    I enjoyed the luncheon and the exhibit very much. It was nearly impossible to see the dancers from the shoulders down, but their arm/head movements were wonderful. The music was wonderful, too.

    Hello,

    I am planning to drive to the National Gallery of Art; I live in McLean, 10 minutes from the Parkway. Would anyone be interesting in carpooling? Although I am on wait list for cafe lunch, I would be willing to leave at anytime to arrive at either 1 pm or 2 pm.

    I certainly would like to attend. Will you be able to notify me about a cancellation even as late as Friday, the 12th? This would be a great start to my birthday celebration week.

    All, I have permission to invite eleven (11) of our 60+ group to the Garden Cafe for lunch. Owing to the large number of people attending -- abt 45. Please confirm if you are coming to cafe. Others may come but will have to find a place in the main cafe unless any of the 11 cancel the Cafe. Please be there prior to 1 PM to be seated.

    If not attending lunch, we can meet the rest of our group at the Mezzanine exhibition. This should be fun. These are on the Cafe list as of now:

    Curd, John; Douglass, Jeanne; Kessler, Elaine ; Lee, Paulette; Pence, Peggy; Schmitt, Grace; Eksler, Faina; Martino, Janet; Schaefer, Sandra and Levin, Isabel.

    Reed, Barbara is joining us after Cafe.

    These are on wait-list for cafe:

    Tran, Hannah; Pinkston, LaQuita; Welch, Jane; Walt; Gladys; Janet;
    and Rife, Becky.

    For those later additions not shown. Please register and join us for the exhibition and ballet.
