Remember me?

What an odd month July has been!

First I had surgery and spent a week recovering. Then I was off for 10 days on a previously scheduled vacation. I finally returned to work on Monday.

Now for some reason my work computer will not let me make a new post on Blogger! So I am writing from home right now.

This week I've been working on reviewing the invitation and an ad for Treasures of Stark County: A Behind the Scenes Adventure, our fall fundraiser on September 24. It's going to be a great event! I just finished the press release so look for more information soon! I've also been working on treasure maps for the event.

LifeFormations came today to film a testimonial for their static and animatronic figures. I had a wonderful experience working with their artists, so I was more than willing to help. They made our animatronic McKinleys and the Doctor and Little Girl in the Street of Shops. They plan to post the video on their website, and I will be posting links here and on Facebook.

Speaking of Facebook, we've gotten three new Monument wedding photos! Become a fan so you can check them out!

We're also planning 2011 events so we can submit them for the CVB and the Sourcebook. We have some really neat things coming up. 2011 is going to be a great year! I will be posting more soon about our plans.

Next week is Movie Camp, so look for daily updates on our progress. I hear it's a "Night at the Museum" theme. Sounds like FUN!!!

Summer Science Splash

I haven't been around in awhile because I am home on a medical leave recovering from surgery to remove one of my salivary glands. I have had chronic salivary gland stones for a very long time, and my body finally made one that was too big to ever come out. So Dr. Ossakow from Ohio Head and Neck took it out last Friday. I am healing nicely, but it is still uncomfortable. I have a two-inch incision on my neck.

But things are still hopping at the museum in my absence!

The AC is working just fine, so it's a great time to beat the heat at the museum.

PLUS tonight is our 2nd annual Summer Science Splash. There are a few outdoor activities planned that can easily be moved inside if the weather doesn't cooperate.

So if you're looking for something to do, go to the museum tonight! Family fun for everyone.
