WU SHEN TAO 3RD ANNUAL PLAYFUL DRAGON GATHERING
We are looking to have this year’s celebration at our usual place in Silver Spring at the Indian Springs Terrace Park facility. It is located at 9717 Lawndale Drive, Silver Spring MD 20901. We will meet at 1:30pm -6 PM on Sunday July 16th
Feel free to invite friends, families, students and teachers from the area. Join us for food, demos, games, stimulating conversation, and an impromptu live music jam performed by the attendees. There is usually a push hands group, a discussion group, and a play area nearby for children to climb and run around in. There is an indoor facility with bathrooms and a kitchenette and open areas outside for cooking, playing, and enjoying the weather. It is always a lot of fun and we encourage you to keep the 3rd Sunday in July available to come join us. We will still have AM classes that day so come work out and then join us for fun in the sun! Please RSVP so that we can prepare properly! A somewhat accurate headcount helps us make sure we have enough fun for everyone! Volunteers for setup and breakdown sincerely appreciated.
See you all then!!

NEW WEB SITE UP- PLEASE SIGN IN!
Our newly designed web site is up and running at present. Although most of the information has been set up; small additions to text, video, and pictures will be added to make the school’s curriculum and goals more accessible. New elements to the site include a sign up contact page for those wanting to receive our newsletters and announcements, we’ve also added more videos to give examples of the various arts that we teach. Schedules of our Takoma Park as well as our Gaithersburg locations are now online. We plan to get the members only page set up soon. This page will allow members access to areas of the site where one may find articles, videos and archival information concerning the programs taught as well as historical information related to internal martial arts. We also plan to have online payment options available for those persons seeking to sign up for introductory classes, or to buy uniforms, books, or to pay for classes. We also humbly accept suggestions as to how we may improve the site so that it may be easier and more usable to current and future members.

QUOTES OF THE MONTH
Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
Try not to be a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.
The most important single ingredient in the formula of success is knowing how to get along with people.
