    I felt bad coz I missed the group due to service changes on the F train. This was supposed to be my first meeting with you all. Good to hear that everyone had fun. I'll look forward to the next meeting.

    I had a great time. The island was beautiful. I felt like I had gone on a vacation far away. The group was very congenial, and the amount of exercise was just right. Loved the tram ride at the end. Thanks!

    Thank you, Tess. I had so much fun taking photos and meeting new friends. It was such a wonderful day. We should do this again when weather is nicer and have a picnic there! Thanks to Bob once again for another fine event.

    F Train Service Change: Really regret missing this. Unfortunately, F trains from Manhattan/Brooklyn are being rerouted to the M line starting at Rockefeller center, so no F service to Roosevelt Island heading into Queens. Tried two trains and both were rerouted. Hope those who made it had fun.

    Hi everyone: I've signed up for the Roosevelt Island trip, however, something came up, so I can't join the group. I wish all of you have a grand old time.
