David Ralley and Lucy Venable have just put LabanWriter 4.6 up on the OSU Department of Dance website. Go to where you can download for either OS9 or OSX.
Heads Up!
Version 4.6 will run on OS9, but this is the last version that will do so. Future versions will only run under OSX. Instructions are there for downloading to OS9. Follow them carefully regarding the fonts. When you download now to OSX the fonts find their place automatically. No muss, no fuss! Your Feedback Matters!
David and Lucy would like to remind you again to let them know immediately when you have problems or when you have a request or new idea. Sometimes the answer is already there, and they just need to explain something to you. Sometimes it is something they can fix quickly and make it available for everyone to download so just send a message to while you're there at your computer. They would like to hear from you.

An Opportunity to Give Back
Camp Sunrise, a non-profit organization that sponsors a one-week summer camp for kids impacted by HIV and AIDS, is accepting applications from interested volunteer camp counselors for its 2007 camp. The camp will be held August 12-18th, and staff will be required to participate in a pre-camp training on Friday, August 10 and Saturday, August 11. The camp, as well as the staff training, will be held at Camp Kern in Oregonia, Ohio, just north of Cincinnati.

We are in search of camp counselors and volunteers for our Expressive Arts program. All volunteers must be 21 years of age at the time of camp. We are specifically looking for someone to participate in the Expressive Arts program (which is comprised of talent show preparation, campfire activities, music, writing, and other theatre components). We are also in search of camp counselors for the week of camp. These individuals work in groups of three or four to oversee a cabin of 8-10 youth, assisting them with traditional camp activities like horseback riding, archery, canoeing, drama and arts & crafts. The youth attending Camp Sunrise's summer camp are between the ages of 6-17 and are impacted by HIV and AIDS, meaning that they themselves are HIV positive or are living with or grieving the loss of a loved one to the disease.
Lodging and food are provided for the entire week for volunteer camp counselors, and new counselors will be working under the guidance of veteran counselors and a highly skilled camp director. All volunteers are responsible for their own transportation to and from camp. Volunteers must be able to commit to the staff training and the entire week of camp. Volunteers must fill out an application, complete an interview, and undergo an FBI and BCII fingerprinting screening at the time of the interview.

More information and camp counselor applications are available on the website at Interested volunteers may also contact the Program Manager, Katie McKee at (216) 432-9544 or Deadline for applications is July 1, 2007; however, Camp Sunrise is currently interviewing for these positions. Apply as soon as possible!
