We’re (almost) famous!
There is an article on our Salt Lake City Spanish group in the local newspaper called The West View, which is a quarterly community newspaper that is being published again after 6 years of being out of publication. A copy of the article is in PDF format on our web site in the Files section at http://www.meetup.com/saltlakecityspanish/files/. So I am hoping that this article will go viral, and that pretty soon we will have various people and organizations knocking on our door seeking to sign us to long-term contracts and endorsement deals.
Seriously though, it feels good to get a little press for our group, and I would like to thank West View Media for including us in the first edition of the re-launch of this community newspaper. I wish them great success in their efforts to profile the communities on the West side of our city. Their mission statement says that they work to, “Strengthen community identity, increase civic involvement and foster social justice for the diverse people, businesses and organizations of West Salt Lake.”
Speaking of strengthening community, we have a fabulous night of camping planned for this coming Saturday, September 10, at Tanners Flat Campground (on the right side of the road just before you get to Snowbird Ski Resort). We don’t call it “Sólo en Español Camp Nite” for nothing – there will be no English allowed in the campground, and this will be a wonderful opportunity to be completely immersed in hearing and speaking Spanish. Bring your own tent, food, drink, and whatever else you would take for one night of camping; there are nice bathrooms on site with sinks and flush toilets, but no showers. We will meet at noon on Saturday at my house in order to travel up their together, but feel free to drop by the campground on your own for all or part of the time. Let me know if you plan to camp so that we can plan accordingly. Va a ser divertido!
