Agenda For July 2014
July 1 - Pot
start off this Independence Day week and the Lazy Days
of Summer (Id like to talk to the person who came
up with that notion) with our annual Summer Pot Luck,
followed by another Bingo night as has been requested
by many of our members.
We will dine on the dishes contributed by our members and
enjoy each others company. Keep
in mind that you are welcome to come even if you cant
prepare a dish but then we do ask for a contribution so we
can add additional food as needed. A $10 contribution is suggested,
as it has been in the past. Keep in mind to bring serving
spoons if required for your dish.
our dining experience, we will enjoy a friendly game of
Bingo. Previously, the Bingo nights had been scheduled
on the fifth Tuesday, but July has five Tuesdays, so we decided
to include it with a Pot Luck to begin the month this summer.
Of course there will be prizes for those who have the winning
I hope you will come enjoy this Tuesday evening with us.

Anniversary Party & Reunion
it exciting that TUGNET will be celebrating its 30th Anniversary
this month? Yes, it was 30 years ago that TUGNET became
an official non-profit, recognized by the State and the IRS.
It has certainly come a long way and I think we are all proud
of this milestone.
I hope you have responded with your RSVP to the recent invitation
that was sent. The planning committee has been working on
a number of features that I know you will enjoy. Some of our
past members are coming to renew acquaintances, which will
make for a splendid time in itself, plus there will be other
special guests you will enjoy seeing.
There are some surprises in store
for you as well, so I hope you wont miss this very special
night in the life of TUGNET.
July 22 - Connecting
What a perfect topic for a July meeting! All these lazy days
of summer, right? Of course, they are not really lazy for
TUGNET members since we have a lot going on. But relaxing,
in addition to having things to do, is a very important part
of our lives.
we know how to properly relax? For some it may be hard because
of guilt feelings about not attending to some matters at hand,
or because it feels like goofing off when there are chores
to perform, or just because there is so much on ones
mind, its hard to decide what should come first. Enter
Shirley Vinock, whose appearance was suggested by one
of our members. Shirley Vinock specializes in relaxation
techniques. Shell acquaint us with a Journey
for Focus, showing us the proper techniques
to use to make the best use of the time we have.
specialty is helping people reduce stress, improve sleep,
and other problems such as fear of flying, weight and pain
management and stopping the smoking habit. Shirley
has impressive credentials which apply to her speaking on
this topic and more. There will something included in this
meeting that can help each one of us, so do come hear what
she has to say.
As I said, her visit was recommended by one of members, so
take advantage of this opportunity.
July 29 - Easy
of us have benefitted from previous visits by Bruce Aronson,
so we are welcoming him back this week. The tips he includes
in his Easy Time Management presentation can
be beneficial to each and every one of us since everyone who
attends TUGNET meetings is a busy person. He presents these
ideas in a way that we can remember and use to our own advantage,
regardless of how we usually plan our days.
What? Plan our days? Well, that may be a starting point for
some of us.
Bruce is an engaging and exciting speaker and you
will be glad you spent your evening with him. By the way,
he gets paid for giving his talks and teaching his techniques
in the corporate environment but comes to TUGNET because he
likes us. Do come.
