    It was an engaging time with plenty of good information explained to us by Professor Whiteson about the Higgs boson and what it means. It was a very casual and comfortable atmosphere.

    Remember, everyone, I may have cancelled the RSVPs but that is just because there is actually another website that we are asking folks to sign up on instead.
