I should have written this post over a month ago, but the last month (or several) have been pretty busy in my neck of the woods. The end of April saw the end of Mind Bubble’s Spring 2017 semester and first year in operation! By the end of the semester we were running three tutoring sessions a week with plans to start up workshop programming this summer (and, if the idea of free educational workshops for middle schoolers on topics like spoken-word poetry and disease hunting sounds awesome to you, check out our website – we still have slots available for students in some workshops, and we’re always looking for more volunteer facilitators to help out!).
We also completed our second fundraiser, which was a “Catan for Cheaters” tournament. Congratulations to the victor, Mike Robinson, and to my wife, Lucy McNamara, who placed second – all of the competitors fought hard, and it was a lot of fun! Thanks also to Challenges Games and Comics and Garlic Clove Foods who donated our prizes for the winners. We’re already brainstorming exciting fundraisers in a similar vein for next year, so stay tuned!
Thanks, finally, to everyone who made the Spring semester and first year of Mind Bubble so great – our tutors, students, donors, friends, and family! We couldn’t have done it without you, and we’re looking forward to Mind Bubble’s future!
