Hello everyone,
I hope you have had time to recover from our big bash on Monday night. It was a smashing success, and it wouldn't have been without the help of our wonderful staff and volunteers.

Special thanks to:

If I've forgotten anyone, please forgive me. I wasn't able to make the rounds to all the stations so I may not have talked with you.

The attendance at the ExploraDome was 148--not quite at capacity even though we were 100% booked prior to the event. We were able to seat many walk-ins, though, which was wonderful!

I can't speak to the attendance for the activities and the auditorium events, but things were hopping up there all night so I'm sure it was great!

A great deal of work was put into this event, and I think it was well worth it, especially for making the planning of future events much easier. I hope we have many more to come!
