    Dave,
    Thanks so much for posting this here as I think our Meetup is a good place for it. It looks like a great event--and only a block away from where I live. HOWEVER, the final City of Portland public budget hearing conflicts with this--and that's where I'll be. Maybe I can make it in time for the reception. . .

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.
