I can now provide more details about this "Teaching Haskell in K-12" dinner
I'm organizing in St. Louis during ICFP.  We'll be having dinner at 7:30 pm
on Monday, Sep 24, at Lombardo's Trattoria in St. Louis.  This is directly
across the road from the conference hotel.

Please consider attending if you are interested in making connections,
learning, or sharing your experience with using Haskell or similar
languages in education prior to the university level.  This could be
anything from teaching your own kids to running an organized program at
scale.  Our goal is to connect people into a critical mass of community
members who know each other, stay in contact, ask and answer questions, and
share ideas and experiences - possibly leading to collaborations in
research, volunteerism, sharing of resources and tools, etc.  I'm expecting
a fun group including a mix of backgrounds from academics to hobbyists to
professional developers, and from Haskell newcomers to long-standing
pillars of the Haskell community.

If you would like to attend, *please RSVP with this interest form*
