</p><p>[size= 9.0pt]Firstly, I hope this email finds you well this holiday season.
</p><p>[size= 9.0pt]Welcome to our new members over the last few of months!
</p><p>[size= 9.0pt]My apologies at my lag in communication, things have been very busy for myself and even more so during the holidays.
</p><p>[size= 9.0pt]I am gearing up to be more apt about posting events in the Bay Area (and further) and I welcome anyone who would like to join Susan as an event coordinator. Please let me know if interested in that position or any other; as this group is getting larger and larger by the by of each month!
</p><p>[size= 9.0pt]Personally, when Eimear stepped down last Summer I did not want to see this Meetup group close forever. So I stepped up as organizer, and while my intent is fully here, I know I have not met my own goals of pumping more life and getting more members together like I had hoped. I am recently getting very active in the Gaeilge speaking community in San Francisco and the greater Bay Area, such as Berkeley, so this should bring a more positive active light to our group. Hats off to Eimear for starting this group and graciously staying with us!
</p><p>[size= 9.0pt]I encourage more members to be proactive as I've seen this last month with spurring ideas for meetups. And I also hope to find more of you checking in more often, my suggestion is at least once weekly, but at minimum at least once monthly. I'd hate for a great meetup opportunity to pass you by!
</p><p>[size= 9.0pt]And as your organizer, I want every member to know I listen to every suggestion with the utmost attention. While it may take a little while to get us roaring to great Irish craic, nevertheless it's here in my heart, and my hope is to share it with all of you soon!
</p><p>I wish everyone a wonderful holiday season!
This group is intended for those who are interested in Irish and Celtic Cultures. This group started as a meeting place for Irish Expats but has now grown to include all those interested in the way of Irish; music, gaeilge language, and any of those with an Irish connection.
All nationalities are are welcome. This is based in San Francisco but we will expand it to meet any of our members requests and wishes.
Whether new to San Francisco or a long time citizen, come along to a meetup for a pint or two and enjoy great craic and conversation!
