Robin's Roost - rest your feathers!
I learned from the National office that we were behind in publishing our Treasurer reports. The report from the April
ExComm meeting should have been published in the next newsletter, but it wasn’t. So you will find two reports in this month's
newsletter to get caught up.
The school buses are back on the roads and traffic is increasing again as the schools and colleges and universities all crank back
up again. I'm always amazed at how long it takes me to get from point A to point B when the schools are all back in session.
August was a fun month, a group of us gathered for the Mission Impossible movie in IMAX. It was entertaining and very over the
top. Our dinner at Red Lobster was fabulous despite the less-than cooperative weather. Been a long time since I enjoyed a big pile of
crab legs. It provided me follow-up dinners from the left overs.
We have another group-sponsored event this month – a boat ride at Wakulla Springs on Saturday, September 8. We are aiming for
the first boat of the day to see the maximum number of wildlife possible. The member and a guest will be covered, although you
can bring as many people as you wish to participate. Get your RSVP in soon if you plan to attend.
Final notice - we are transitioning to an electronic newsletter. The print newsletter will be reduced to the bare minimum required
and the electronic one will have additional materials. If you are interested in switching from print to electronic or checking on
what your preference is currently set to, go to https://www.us.mensa.org/ and log in to your
account. There you can update your preferences.
Hope to see you soon!
