August is fast approaching and for our AIE Community that means it’s time for Summer of Love. For those that are new to our community, Summer of Love is a week of fun filled events across all of AIE’s game divisions, all centered around the week of August 2nd.
Why is that date important to us? It’s Remembrance Day. It’s the day we all come together as one community to honor the lives of those we’ve lost throughout the year. It’s about remembering those we’ve lost and fellowship with those that are still here.
This year Summer of Love is running from Monday July 30th to Sunday August 5th. If you have any specific questions on the events, you can always ask the chairperson of the event or ask any officer in AIE Discord. Please keep in mind that these events are subject to change. We’ll keep you posted! I hope to see you all there!
