    I really wish these things weren't so early. 7:00am is a pretty awful time to hold something like this.

      Tell me about it Jason! But fundraisers have such a hard time getting out of work that they're more likely to get a green light if they can be back on duty by 9. : )

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
