    Lunch & Language: The Philippines

    The first Lunch & Language of the year featured The Philippines. It was held on January 24th at the Louis A. Simpson Building.  The presenters were Ma. Florevel (Floe) Fusin-Wischusen with the Princeton Institute for Computational Science & Engineering and Marie Burke with the School for Public and International Affairs. Both were born and raised in the Philippines— Floe is from the Province of Iloilo and Marie is from the capital city of Manila.  The presentation started with the singing of the Philippine National Anthem titled “Lupang Hinirang” rendered by the presenters. It was followed by a discussion on the Philippine history, its pre-colonial alphabet and writing system, cultural traditions…

    Bead and Bond Event

    Crafting is the finest way to unwind during a lunch break at work. The Craft and Chat committee organized a Pandora-style bracelet event called “Bead and Bond.” The participants gathered around a table, grabbed their beads and bracelets, and got right to work. The event reminded us of all of our elementary school crafts days as we talked about color-coordinating beads and charms. Some participants crafted two or three bracelets to distribute to friends and loved ones. An hour of crafts was followed by tea, coffee, cookies, and a lovely cranberry cake. It was amazing to put a face on our members, and we all had a great time making…
