Glory Days 2012

Author:  Nick Lindberg

It's official, even on Facebook, the 2012 Glory Days Tour is happening July 19-22.  What is the Glory Days Tour?  Well, the Glory Days Tour is an adult initiative, created thanks to the thoughts and experiences of our STLF alumni.  It is similar to the Pay it Forward Tour, but is customized specifically for the adult audience.


Some specifics:


  • 4 days, Thursday to Sunday
  • 3 communities visited, participants stay in hotels
  • 3 service projects


Some outcomes:


  • Strengthened sense of purpose in self and in work
  • Professional development activities
  • Networking and relationship-building



This year there will be two Glory Days Tours hitting the road July 19th.  WHAT?!?!?!  Two?!?!?!  YEEAAAHHHHH!!!  Yes, after a huge success the first tour last year, STLF will be sending out two buses.  One bus will be departing from Minneapolis as well as a bus from Chicago.  Both buses will be heading to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to meet up for the ultimate glory days celebration in Houghton, MI.

The details for the Minneapolis trip are finalized and we wanted you, some of the most involved STLFer back in the day to be one of the first to know.  This years route will be:

  • Minneapolis, MN
  • Turtle Lake, WI
  • Ashland, WI
  • Houghton, MI

The core will be: Tami Huemoeller, Eric Larsen, Tricia Nelson, Timmy Schuster, and Nickers.  With a core like that, it has to be good.  Check out the GDT website for more info about the Tour and the core.

Registration will be live next Wednesday, February 29th.  Yup, you heard it right, that is Leap Year Day.  It only happens once every four years so you better seize the day and register while you can.  PLUS, you could win on of these AWESOME prizes if you are the:
