June Weekly Highlights 
June is finally here and we're ready to play! Our biggest players are Bob the Builder™ and his entire Can-Do Crew who are currently helping aspiring builders and their families get the job done in the  Bob the Builder™ - Project: Build It  traveling museum exhibit. We know that you will want to visit Bob in Sunflower Valley all summer long, so we are offering a  Bob the Builder™ Summer Membership Special  available for purchase now through June 30th. I know you will particularly enjoy the days that Bob makes special appearances to meet kids, pose for photos, and make lots of dreams come true!


The biggest event we have planned for you happens on the first day of summer! The Bumble Bee Bash Children's Festival at The Gateway on Saturday, June 21st is our signature fundraiser, as it is critical to providing much-needed funds for museum improvement. We're expanding the Bash this year to make it a day-long event that celebrates downtown Salt Lake City, and offers the opportunity to play and learn along with bouncy houses, food trucks, cultural presentations and youth entertainment, in addition to the beloved Bash experiences, such as face painters, balloon artists and magic shows.


Also in June, we are highlighting the importance of STEM by hosting the Science Olympiad Fun Day Science Festival on the 7th, making lasting memories with Dad during the Father's Day DadVenture on the 14th and joining forces with local cultural organizations for Summer Camps galore starting with the Natural History Museum on June 23rd! Join us for all these exciting events and bring your friends in on the fun too!


As you can see, it is important to us to give your family an extensive range of early-childhood experiences. I'm proud of our staff and the work that they do every day to continue to bring you high-quality programming. June 30th marks the end of our fiscal year 2014, so please join me in thanking the DG team by stopping  by to congratulate them on another successful year! As for you, dear members and friends, I can't say thank you enough for the trust you've placed in us.


Have a happy summer, and don't forget the sunscreen!
