Well – okay – there’s no rain (yet), but I am wearing sweaters again.  And as soon as I am wearing a sweater, I feel more entitled to make suggestions about activities that take people indoors.  That said, here are five upcoming activities involving CultureNet students and faculty.  Come join us inside.  For more information, conact
