LEARN Newsletter June 2017 | Summer Fun

A newsletter from the inbox late last week.

JUNE 2017

OH WHAT A YEAR!

Have a great summer!

What a year!  Everyone worked their derrieres to the ground.  Take the time to re-constitute yourselves.  Enjoy and be happy.  Next year, the challenges will be greater and more demanding and LEARN needs you fully charged and ready to go. My summer message is simply this: Be good or be bad, but just have a memorable summer.  Make it special!
