VirtualOffiCenters/OffiCenters Monthly Newsletter 
Featuring Opportunities for Creative Collaboration 

Notes From Lori
It's July and summer is in full swing. We have some special events planned for you this month. Park Connections,
our free monthly networking group, will meet July 6 and, as always, we are expecting a big crowd. Then, July 11 is France UnCorked where we'll partner with New Business MN Small Business Advisory Board, of which I am a proud member, to host a reception and networking event. You will also get great tips from small business experts on the topic, " What Every New Business Should Know". This will be an especially large group so bring plenty of business cards. Mark your calendar now as this only happens once per quarter. Donut Day on July 19 will be an informal introduction to our new billing system that will take effect on your August invoices. Read the feature article below to see what all the buzz is about. Did I hear a rumor that there is an app for that? And, the month will close with PowerLunch on July 27. BOOM!
 
If that's not enough for you, in August we celebrate CoWorking with a super-sized Thirsty Thursday on August 17, a OneCommunity collaboration to include a Bill Spiess Walleye Luncheon and even more exciting news as we are almost ready to undergo a full-scale remodel and announce our sixth location slated to open this fall. We have our work cut out for us.  All of this means more creative places for you to Work Awesome.
 
I received the WANY (Workspace Association New York) Pinnacle Award in New York City just last month. This is one of our industry's greatest honors and I was proud to be recognized for the accomplishments that OffiCenters has made in the shared workspace industry. Although it also salutes our lifetime achievements over the past 36 years, you should know that we're nowhere near done innovating in the global arena. 
 
Happy 4th of July! The staff at OffiCenters is excited to celebrate with a long weekend as we will be closed on July 3 and 4. My wish to all of you is to have a safe and sunny holiday full of family, friends, food and fireworks. See you in the workspaces this month.

Shine On Firefly Sisterhood!  

On June 14, OffiCenters staff & members were in attendance at Illuminight,
a fundraiser supporting OneCommunity member The Firefly Sisterhood. The event featured local female chefs and restaurateurs that served mouth-watering foods and tasty treats. The night included inspirational stories and was truly
 illuminated when Kris Newcomer, Executive Director of The Firefly Sisterhood, shared they had nearly doubled their fundraising goal. Funds help connect women diagnosed with breast cancer to trained survivors that offer support, guidance & hope.
