I have a few things to announce for the summer at Four Bridges!
First, we’ve welcomed the Born This Way Foundation Second Life to the organizations housed on Four Bridges. orb Thursday is the contact for the group and they are headquartered on the South Sim on the East Side. You can join the group through my profile or orb’s and I hope that you will. Here’s a link to their website so that you can see who they are and what they do. http://bornthiswayfoundation.org/
I think you’ll agree that this is an org that matches the goals of the Four Bridges Project and I hope you’ll join me in welcoming them.
Here’s the SLurl to find their HQ in SL on 4B.http://slurl.com/secondlife/Four%20Bridges%20Project/201/178/32
Also, the Four Bridges Book Club is ready for launch with some really exciting updates! For those of you that I’ve spoken to about the club, we decided on “The Virtual Life of Fizzy Oceans” to launch our club.http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10030092-the-virtual-life-of-fizzy-oceans
I have spoken with the author, David Ross and he has agreed to come in and help us launch the book club! Wooot!! I loved this book. I related to the premise, the ideals and the people. It was like coming home so I’m really excited to share this great opportunity with you! The club will be meeting on Saturdays at 10am SLT beginning July 14th at the SpeakEasy on Four Bridges. Book Club Blog can be found here: http://fourbridgesbookclub.blogspot.com/
Another project that will be launched this month is the “What Can We do In A Year?” Project. This group will meet at various times and will be focused on changing something in our lives, our activism, our characters or whatever for one year. How much can we accomplish in one year if we’re dedicated, supported and working together? Let’s find out. This is a very informal group. I’ve set up a blog where we can talk to one another and check in occasionally. Here’s the link for that blog: http://whatcanwedoinayear.blogspot.com/?zx=25e8f0921f1b0e4f
We’re hard at work coming up with some education projects for the fall and have some opportunities that are really starting to kick up the duct! I’ll share more as I have the details but for now, I want to concentrate on making it a great summer at 4B. For those of you that haven’t explored for a while, we’ve made some MASSIVE changes. There is an orientation area, a street fair, tour horses and many other interactive exhibits. Artee has created an incredible exhibit. Links to all of the places can be found in the resource Center.

The Four Bridges website is undergoing some changes but is back up. Fourbridgesproject.org
I will be adding over the summer so make sure to check frequently.
I’m really excited about the changes on 4B. After a long and thoughtful hiatus, it feels good to feel focused again. I hope that you will all share your ideas and thoughts about our future.
Hope to see you at Red’s poetry reading on Sunday!
