Roundabout 6.13.17


Our speaker on Tuesday, June 20, will be Chef Jeffrey Taber, Assistant Professor and Chair of the Hospitality Administration program at Ivy Tech Community College, Bloomington. Chef Taber has an extensive background in baking and pastry arts, including operating his own bakery. Within the hospitality area, Chef Taber is heavily involved with the concentrations in Culinary Arts and in Baking and Pastry. This should be a great program for the “foodies” among us! Our meeting will be held in State Rooms East and West of the Indiana Memorial Union at noon. Remember that if the IMU parking lots are full, you may park in the Henderson Parking Garage.
