Monster Dash

A big thank you to all who came out in the cold and rain yesterday for the monster dash. It was so great to see new and old members working together. With your help we will receive $500 to help our team flourish this year. Thank you to all the parents and family members who came and helped out, you guys help make fundraisers possible.

Some of the senior millerbots went to homecoming! The theme was Hippies/1960’s and I think they did a pretty good job!

Guess Who’s Back… and Going to Have a Movie Night

All members are invited to a ‘welcome back’ screening of Spare Parts at the home of our beloved electronics captain Conor Lockwood this Saturday, October 10th at 6pm. The exact address and details about food will be emailed to team members soon. Make sure to remember blankets, sweaters, fold out chairs and anything else you need to be comfy watching a movie outside on an October night in Minnesota.

The season is off to a great start and the team is flourishing.
