ILI’s 35th anniversary was celebrated with balloons and a new sign painted by ILI teacher, Janelle Rivers (the arrow points to her) and ILI’s new logo designed by Rafael Bresson, a graphic designer from Brazil who is also a current ILI student. If you’re in Northampton, check out the new sign on Elm/Main St.
We continued with a staff and board member gathering at executive director, Caroline Gear’s home. Two new board members, Christina Monte and Patricia Hill, were welcomed and a fond farewell was said to board president Eric Wirth, for his excellent leadership of seven years! We have a fabulous ILI family and love that we get to welcome international students to our lovely corner of the world.
