This is just the first of many “This Week at Wesley” emails for the year! In case you’re new to our mailing list, I send out emails every weekend with the Wesley Foundation’s list of events being offered throughout the week. Some email reminders will also be sent out throughout the week by the hosts of the events. Also for your information: the Wesley Foundation is open daily from around 9:00 am till midnight. Feel free to do some work in Study Camp, play Rock Band in the gameroom, etc.
