January: Go down memory lane with a nostalgic post on something from the Outing Club you loved
Februar: Share one way you live, think, travel differently as a result of your experience with your Outing Club
Marc: Post a photo from an adventure with a short description on what the experience was like
April: Share a photo of someone you met through the Outing Club (community member, outing club member, Outing Club advisor) who had an impact on you with a note on how they’ve affected you
