Schools out, but we are back to work! There is a lot to do before the season begins. We have to reorganize the shop, update the website, come up with game pitches, and start our annual school supply drive.
Last week the Gearheads went to local high schools and middle schools on their locker clean-out day and placed boxes labeled “gently used school supplies” in the hallways. At the end of the day, we went around and sorted through the boxes as well as the recycling/trash bins to collect what was salvageable to give to schools in Detroit that need them most.
This week we are working on our game pitch: members of the team are refining it and others are coming up with a witty and cool name for it. We are getting ready to present it to FedEx representatives on July 1.
It's good to be back with the team and enjoy each others company before the seniors go on their way to college this year.
We are all Gearheads!
