Join us for Happy “CAPPY” Hour!
All summer the Civic Action Program (CAP) team has been thinking of doing something special to kick-off the school year for our Los Angeles area CAP teachers. Here’s what we came up with . . .

First, we’ll gather on the 60th Floor of the AON building located in downtown L.A. While enjoying the amazing view, we’ll enjoy some snacks, share some updates, and gather your opinions on upcoming CAP activities. We’ll then head over to “Public School 213” for Happy “CAPPY” hour and just relax, socialize, and catch up on our summer breaks. First round is on us!

We’ll also be providing a $50 stipend and arrange for free parking nearby! What’s the catch? We have a max capacity of 30 teachers, so please RSVP now while there’s still space! Feel free to bring along a fellow and equally dedicated teacher interested in joining our CAP-LA community.

Special thanks to CRF Board Chair, Bob Stern, for hosting us at the offices of Morrison & Foerster.

When: Thursday, September 3, 2015, 4:30pm–5:30pm
Where: Morrison & Foerster followed by Happy “Cappy Hour” at Public School 213 @ 5:30pm
