The new year is off to a fabulous start. Registration for Evening Classes is underway, and the first class offerings begin next week. There are still many wonderful classes available. Peruse the catalog and register online for these amazing classes at www.eveningclasses.org.
Up next is USN Night at Parnassus Books on Monday, Feb. 4. Parnassus will donate 10 percent of all sales between 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. to USN. Plan on grabbing a bite to eat next door at Chipotle or around the corner at Green Hills Grille, as will both donate a portion of all sales that evening to USN too.
Finally, an event not to be missed is Music Night. Mark your calendars for Saturday, Feb. 16 for an evening of fabulous food, drinks, and phenomenal music. Tickets are $125 and go on sale the week of Monday, Jan. 21.
Want to hear more about these fantastic events? Come to the next USNA Meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 16 from 8:15 to 9:15 in the Gordon Multipurpose Room.

Not surprisingly, there’s plenty to reference, and here goes, though by no means exhaustively, followed by a short wish list for your summer hiatus at the end.
