10.  The following is a message from Allison Krache, the ISL Global Friends
Coordinator for 2003-2004:

Hi, ISL people!  Remember that ISL/UGA Holiday Tree that Global Friends is
creating?  It will be on display in downtown Atlanta, at the Festival of
Trees at the Georgia World Congress Center the first week in December.

However... we need ornaments made...

I am planning on going THIS week to buy materials for the making of the
ornaments.  Please email me by THIS Wednesday night (Nov. 5) the materials
that you'd
need to make your ornament.  Remember: if we can stay away from it, let's
not just do construction paper and marker ornaments - let's give people a
reason to want to buy this tree.  :)

Please be as specific as possible when you email Allison your needs.

Please pass this along during your organizational meetings, get them
involved.  We don't need just one ornament from each country - we need many!

Even if you don't have a specific organization from your native country, we
would incredibly appreciate your input!

Mark your calendar: November 14th.  You want to be at ISL that afternoon.
Specific times will be announced in the near future.
Why do you want to be there, you ask?  Because there will be an Ornament
Workshop.  I'll have the materials there you need to make your ornament, and
there will be free food to thank you for your hard work.  :)

Thanks so much in advance!
