Exercising regularly helps you keep an active mind! A tip to help build this routine would be to work out early in the morning before it escapes your to-do list.
Be a PAID MEMBER or BUY A SHIRT! Find a Finance director (Stephanie or Kaylee) at the meeting to pay. Shirts are $15 and membership is $20 for one whole year!
This year’s shirt! What screams “Davis” more than a squirrel on a bike?
