Wild Apricot Newsletter June 2012

Happy Canada Day, Happy 4th
of July...and Happy Birthday WA!

The beginning of July is always a busy time for our North American
customers -- Canadians are celebrating on July 1, and Americans are
celebrating on July 4. 

We're celebrating here at Wild Apricot too -- it's our 6th Anniversary, and we have grown to over 5,000 paid subscribers!

We'll be having a small party in Toronto. If you're in the area and can join us, RSVP here (space is limited). Obviously, many of you are far away, but if you'd like to leave us a note, we'll display it at the party.

Hope all our readers have a safe and happy summer.
