Subject: Happy "Old New Year"!


Dear RuSS Members and Friends,

It's the Old New Year's eve tonight, traditionally celebrated in Russia, so

S NOVYM GODOM!

As usual, there is a fair number of things that I would like to tell you
about, so please let me start with a brief content:

1. Long awaited "Old New Year" party - reminder and details.
2. Plans for the nearest future.
3. Can we exchange books?
4. Russian guide/interpreter needed for a few days.
5. Coming soon: Russian music in Cambridge.

2. The next few things that have been planned by the Russian Society are:

3. A few people have suggested that we could have a Russian book exchange.
If any of you have books that you may consider sharing with other people, or
donating to a hypothetical "Russian library", or if anybody would like to
volunteer to be our collective librarian, please respond.

4. A request from St John's innovation centre: There will be a delegation of
Russian scientists coming in February. People who organise this visit wonder
if there is a Russian person who knows Cambridge and would like to act as
an official interpeter / guide for this group. It will be for 2-3 days at
the end of February, around 22-25th. If you are interested please write to
Dina Shagiakhmetova <[log in to unmask]>
or Jorma Kuningas <[log in to unmask]>
