I’m the slackeriest of all the unpaid employees of the Women Thinking Free Foundation. Over the last week and a half we’ve hosted a great talk by Jen McCreight on May 23 and held a pretty bad ass counter protest at the Autism One anti-vaccination rally in Chicago’s Grant Park on May 26. If you read any other skeptical blogs besides Skepchick, or read the Chicago Tribune, you probably heard about them. But not here… you know, where the president and founder of the organization blogs.
I’m going to play the only card I’ve got on this one – I just had a baby. May 20! She was delivered by c-section and spent 5 days in the NICU. She showed up a week earlier than scheduled. We’re still catching up on everything we didn’t get done because we thought we’d have extra time… and I’m still healing from surgery. I HAVE AN EXCUSE! GET OFF MY BACK! (Also, I’m out of oxycontin… if you have a spare prescription pad, email me.)
Anyway, I’ve been slacking and popping pain killers for the last week and a half, the WTF board of directors asked me to start pulling my weight and promote our bad ass behind-the-scenes FermiLab tour fundraiser on June 12.
You’ll meet at 10:00am the front reception desk at Wilson Hall, get an intro to Fermilab, go on a guided walk-through tour of the Linear Accelerator building and the 15th floor of Wilson Hall, and a Q&A with a real live Fermilab woman scientist! Yes! A woman and a scientist in ONE BODY! That’s certainly worth your $30!
Then, after you’re done at Fermi, you’re going to head over to Gino’s East in St Charles for pizza! For free*!
(*with purchase of $30 tour ticket)
All you have to do is buy a ticket at our online store and show up at Wilson Hall. Tickets are limited to 40 people (kids 10 and older are welcome) and must be purchased in advance.
10:00am, Saturday June 12
$30 – includes tour and lunch at Gino’s East
