The most important event for me has been the marriage of our daughter, Madison, to a wonderful man, Ian. Both are life-long members of the RISFC (being born into the Club has that effect), and both are Co Hosts of our R.I. PEG access show, Sci-Fi Journal.
What else? This has been the 'Summer of Many Conventions': Pintastic, ConnectiCon, Terrificon, BarryCon V ( a local board game event), RKO Con (celebrating all things Rocky Horror), and the newest, ConToons, which focuses on all those Saturday morning cartoons we all watched and loved. I believe that sugary cereals will be available that day too. Next up in November is Rhode Island ComicCon. The RISFC will have a presence there, so watch for us.
I have to admit, I don't enjoy the end of Summer. I don't get all goose-bumpy over the thought of needing warmer clothes, everything is pumpkin flavored, and pretty soon, I'll be up to my ass in snow. Nope, don't like it one bit. While I love my job as a TA in a local public school, I kind of liked the piece and quiet you don't get in the school halls every day. But that's my Introvert talking, so pay little attention.
The end of Summer 2019 also brings a new election of Board Members to the RISFC at our September meeting. If you're a member of this gang, please attend this one, because your vote will shape the course of our Club for the next two years. We celebrate our 32nd Anniversary that month too! So goodbye Summer 2019, it's been fun.
