    Looking for something to do on Sunday November 12th? The ASURA travel committee has organized a trip to the Musical Instrument Museum (MIM). If you or your grandchildren have not yet visited the MIM  this is your opportunity to view the huge variety of things that people use to make music. If you have already visited the MIM then this is an opportunity to uncover as yet undiscovered instruments.


    At a recent performance at the Scottsdale Center for Performing Arts, Samite, a Ugandan who plays many of the different African instruments, said his visit to the museum blew him away and maybe he should consider moving to Phoenix to be near the MIM. 


    The one hour guided tour begins at 10:00 am and will include a signature event - Ancient Musical Treasures from Central China: Harmony of the Ancients from the Henan Museum. After the guided tour you are free to roam the entire museum - see if you can find the Elvis display!. At 11:00 am for an additional fee there will be a concert featuring the ancient Chinese instruments.


    Lunch is available at the Café Allegro in the museum, from 11 AM to 2:30 PM - cost for lunch is separate from the admission costs.


    Transportation

    The MIM is located at 4725 East Mayo Drive. The major cross streets are the 101 freeway and Tatum Blvd. See map for details.


    Cost

    1. General Admission to MIM is $20/person.  There are reduced cost for teens, children 4 to 12, and no charge for children 3 & under.
    2. Admission to the Chinese Instrument Concert is an additional $7/person for adults,
    3. Lunch is not included in the general admission charge.

The event is also open to non ASURA members so bring your spouse/partner/friends and enjoy.


    With respect to potluck items, we don't have access to a kitchen or sink, so be prepared to take your dirty dish home with you.


    We are looking to get an approximate count for set-up, beverages, etc., so please register for this event, see box to the left for registration instructions, by Tuesday December 12.


    Back again this year is the Bake Sale. So when you pull out the tried-and-true recipes for your favorite holiday cookies, breads, & candies, just double that recipe and bring a plate to sell. ALL proceeds from sales will go to ASURA to help fund activities of general interest to all. You can pre-price your items or let us do it for you.


    We promise that you'll find the Potluck to be a delightful time with friends and wonderful food.


    Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays to All!

    The Annual Meeting of the ASU Retirees Association celebrates the conclusion of each year, as called for in our Bylaws. The meeting provides an opportunity for us to recognize the activities and accomplishments of the organization and the contributions of our members. The meeting also provides an opportunity to discuss other matters that are of interest to the entire membership.


    The ASURA Annual Report is distributed to those who want a copy. The report summarizes the activities of ASURA for the year. Prior-year reports are available on the ASURA website in the Publications menu.


    This year the Annual Meeting will be held off campus on a weekday. We have reserved the Singer Hall in the Phoenix Art Museum on a Tuesday in April. There is free parking and the museum is just off a light rail stop.
