An anniversary gala will be held after the talks, from 9:30-10:30 p.m.
The cost is $10.00 for those who are employed, and $5.00 for those who are
students, retired, or unemployed.  This fee includes a celebratory drink
and dessert.  We encourage everyone to sign up for the party by sending
payment to the LSA before December 30, using the annual meeting
