Tuesday, December 8: ENL / WANL Seasonal Celebration

Seasonal Celebration with WANL. It's a party! Some talking shop may occur. Also some fun!

All ENL supporters and WANL members welcome at this bash and feel free to bring along your significant other. A few carols from francophone choir La Rose des Vents, some fun & games (and maybe prizes), chitchat and festivity all on offer.
