per Academiam omnia memoranda sunt! Let's make some memories!
Get ready for a whirlwind of an amazing time in the next three weeks! We'll have events, field trips, classes, meals, shenanigans, and more... And you won't want to forget all the awesome things that happen at Academy! So:
If you have a camera that you're comfortable using, bring it with you!
And then when you return to the internet after Academy, you can put your favorite pictures on Facebook and Instagram and Twitter and Gmail :-)
In addition, we'll be producing an awesome DVD yearbook - aptly called Memoranda - to preserve these memories. Once Academy starts, I'll look for a few volunteers to help make slideshows to put onto the DVD. And in order to make those slideshows, we'll need pictures of all the awesome things that happen. If you're taking pictures at Academy, consider sharing them with the Memoranda team!
