A reminder that the annual International Women's Day Dinner
(link: http://www.iwd.uwaterloo.ca/) takes place one week from today on
Thursday, March 4 at the University Club, beginning with a reception from
4:30 to 5:30 p.m., followed by a three-course dinner at 5:30 p.m..
Reflecting the theme of women to women: making global connections, guest
speaker Carin Holroyd, a professor in the department of political science,
will talk about her volunteer work in Vietnam. I thought you'd be interested

International Gail Cuthbert Brandt is MC. Peiyi Nu, a PDT researcher from

Engineers without Borders as our guests.
Tickets are $32 and are on sale through Monday, March 1 at the Theatre
Centre Box office in Hagey Hall, open noon to 5 p.m. Mondays to Fridays, and
by telephone at ext. 84908. Menu options for gourmet meat and vegetarian
meals are listed on the IWD website, along with more details about the
