Notes From Lori
Just yesterday my sister said to me, "Have you written your July Notes?" and I thought, "Wait! What happened to June?" It was an action-packed month for all of us, but especially at Woodbury, where our Member Acquisition was
off the charts! I am thrilled to see all of the new faces joining our community. And did I mention that some of our new faces were furry? That's right! A few pups came in to cowork at our dog friendly workspace in Woodbury. Spike was tail-wagging happy! Stay tuned for our first YAPPY HOUR on August 3, where canines will rule the day. Bring your dog if they are quiet, socialized and on leash. I'm working on the dog rules now. I'm even more thrilled when familiar faces come in to use the space in the East Metro. Mark your calendar now for the Grand Opening on August 9, as it will be the event of the summer.
This month we will repeat  SLICE of Woodbury on July 17. It was a huge success in June as we had over 30 people in attendance. It's over the lunch hour and we serve the famous Red's Savoy Pizza, a St. Paul tradition. This is a MUST ATTEND event; bring plenty of business cards. And, check out my new headshot! Many people took a new picture at Woodbury during our event. Thanks to Dan Fenner and Print Arts Midwest who will be making the rounds to all locations in August (CoWorking Month) if you need an updated photo for only $35!  Our Picnic lunch at Union Plaza was the second most attended event last month. It was so successful that we will be having MORE events there. This is long overdue. Maybe SLICE of the North Loop? 
Our team at OffiCenters is very busy this summer welcoming new members at all of our locations. Just last week at PowerLunch, I was shocked to find no open seats in the coworking space at Minnetonka OffiCenter! Our first-floor workspace looks as good as it did when we moved in 2 years ago. We have come a long way in the West Metro.
You may have seen me walking the halls at Park with a contractor and big floor plans. Could this mean there is another remodel coming? I'm not saying a word . . . yet.
This is going to be a fun-filled, hardworking summer and so far, I am loving every minute of it. After 37 years I'm still as energized as ever. At least my mind is willing, my body . . . not so much. Thank goodness I have a fabulous and inspired team. Enjoy your midweek 4 th of July Holiday. Be safe and enjoy the sun! Can anyone believe that HALF of 2018 is behind us? I am looking for an epic ending for this year. Will there be more surprises in store? Wait and SEE!
