Screening of the movie “Most Likely to Succeed”

Attention All Staff,

I would like to encourage as many as possible of you to attend the screening of the movie “Most Likely to Succeed” which will be held in the Luther College Lecture Theatre on Wednesday evening at 7.00pm.  I believe Kim Powell from LEVNT has some refreshments arranged for Wednesday night.
Rather than just add another evening activity to your already busy week, I have cancelled the Staff Meeting we had planned for tomorrow afternoon. If there are any matters that we needed to discuss at Staff Meeting, please correspond with people via email, or raise them at our before school staff devotion and briefing.
If you are intending to attend the movie screening, would you please email me by end of today so I can give Kim an indication of numbers.
Thank you very much.
