A little madness is in the Spring
Is wholesome even for the King.
2014 NEW YEAR’S BANQUET
NOTA members and visitors from Community and Court Interpreters of Ohio www.ccio.org braved treacherous roads to dine heartily at the NOTA’s New Year’s Banquet. Olesia’s Place in North Royalton served up plentiful fare from borscht to crème brûlée http://www.olesiasplace.com. Ever savored a deviled egg topped with caviar? Reinhold Federmann, NOTA Treasurer, hadn’t before either. Combine authentic delicacies from the Ukraine and Spanish/German/Turkish translators and interpreters = networking and lively conversation.
WORTH THE TRIP
A newbie to the field, Kent graduate student Gregory Henninger, took advantage of the event to pose questions to the seasoned crowd. Was he a bit tetched to drive clear from Kent across snowy highways? Ask him in a year once he put into practice the many recommendations he noted in-between the smoked salmon and stuffed cabbage rolls. I claim semi-insanity for climbing into my Focus against risky road conditions to feast again with fellow linguists. Kudos to Vitaliy Plinto NOTA Program Chair who secured the reservation and nestled each chair with a gift box of chocolates from Latvia. Diakuju, my friend.
