This week while driving to an appointment I heard a radio ad for the State Fair.  With the State Fair signifying, to the State of Minnesota, that summer is ending I ask the question "where did summer go"?  If you are anything like me you are in the midst of school clothes and supplies shopping. Getting ready for the kids first days back will be here before we know it.  While we are all looking for the last orange folder that your child needs for class, the Fall Aging Conference Steering Committee is hard at work finalizing all of the details for the 41st  Annual Conference.  


While you are searching for 18 glue sticks don't forget about our August 27th meeting.  As usual, we will have a wonderful speaker, plenty of professionals to network with and some amazing treats.  We look forward to seeing you there!
