    Sorry this rule was established when he posted the last event 56 people signed up only 12 showed up and no one bother to change their rsvp, text or call. They all pulled a "no show"

    Hi everyone please see the description of the event at the bottom. It states that an email would be sent and you have to respond. The email was sent and only a handful of you responded.

    Hello Everyone,
    The confirmation email was sent to all members who signed up. Many of you have not responded, the list has been updated. We always send an email to our waiting list for two more, just in case. Please reply to this message if able to attend.

    Thank you everyone for your email and messages, All who are not coming please change your rsvp regardless of how close to the event. Please do not make this my responsibility, also please do not keep my members who are available from coming.

    I received and e-mail saying:
    Act quickly! A spot just opened up for Evenings & Weekends in New York City for "Meals on Wheels | Upper West Side." Say you're going before someone else does.

    Where do I answer YES. I can't change where is says...I'm on waiting list. Please help. I so wanna do this.

      Soray, please be patient. Most likely, somebody from the same wait list had signed up for the spot before you did, that's why you are still on the waitlist. Olisa might also be busy today, hence she has not checked her email yet and give you a reply. There is no point for posting every hour. Your similar comments will flood everybody's mailbox if you continue to do so!

    Hi all, I have to mention this before I go through the list. Last week I had too many people who (1) sent message but failed to change their RSVP and (2) did not do anything other than pull a no show. (3) Showed up incredibly late. I am sorry but I am going to have to pull you off the list. I have members who are interested in attending. I have to make them first priority. I already see many of you on the list!

  • Olisa

    Hi Everyone, Please note that there are people who have already contacted me from the last Meals on Wheels that would like to attend. When cancelling I ask that you please cancel you RSVP and allow members to attend.

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.
