Exciting BBC Notices, News, Events

OfficeXpats at 4th Of July – New Member Discounts: During 4th Of July festivities OfficeXpats will once again have a booth, featuring a kid activity that has been wildly popular in the past: making juggling balls (also can be used as a stress ball) with balloons and bird seed. We are trying out a new squishable filling called “Orbeez” too. Please stop by the booth with your kids (and grownups are welcome to make them too). Please tell your friends to check out OfficeXpats, at the booth or for real in the Pavilion. We will be offering a “first month at half off” to new members, regardless of the level of membership.
Thanks, and I’m excited about our first Fourth in a while!   –Leslie (
