I would like to thank outgoing officers Jennifer Warstler, Cecilia Brzys, and Jaret Johnson for all of the energy and leadership each of them have and continue to contribute to FAST.
3) Help us keep our website up-to-date!
The updated website has a special section to list Member Accomplishments. These pages can only be as up-to-date as you help us make them. Please check out the pages, learn a little about fellow members and send updates to the address listed on each page!
4) Camping with the President, without the Secret Service
For the past several years, David and I have traveled 'Up-North' for the Inter Rockin' Triathlon at Interlochen State Park the weekend following the 4th of July. It coincides with the last weekend of the Cherry Festival. (i.e. Parade and Fireworks!) Campground reservations for the weekend open up soon. Free s'mores to all FAST members who stop by our campsite on Saturday night.
Have a safe and Happy New Year, and go FASTer in 2010!
