July 18 "Welcome to New England" Party/ BBQ in Nahant!

Come one, come all to our "Welcome to New England Party/BBQ" at Carter Smith's gorgeous house in the oceanside resort town of Nahant!

We would like to invite, in particular, all those SLUGs who have recently moved to New England, either having recently graduated from UCSC or who have recently chosen this wonderful corner of the country to live in for whatever reason.

WHEN: Saturday afternoon, July 18

WHAT TO BRING: BYOB and your bathing suit!

RSVP deadline: July 8

This party is also a fundraiser for the Smith Renaissance Society. Carter Smith is generously providing the BBQ. In lieu of a contribution towards the food, we are suggesting that you make a donation to the Smith Renaissance Society, an organization the BSLUGS have supported for many years which is a grassroots, alumni-initiated effort to provide financial, academic and emotional support to veterans of the foster care or juvenile justice systems, orphans without family support or others who have been forced to go at life on their own. There is has never been a better time for us to extend a financial hand to this unique and valuable organization that makes a difference for so many.

Please rsvp and mail your tax-deductible contributions to me. See form below.

The BSLUG Board (Beata, Robin, Paula, Erika, Carter, Maria, Jill, Ian, Zoe, and Richard) look forward to seeing you there!

All tax deductible donations received will go to whichever fund you choose: either the Operating Fund (which will directly support the position of the part-time advisor) or the the Scholarship Fund. Contributions large and small are needed to reach our goal of $1000. Bill Dickinson, fellow BSLUG Board member and founder of the Smith Society (Cowell '68) has offered to match all contributions to help us reach our goal.
