International Festival

Thank you to all the volunteers who made this year's International Festival a tremendous success. We were pleased to have welcomed so many families.

Thank you also to those who purchased raffle tickets. More than 1,100 tickets were sold, and more than 90 baskets were awarded. For those raffle winners who were not present for the draw, don't worry—we are working to notify everyone to arrange pick-up.

Our final International Festival Committee meetings are set for Tues. April 30 and Tues. May 21, both at 09:00 in Room 1.19 MS Meeting Room on the Main Campus. The committee will celebrate the successes and discuss planning and improvements for next year. Please join us.

We still have a limited supply of International Festival t-shirts and tote Bags: €15 each. Order t-shirts and totes while supplies last.

Odyssey of the Mind

Thank you to all the amazing ASH friends and family who stopped by the Odyssey of the Mind table this weekend. We raised a whopping €530 towards our €6,500 goal, which, added to our ongoing GoFundMe project, brings us close to €2,200 so far. The kids are very happy to be a part of such a supportive and helpful community. The GoFundMe project to send the team to the World Finals in Iowa will stay open for the next few weeks, please consider us for anything you can contribute..
