From your co-chairs
This Winter Edition of the newsletter marks the point of the year when Boynton Society members can take advantage of one of their most popular membership benefits: Registering for Summer/Fall Seminars in advance of all others. More details about that opportunity can be found elsewhere in this newsletter, in a piece authored by our Seminar Superstar Bailey Koepsel.
Although I am a relative amateur at Seminars compared to many of you ... only one Seminar in recent years, and even then as a commuter...I do deeply appreciate the "vacations with a focus" in which so many of you participate as faithful annual attendees. I know that some of you attend more than one program a year, and many are loyal participants in all programs offered by their favorite leader. Of course you will be welcomed back with open arms! For others who, like me, promised myself for many years that I would "start attending seminars when the time is right" perhaps 2018 is the year you honor that promise. There will be lots of wonderful offerings from which to choose. So ... take advantage of the early sign-up feature and get your Summer/Fall off to a head start.
As we are now in December, I would be remiss if I didn't include a reminder to consider making calendar year-end gifts to support the Boynton Society. We all have our own rhythms to our giving to Lawrence, and the University's fiscal year runs until June 30. But if your deductible gift should be reported on your 2017 tax return, now is the time. And the earlier in the fiscal year you make your gift, the better it is for Lawrence's cash flow.
Most importantly...thanks for your generous support of Bjorklunden. You provide the funding that makes our "Birch Forest by the Water" the magical place so many enjoy.
Blessings to you and yours at this Holiday Season.
