Hello, Annyong!

Welcome to the new members of the group! This update is for all members.

Events - There are more events on the calendar - in addition to us writing some songs (July 11), some other events are:

July 17: Summer Dinner Party Special Event: Since this Summer Dinner was announced last month, and it's been improved. We will have free giveaways, and a new speaker was just added to share with us about Korean-American journalism/reporting. RSVP here

July 24: Noraebang night w/Rockville Karaoke group - just announced! After weeks of planning with Jim's Rockville Karaoke group, we're set for July 24. The location has a full menu so we can eat there as well.

Last weekend we had great weather for our Sugarloaf Mountain walk as you can see in these photos.

New English Tutor Website:

I thought this service might be interesting for many of you - the new Say Mondo English Tutor service. Say Mondo helps non-native English speakers prepare for presentations/speeches by providing a grammar-corrected MP3 file of the speech read by a native English speaker. It is a site from one of our members - Aaron - and I met with him this week and convinced him to share the service as a free give-away at the Summer Dinner Party! Beside the lucky give-away winners, he also will give a 50% discount to members who want to try it anytime this month.
