Purim shares some rituals with the American Halloween and the Irish
St. Patrick's day.  Saturday, March 18, we'll be celebrating with a big
party and giving away prizes for outrageous, creative, attractive, and
unique costumes.  The crowd will judge.  We'll provide food (hamantashen
and munchies), non-alcoholic beverages, and a limited amount of alcoholic
beverages.  You are welcomed to bring food and beverage.  Volunteers are
always needed.  Please let us know if you can assist.

Costs:

Members - $2 with RSVP by 3/12 ($5 without RSVP and after 3/12)

Non-members and other guests -$5 with RSVP by 3/12 ($7 after 3/12 and at
the door)

Purim is the traditional holiday where people give gifts (Chanukah wasn't
the first). It is also the holiday of excess, cleverness, and
silliness.  A major theme of the holiday is that you should be so 'drunk'
so as not to know the difference between "Blessed be Mordechai" and
"Cursed be Haman."  How to achieve the appropriate level of drunkenness is
up to you. Some choose to become drunken with song, others with
dancing.  Others may choose an easier route.  It is all up to you.

2. Sun. March 26, 1:30 PM, Carolina Hurricanes Hockey

----------------------------
For more info, or to RSVP
contact: Erika <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> 
----------------------------

Now is your chance to come see the Carolina Hurricanes at the new
arena!  Come cheer on the Hurricanes (or the NY Islanders) on March 26 for
an afternoon of hockey.  If we're really lucky, the players will break out
into a fight and some teeth will be lost. The game is at 1:30 p.m..

Tickets are just $16 and include a hot dog and a drink.  Here's the
rub: you must RSVP by March 24 and this includes sending a check (one that
will actually clear, please) to Erika.  If you don't RSVP with a check to
Erika by March 24th, your ticket will be more expensive and you won't be
sitting with the group.  It's ok!  You can commit!  Don't delay; send your
check now.
