January 2020


Holy moly. What just happened? What day is it? Who am I? What's my name?

The last month of the decade was a whirlwind. I love the holidays but I sure am ready to get back into a routine.

2019 held many challenges and changes for me personally and the club did some amazing things. I am excited to see what 2020 has in store for us. We'll kick it off with Bon Voyage: Trivia Night on January 31.
