My House Arabianranta is on in a minute!

The glorious event, largely organised by the residents of the involved buildings, draws near!

Before I can wrap up this week, though, I need everybody’s help in order to take care of all the chores. I jotted down a to-do list that consists of things we can do in our own time without any particular meetings.

At the moment the most critical tasks are distributing posters, making orders and picking up different materials for next week. The posters remind the locals of important dates; first-hand experience shows that without posters people simply won’t turn up. There are nearly a hundred of us out there, so we should be able to get a whole lot done!

I could take part in organising the event 3.9.–9.9. by… This is taken care of by… And they are helped by…
