Dear Ms. Gianetti:

As you may know, our office is moving to a new location at 1837 Plymouth Avenue (across the street from the Bailey supermarket). Construction is finally complete, and we will begin seeing patients there on Monday, May 2.

The new location offers twice as many parking spaces, more examination rooms, and a larger waiting room than the old office on Eastbridge Road did. In order to accommodate an increase in the number of patients, our new schedule will offer weekend appointments and longer hours during the workweek; we will now be open 8 A.M. – 6 P.M., Monday – Friday, and 10 A.M. – 3 P.M., on Saturday. We are also welcoming two additions to our staff: Dr. Anne Hui, who has been practicing dentistry for over ten years, and Ellen Howard, our new dental assistant.

For detailed directions to the new location, see the enclosed map. Please note that Exit 9 is the nearest exit if you are driving on the Benson Highway. The nearest light rail station is Grosvenor Street.

Waitakere Zoo

January 22

Allan McBride
89 Havilland Avenue
Henderson 0610, New Zealand

Dear Mr. McBride:

On behalf of the Friends of the Waitakere Zoo, I thank you for your donation. Your generosity, along with that of other donors, has enabled us to complete construction on the African Savannah enclosure. When it opens in July, the enclosure will provide our antelope, giraffe, and zebra populations an environment that is more similar to their natural habitat than zoo enclosures typically are. Moreover, it will give visitors a better vantage from which to view these beautiful creatures.

We are pleased to inform you that your name will be listed with the names of other donors on a commemorative plaque at the entrance to the African Savannah enclosure. As a further token of our appreciation, please accept a full season pass, which will allow you and one guest to enter at no charge. It will arrive this week in a separate letter.

Thank you again for your support. We look forward to your next visit to the zoo.

Yours sincerely,

Joseph Ihimaera
Associate Director
Friends of the Waitakere Zoo

Hochstein to Be Headed by
Barrault Bondy Executive

February 10 – Recent movement of executives among the fashion industry’s leading companies appears not to be ending anytime soon. Hochstein Shoes, Inc., Swiss-based retailer and manufacturer of men’s shoes, announced today that its chief executive officer, Gerard Hullot, will retire, and that Angelica Ferrara, current executive vice-president of Barrault Bondy, will take his place.

Experts say the succession represents a major upset within the industry, since Barrault Bondy, the Paris-based manufacturer, is one of Hochstein’s leading competitors in the high-end shoe market.

Hullot’s departure comes as little surprise, however. He had publicly indicated his desire to retire in order to write a memoir of his long career in fashion, over thirty years of which were spent at Hochstein. Nevertheless, most experts had expected him to stay on until after November, when the company’s winter collection is released.

Ferrara’s move has generated much speculation about who will take her place at Barrault Bondy. Sources there indicate that current design director Marcel Hugo will be named the new executive vice president in a press release later this week.

173. What is the main topic of the article?
174. How does the article describe Mr. Hullot?
175. According to the article, what will probably happen later this week?

Crockett Center for Community Development

28 Freeney Avenue
Austin, TX 73301

May 16

Dathan Shaw, Urban Outreach Director
Integral Harvest
184 Van Buren Street
Denver, CO 80210

Dear Mr. Shaw:

I enjoyed our meeting last week. I know of no other non-profit organization that performs such a vital service for all-natural agriculture as yours does, and I am enthusiastic about the prospect of the Crocket Center working with Integral Harvest.

As you know, the Crockett Center has recently turned its attention to urban gardening. On this front, the main priorities are to expand existing community gardens in Austin and to found new ones in neighborhoods currently lacking them. Therefore, I would like to proceed with the gardening classes we discussed in our meeting, to be taught on-site by Integral Harvest representatives and attended by Austin community residents. If you will let me know your representatives’ availability for teaching the classes and also the range of topics they will cover, I can prepare a class schedule and generate interest in it among residents. My assistant, Cindy Reed, will call you shortly for this information.

As for your proposal that Integral Harvest representatives demonstrate organic gardening to elementary school students here in Austin, since our meeting I have spoken with several school administrators. It seems that a number of the schools have gardening clubs, so students and teachers alike should make a receptive audience. Let us discuss this proposal further in our next meeting, which Ms. Reed will schedule.

I am sure that, if our two organizations work together, we can do much to promote urban gardening as a rewarding and healthful endeavor.

Yours sincerely,

Letitia Price, Executive Director
