P-l-e-a-s-e do NOT respond "No" if you can't attend--it creates too much unnesscessary email on my end. If you RSVP "Yes"--pls indicate where you live in the comment box (for carpooling purposes--street parking is limited). Golden Gate Transit and Muni are also excellent ways to get there. Thankx!, Morna
