The new year brings new opportunities. We all know that keeping our New Year’s resolutions are nearly impossible, so this checklist might give you some ideas that you might want to do! Along with the checklist, we supplied some opportunities to fulfill some of the events in and around Memphis. We want to see all the things that you do this year, so keep this checklist and mark off events as you do them, then submit pictures to the Gryphon Gazette via Instagram and Twitter with #NewsGryphsBucketList!
