Speaking of Art...
The centerpiece art in the souvenir program book (shown below) was incorrectly credited in the book. The name of the piece is "Beacon Home" and it was created by Camille Meehan. We apologize for the error and would like to thank the artist for bringing it to our attention. On the plus side, we get to see it again here!
The Summer Picnic is Coming!
Did you volunteer at Norwescon 42? Are you curious about volunteering at Norwescon 43? Then please join us on Saturday, August 3rd for our annual Norwescon Volunteer Picnic! This year the picnic will be at Steel Lake Park in Federal Way, in the covered picnic area closest to the beach, from noon until 5 p.m. We will be providing hamburgers and hot dogs with fixings, along with soda and water. If you can please bring a side dish or dessert for everyone to share, that would be great! Friends and family are welcome. Parking is available, first-come, first-parked!
And the Camping Trip!
Once again the Norwescon Summer Camping Trip will be at Taidnapam State Park in scenic Glenoma, WA. Join us on August 23 - 25 for some fun in the (hopefully) sun! More details coming this summer, so save the date!
