And welcome new members! You joined us at a very special time as next month, Polyamorous NYC is having their biggest Poly Pride Event of the year!Poly Pride: Picnic and Rally
Yes! I am talking about the Polyamorous NYC Annual Poly Pride: Picnic and Rally
. Now, this is a whole weekend event starting with a Super Massive Cuddle Party on Friday Oct. 9th
followed by the Poly Pride: Picnic and Rally on Saturday Oct. 10
. To check out the info on the Polyamorous NYC website please click here
or go to www.poly-nyc.com .
You are welcome to attend the cuddle party at your leisure or post a message on the Message Board to see if anyone would be interested in going. As for the Poly Pride: Picnic and Rally, you can now RSVP to meet Dan, our great Assistant Organizer, and other New York Polyamory Meetup members at a designated location (click here
for details) prior to attending the picnic and rally so that you can all go together. I have noticed that some of you have already RSVPed. I'd like to thank Dan for getting the group together!Donations
This brings me to my next subject: money. I'd like to thank all of you who donated money this and last month. I received a total of $18 in donations from our members which accounts for the month of September and some of October. As you may already know, your organizer is charged $12 per month to keep the New York Polyamory Meetup Group on Meetup.com. Your donations help defray the costs. So thank you for keeping the meetup going! Attendance and Upcoming Events List
Oh! But what would the New York Polyamory Meetup Group be without the attendance, participation, and continuous involvement of its many members! Over the past two years, as we just came upon the second anniversary of my taking over the group, I have to say that I've had the pleasure and gift of having Assistant Organizers and Members who have great commitment and dedication to the group. I would like to take a moment to thank all of you, *sniffle*, both in the general meetup group and specifically in the women's group.
In essence, you are it. Understandably, we all have busy schedules and many things we love to do. Nevertheless, we would be more than happy to see you or get to meet you at one of our upcoming events!

Please, please, use the message board! Some of our members are using the message board, but are left hanging . . . it seems. Lastly, our Women's Poly Group continues to meet monthly, so ladies, please join us or contact Sylwia, your Organizer, if you wish to be placed on an alternative mailing list for the Women's Poly Group.
Thank you for being part of the group.
