RESOURCES: CRAFTS & HOBBIES
OK, let’s keep this one as broad as possible. There are so many interesting things to do. Reunion 2014 included an event called “Ambassadors for Lifelong Engagement.” Ambassadors talking about their craft, hobby, or project included: Dennis Miller, Robotics; Scott Jamieson, Astronomy; Paul Froehling, Genealogy; and Lou Davit, Solar Panel project. Interesting discussions were had with each ambassador.
