While half of the attendees were at the zoo the other group was visiting Sweetwater Sound. Many thought this was going to be a visit to a "music" store but found a truly unique experience. Sweetwater started as a small instrument business and has grown to one of the largest in the world. Their facility is the first "green" business of its size in northern and is 75% self sufficient. Along with instruments Sweetwater is a complete recording studio and specializes in sound equipment of all kinds. In addition, employees and the general public can also enjoy a fine restaurant and an activities area including games, computerized realistic golf and a complete exercise and workout area. My guess is they have very little employee turnover.
Finally, I should announce that all current officers were re-elected at the business meeting except for Sandy Hahn who had completed her third year as secretary. Congratulations go to Beth Bailey our new secretary.
Remember to use the new membership renewal form with her name and address when sending in your dues.
