Employee organizations schedule holiday events

Nov. 19, 2009

KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University's two non-bargaining employee groups, the Administrative Professional Association and Professional Support Staff Organization, have scheduled holiday get-togethers.

APA event

APA is sponsoring an out-of-this-world gathering at the Kalamazoo Valley Museum Planetarium from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 3.

The family-friendly event will feature a social hour with appetizers followed by a 50-minute planetarium show called "Seasons of Light." The gathering will showcase the recently remodeled KVM Planetarium, which now has some of the most sophisticated digital projection technology in the world.

WMU employees and their guests do not need to be members of APA to attend the event, which costs $5 for APA members, $7 for youth age 12 and younger, and $10 for non-members.

Register online at wmich.edu/apa by 5 p.m. Monday, Nov. 30, and pay at the door. The admission fee will be charged for registrations not canceled by 5 p.m. Nov. 30.
