MKEPUG Needs your help!

Hey everyone!

I wanted to say how sincerely thankful I am for all of our members on this list.�� With your help, we not only created the first Milwaukee PHP Users Group, but have been a success and a model for other groups.�� We've been recognized as a very successful new comer to the land of meetups.�� It's because of all your participation, hard work, and presentations that we've gotten this far.��

Did you know that at the end of December, we'll be celebrating our 1 year anniversary?�� Yep - we're that young!�� Woah I know.�� It's pretty amazing what a group of amazing Milwaukeeans, milwaukens, milwaukians, ... um... MKE'ans... anyway - what a great group of YOUGUYS can do when you set your mind to it.

What's coming up next? Well we're experimenting with the way we're running our group, the frequency and days of meetups, and the content included.�� We need you to keep coming and keep being as dedicated as you are.�� I know that not everyone can make it every time - but keep RSVP'ing either way so we can get a good idea.�� Every time you RSVP, Joel adopts a kitten. (He now has 27 kittens and is signed up for Hoarders.... jk)

We do need your help though.�� First of all, we need you to spread the word.�� Tell everyone you know about the group.�� Share the fun you've had attending the group - or if you haven't been able to, tell others to take your place :)��

Second, meetups will always be free.�� We do incur costs, however.�� This means we need Business sponsorships.�� Do you know a business which would be willing to step in and give a few bucks to our organization with the exchange of having a platform of a group of eager PHP minds to talk to?�� Or, better yet, are you a millionaire and just can't decide if you want to buy a Bentley or fund MKEPUG till 2120?�� (Um paypal has a limit though.. private check? bar of gold?)

Anyway, I look forward to seeing all of you at the next meetup.�� Please continue to join us as we enhance our group, experiment, and find the way to fully solidify our motto: 'Best People. Best Practices.'
