Other news - 50th Anniversary!!

Thanks to everyone who came and joined our 50th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION!. It was a great success on all counts. Many people came from out of town, and some venerated old-timers joined us as well, including Peter Coltman, David Houston, Chuck Bryan and Nelda Drury. We had fantastic, carefully scheduled programming, wonderful live music in the evening, great Bosnian food by Dundja Mustafic, a performance of Arkan by our menfolk, and a flawless video by Misi Tsurikov and John Ramage documenting AIFD’s first 50 years. Thanks to everyone not only for participating, but for all the help everyone contributed!

We'll post pictures at http://www.anniversary.aifd.cc/ very soon.

And, if you have pictures you wish to share for free, please send them to Misi’s email at: tsurikov@mailcam.com

Also, there are a bunch of extra T-shirts, $15 each. If you’d like one for yourself, or you’re doing a bit of early Christmas shopping, please talk to a board member at Saturday night dancing.
