Interest Meeting & Goodie Bags for Orphans

Happy new year, members of Carpe Futurum! We hope you’re ready for another exciting year of fighting the dark arts of the real world with Dumbledore’s Army here in Northern Virginia.

And we hope you’ll be able to join us for our 2012 interest meeting & first event on January 21. We will discuss projects we’d like to undertake while assembling goodie bags for the Orphan Foundation of America. The OFA sends these treats to young adults who have aged out of the system and have beaten the odds to make it to college. It gives them an extra sugar rush while doing classwork and lets them know there are people out there who care about their futures (we wish Harry had had that sort of message while growing up). This year, the OFA is sending Valentine’s Day themed care packages. Given that part of the Harry Potter Alliance’s logo is a heart, what could be more perfect?

Date: January 21, 2012
Time: 2:30 – 5:00 PM
Location: Meeting Room 116/117, Burke Centre Library, 5935 Freds Oak Road, Burke, VA 22015

Please join us for a fun meeting to brainstorm & help out orphans at the same time! We need lots of hands to help assemble goodie bags! Newcomers and familiar faces alike are all welcome.
