Activities for the Summer!
Since we technically "take the summer off" at TGS from our monthly
meetings, we are offering two
events during July and August. It is our goal to "not lose touch with each
other" so it is important
that we all participate as we can.
July 20th - Saturday, 6:30 - 8:30 pm we are planning a
Family Picnic time. It is for your entire family
and the TGS family (ants not invited). So mark your calendar now.
It will be in one of the local parks with plenty of room for kids to run
and play. It will be a homestyle picnic (pot-luck) so bring a dish to share.
Also bring chairs, blankets, whatever so we can
gather together to share our summer activities. Park will be announced ASAP.
We will try to have a pavilion but if not,
plenty of shade!
Friday, Aug 16th, 6 pm - 11 pm, let's have "a Research Lock-In!"
It will be at TGS and we will have research assistants to work with you
in your family tree search! More information will be forthcoming. But mark
you calender now!!!
