WEST Weekly

Hello WESTies,

Happy terrific Tuesday everyone! Fun fact: Tuesday gets its English name from the Old English Tiwesdæg and the Middle English Tewesday, meaning ‘Tiw’s Day.” Tiw was the Norse God of Single Combat, Victory, and Heroic Glory. Also spelled Týr, this is a name of a familiar manufacturer of competitive swim gear.
