On December 3rd GALA hosted our annual Holiday Social at Slice & Pint in Emory Village. Approximately 40 alums, students and guests were on hand for fellowship and conversation to mark the end of our 2014 social calendar. A special display of heavy appetizers was served along with favorite alcoholic beverages and soft drinks. We were given a special section of the restaurant, and the party was truly enjoyed by all.
Coming up on April 2, 2015, is our annual Theater Outing at Actors Express in the King Plow Arts Center. “Marcus; or the Secret of Sweet” is a LGBT themed work by Tarell Alvin McCraney. The theme is the story of a 16 year old coming to grips with his sexual identity. Looking back at his family is the key to understanding his future.
GALA will host a Wine and Cheese reception beginning at 6:30 PM. The curtain goes up at 8:00 PM, and since our party is there when the doors open, we usually can get a block of great seats. So mark your calendar for a great evening of theater and fun with your fellow GALA members and guests. You can register here.
New in 2015, our monthly Steering Committee meetings now feature a social hour from 6:00 to 6:30 PM. We are serving dinner with new food items, and the meeting now begins at 6:30 PM. Some are bringing wine to liven up the party, so come join us at the Miller-Ward House the second Tuesday of each month. All GALA members are welcome to participate in the Steering Committee.
