Dear Friends, 

Can you believe it!!!  The Goudreau Museum of Mathematics in Art and Science is celebrating its 20th Anniversary.  A gala dinner will be held on November 15, 2001 at the Swan Club in Glenwood Landing to commemorate this momentous event.  This celebration will be held in conjunction with the Museumís Annual Awards Dinner. 

We will be honoring the founding of the Museum by Bernie Goudreau in 1981.  Bernieís work in developing the Math Museum will be remembered by several of his friends and colleagues.  There will also be replicas of some of the original exhibits and puzzles for your enjoyment.  In the continuing tradition of the Museum, the Annual Dinner will honor several individuals for outstanding contributions to mathematics and volunteer leadership.

We invite you--members and friends of the Museum; past Board Trustees; former students and colleagues of Bernie; and all members of the math community--to join in this celebration.

As you are aware, the Math Museum is a not-for-profit organization.  Fundraising events such as this dinner enable the Museum to continue to fulfill its mission to promote and encourage interest in mathematics for everyone and to emphasize the fun and joy in the study of mathematics. 

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I strongly encourage you to be present at the eveningís festivities.  If, however, you are unable to attend, you can still contribute your support to this event by subscribing to our Dinner Journal.  Click here for details regarding the Dinner and Journal.

I hope that we can count on your support and generosity.

Chair, Board of Trustees
