SLIG 2016: A Photo Recap; Day 6

Well, it’s the final day. Nooo! Let’s have another week of learning! Today was the last day of researching the South. It turned out that our course co-coordinator, Kelvin Myers, was having a birthday today! Kelvin was surprised with fresh made birthday cupcakes (The best I’ve ever had). I think Anne Mitchell arranged all that. Also happening during our class sessions, Angela McGhie won a one year subscription to Ancestry World Explorer from Anne Mitchell of Ancestry.com.

 At the end of our classes for the day, we were presented with our certificate of completion by Kelvin. Very nice indeed! I have to say, this has been well worth every penny and I’d do it again. Oh, wait, I am next year!

 Later that evening I attended the pre-dinner party followed by dinner with the most moving talk by Judy G. Russell that I have ever heard from her. During dinner, SLIG board members thanked a lot of people for their support and even recognized me for my efforts in setting up a private Facebook group for students and teachers to talk to each other. Thanks Peg & Mary Jane! Oh, they approached me during the pre-dinner and asked if I would consider helping out with social media for next year. Wow! I was caught off guard. After about 5 seconds, I said, “Sure!” What have I gotten myself into now! I better step up my game.
