MOTM June, 2017

Post by Gravy » 01 Jun 2017, 00:53

The member of the month for June, 2017, is ylisa7!

After joining OBC in May of 2014 (happy bookclub birthday!), ylisa dove into the site. Active in many forums, she's even the member behind one of my favorite threads: What's The Last Book You Added To Your "To Read" List?.

Offline, you're likely to find her in her garden, or store (is it open yet? :lol: ), or maybe making some delicious food stuffs for her family.

Online, you used to be able to find her most often in the community forum, but her hobbies of remodeling, camping, and generally having more energy than the rest of us combined keep her busy. Hope you find time to visit occasionally. :wink:

With all of this I think it's fair to say that she's the most active member of OBC. Offline, if not always online.

So let's all congratulate ylisa7 for being our June Member of the Month!
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

The greater the power, the more dangerous the abuse.

Wow...thank you so much for the honor of being member of the month. That is really nice and thank you Gravy for the recap. Still busy doing things. Store is full of stuff, lol. June is a good month as my So and I are getting married on July 7. We've known each other over 40 years and been together for 20. It's time :lol:



I'll be back next week to catch up on the books that I have been reading. I have a time limit on the computer and I am almost out :shock:



Thanks again everyone :)
