The Barter Board, Notices, etc., are all available to everyone in their list of Outlook Folders. On your main Outlook page, click on the "Folder List" icon (located near the lower-left corner. Clicking on it expands the list of folders. Scroll down to the bottom and Expand Public Folders. Then Expand All Public Folders. That's where you'll see the Barter Board

It's the first Friday of the month at noon--what's that noise?
An emergency siren is tested the first Friday of each month, March through November. The test will consist of a one to three minute steady tone. This siren would be used in the event of an actual emergency such as a tornado.

I Have Dietary Restrictions
In the spirit of inclusion, CLAS posts menus a couple days in advance for all its major events (see the CLAS website page devoted to that event). We do our best to note when a dish is vegan, gluten free, etc. and if a dish includes pork products, shellfish, dairy, etc. We strive for a variety that will enable you to enjoy our events.
