How about some Sonoma County Fun????
The first SparkPeople convention is over, but the rallies are just beginning. What IS a Spark Rally?
http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivation_articles.asp?id=1229 For those of you who missed it, we've been called to Spread the SPARK in our own local communities!
CatherineKirby and I have communicated with each other and agree, this could be a blast. We'd like your help and suggestions for finding a way for Sonoma County Sparkers to meet each other, support one and other, and just celebrate our community and healthy lifestyle pursuits.
Let's put faces to our SparkNickNames!
A few initial ideas might be: Meeting for a walk in Howarth Park in Santa Rosa, possibly clad in our SparkWear. Perhaps followed by a "Bring your favorite SparkRecipe to Share" Potluck Picnic
We Need You and Your IDEAS!!!!!
We don't have a time frame planned out yet, though the SparkPeople suggested date of June 28th MIGHT be a bit soon. We welcome and need your feedback, suggestions, and volunteerism. We will start a Discussion Forum on our team page so that we can look at some ideas to see if we can work something out ASAP. Maybe we can do more than one over the Summer!
Help us to brainstorm, or should I say BrainSpark?
Let us know what you think!, login and post to the Discussion forum today! Let’s show the SparkPeople community the never ending Spark of the Sonoma County Team!
Thanks to all of us for inspiring and supporting each other!
Spread the Spark!
Mary aka TLN-NOW, and CATHERINEKIRBY

Kick Off Summer with the Show Your Spark Weekend
From now through the end of Summer, SparkPeople wants you to help "Spread the Spark" by taking pictures of yourselves in your SparkPeople apparel and going to SparkRallies in your area. Whether you are on vacation, strolling through your neighborhood, swimming at the local pool or getting fit outside, we want you to share your summer fun with us.
We've created a Spread the Spark Summer Team where you can post fun ideas and healthy summer activities. We’d also love to see pictures of you and your SparkFriends Spreading the Spark, so be sure to upload them in the Team! We may feature some of these photos on the dailySpark or elsewhere on the site (so you could become a Spark Celebrity)!
