Greetings friends! Well, there weren't exactly any wonders happening today, but I wanted a snappy title! So what's new? Things are chugging along. I was spending time today researching an exciting race type of event that we're planning to do this summer. It will be a new event for us, so there is a lot that I need to learn. I have a meeting next week with Assembly Row to talk more about the event. They are excited for it and I am really looking forward to working with them again. It is always good to add new events and it has been a while since we added a whole new event. I had already been researching websites that offer race registration and management tools. There are a lot of sites out there, but some are rather expensive. I think I've found a good one that is well priced and will give us what we need. It is so important when you are researching to keep an open mind and really look at everything that is out there and not just look for things that back up what you are already thinking.
Tomorrow, I'm off to Somerville PD to drop off our next donation of stuffed animals, books and coloring books. The new contact person that I am working with is a female sergeant. She seems very enthusiastic about our program. I always like to meet women police officers- I don't meet that many of them and it is great to see women in that role.
Right after that, I'm heading down to Braintree to pick up silent auction items for the silent auction that we're doing at Boston Event Guide's winter wine/beer fest this Saturday. They are always really good to us and I'm happy for the opportunity that they give us. This winter event is a new one for them, so hopefully it will be a good attendance. I think the weather is going to be good, so that will be helpful. It's nice to have events this time of year because people are looking for things to do.
Well, that's the latest for tonight. I'm off to eat some more clementines. I really wish I was eating cheese and crackers- ah, if only cheese was a health food... Until next time...
