  4. We are currently seeking volunteers to join the board, Libby Smith who was our Public Relations Chair has recently stepped down.  We are so grateful for all the work she has done for MAVLI over the last few years. Thank you Libby. If you are interested in the Public Relations Portfolio or in revamping our Newsletter portfolio, please contact Tania at secretary@mavli.com.  We would love to have you on board!
  5. The fundraising committee is looking for ideas, if you are aware of an opportunity for a fundraising initiative, please contact fundraising@mavli.com.

  7. Here is one for the old timers (is that politically correct?) some of you may remember the scavenger hunts that MAVLI would host in years gone by.  We were lucky enough to find an old “trophy” (toilet seat award) for the years from 1987-1992.  If any one can remember the winners from the year 1990, you can be the lucky owner of a toilet seat award!!

MAGIC OF ASL

Please see the following announcement regarding the Magic of ASL from Mandy MacDonald.
Hello MAVLI Members,

Some of you might remember ‘back in the day’ the Magic of ASL was hosted at the Deaf Centre Manitoba. It was a time to get together and enjoy ASL. We are proud to announce that it will be happening this year!

We are hoping that you the membership will consider some kind of contribution to the event. And that you will also support it by coming out and having some laughs. If you are interested in being involved please send me an email, pd@mavli.com

Thank you so much and we look forward to you being there it is going to be a FUN night!!
