Time has flown by- YES is a mere 15 days away! We are beyond stoked for everyone to get out to Island, and we have a lot of exciting things that have been happening behind the scenes that we would love to fill you all in on!
First and foremost we have officially launched our 2017 Annual YES Scholarship Fund! This year we need your help to meet our goal of $750 so that we can continue to make YES a reality for the 70% of conferees that receive financial assistance each summer. With the continued growth of our conference, this awesome and personalized campaign fund is more important than ever! In exchange for your generosity, staff and conferees create individualized "thank you's" to show our deep appreciation for your continued support of YES. Please follow this link to find more information, donate, or simply pass it along to someone who may be interested in supporting a great conference in exchange for a lot of love.
In other news, we have an official date and time for our YES Alumni & Friends Cookout! The cookout will happen at the First Unitarian Society in Newton who have graciously offered their space on Saturday, July 29th, 2pm-5pm! Come by to reminisce about Gullbots, Moxie, impromptu Brookfield dance parties, and so much more! We'll have music, lots of fun games, and of course awesome food on the grill. Come by to have a good time and see everyone's beautiful faces and spirits! Oh, and bring your friends!
We are also thrilled to reveal our incredible conference T-shirt designed by our very own magical fairy godmother, Kieran Tom! These beautiful shirts feature our conference theme, Guiding Lights, through constellations and the buildings of Star Island we have all come to know and love so completely (or will come to know and love!) We'll have the shirts available on Island, so be on the look out!
Finally, if you have not yet had the chance to register or you know someone who is still interested in the conference, do not fear! We are extending our registration deadline until August 1st so please don't hesitate to follow this link to register today, we'd love to hear from you!
