between MLK Day and the end of February. If you would like to help, you can mail your donation to Gaeltacht Minnesota, P.O. Box 14964, Minneapolis, MN, 55414. (We are not an incorporated non-profit, you'll have to make your own decision about deductibility.)
Students, we'll have envelopes in class into which you can place your donations.
We'll have a table at the Landmark Center for Saint Patrick's weekend events, and we'll need volunteers to staff it. You don't need to be advanced in your language skills to be great at this, the whole point is to share your experience with learning the language.
So check your calendars, pencil us in, and we'll be signing up volunteers in the coming classes.
Head to Milwaukee the first weekend in March to polish or acquire Irish language skills. You can either attend the weekend or just Saturday. Go to this Google Doc for a registration form and agenda. Questions? Ask Bairbre at UW-M.
Our own indefatigable Maureen has recently joined the board of the Irish Music and Dance Association. The IMDA will surely benefit from Maureen's many skills, incredible diligence, and sunny disposition, just as Gaeltacht Minnesota benefits from all the work she does for us. Well done!
