POLITICAL PLUMS - PART 2

CHECK THIS INVITATION!

Below are excerpts from an invitation I received to attend a Christmas open house at the offices of Brian Masse, M.P. Windsor West.
Find and correct the errors in these examples. (I found four.)
Bonus: get a star for identifying the proofreader.


"Please feel free to stop in and meet my staff and I for a snack and some warm holiday wishes."

"Please also note that we are also holding a canned food drive at this event, and for those that are able, please bring a non-perishable item which will be donated to families in need within our community this holiday seasson."


A QUOTE FOR ALL SEASONS

Identify the author of the following philosophy.

“In peace there's nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility.”


TODAY'S WORD

The word for today is "omniscient".
Define "omniscient" and use it in a sentence.


P.S.

Bravo to BJ. He corrected all the errors. Check his comment if you cannot find all of them.

Regarding Brian Masse's invitation:

stop in and meet my staff and I (should be 'my staff and me')

also note that we are also holding (too many 'alsos')

and for those that are able ('who' instead of 'that')

holiday seasson (I always spell season with one s in the middle, not two)

How's that?
