Annual History Section Dinner

The RUSA History Section would like to invite to attend the annual dinner on Sunday, June 24th at 6:30pm at the Burma Restaurant.

You don't have to be an "active" member of the Section or even a member at all. Attending the History Section dinner is actually a good way to meet other history minded librarians.

All are welcome and don't hesitate to bring a guest.

The nearest metros are Gallery Place-Chinatown (Red, Green and Yellow lines) and Metro Center (Red, Blue and Orange lines).

Dinner will be served "family style" and will be $20.00, which includes tax and tip, menu details follow. If you are interested please RSVP, preferably by Friday June 22, to mkmannix@gmail.com
