  Enclosed is a brochure describing a workshop that we are

  Education in Blacksburg on February 22-23, 1999.  There
  will be a two-day interactive workshop titled "Planning
  Schools for the New Millennium."  The registration fee
  includes a banquet on Monday evening, a continental
  breakfast on Tuesday morning, and lunch on Tuesday, as well
  as your room for Monday night.  There also will be an
  exhibit of recent school projects completed in Virginia and
  a distinguished jury to give recognition from the
  Department of Education to the most successful projects. 
  Plaques will be presented to the architects and winning
  schools in four categories.

  A meeting of Virginia Educational Facility Planners (VEFP)
  is scheduled following breakfast on Tuesday morning.  This
  organization, now a chapter of the Council of Educational
  Facility Planners, Southeast Region, wants your input on
  future programs and meeting locations.  Please plan to
  attend and express your needs to the Board of Trustees and
  participate in the election of new officers for the coming
  year.
