Earlier this summer, we tipped over the 200 mark. We now have 205 proud and enthusiastic LitNet learners!
As the summer season winds down, as tutors return from summer travels and as the work schedules begin to lighten for those who have been busy in the hospitality business, which many of our learners are, the tutoring sessions will begin to pick up again. It’s back-to-school season for LitNet, too. That’s why it’s the best time of year to hold our annual celebration. I’m sure you’ve been receiving our invitations (and if you haven’t, check out the link in our News & Updates section below), so I won’t belabor the point here of how wonderful it would be to have so many LitNet supporters join us in celebration.
Instead, I’ll end this letter with a few shout-outs to regional immigrant happenings, groups, and offerings. I hope you’ll attend/view/support our immigrant neighbors in these endeavors, among others. Learning English is just one step toward the important ways immigrants enrich our community!
- The Katunemo Arts Collective recently had an exhibition at Race Brook Lodge. We hope that another is in the works!
- The Iris Residency at Mass MoCA offers time and space to immigrant artists from Western Massachusetts. The deadline to apply for 2024 is September 8.
- Festival Latino of the Berkshires will return this year on September 30. Many LitNet learners participate in some way with this fun event. We hope to see you there!
Thanks for your support!
