Hello group;
Would you know of a Meet-up that might take place on a week-day morning or
early afternoon starting in October?  Or would anyone like to attend at
that time of day on the East side or near there?  Please let me know.  I'm
an advanced speaker and could help the newcomers.  Deirdre Halat
