I hope you are all having a great summer! I feel like the snow just melted a few weeks ago. It's been relatively slow compared to most years, without a CONvergence room and the accompanying truck and stuff. We had a great time and are looking forward to being back in the saddle next year. See the results of the 18th annual CONvergence Blood Drive in this newsletter and prepare to be amazed! We're also looking forward to the Lake Paulsen outing on the weekend of August 18th.
We're only a month or so from September - can you believe it? Soon it's time for the Fair and Vikings season!! We also have our yearly calendar planning coming up, so if you have a particular activity you'd like us to do, please bring it to a Board member. Keep in mind that any activity is fair game, as long as folks think it's a fun idea. It's a great plan to offer to chair the activity, so keep that in mind, but it's not necessary. In recent years we've added many fun events, such as theater visits, historical outings, new charity events, brewery tours and more. No idea is too crazy - bring it on! It's also time to start planning our annual December holiday get-together. This is usually a nice potluck event, but we've done fun alternatives like a visit to Kelly Farm or a holiday lights bus tour, so think outside the box. Please let the Board know your ideas by the September 7th board meeting, or better yet, come to the meeting yourself with your idea.
Also, don't miss our September meeting on the 8th. It's a fun day with bowling and dinner, and we'd like to see everyone there.
See you around the Galaxy!
