2010 is closely approaching. It's hard to believe that another decade is closely ascending upon us. I hope 2010 will be filled with hope and promise for a great year.
2010 brings Square Pegs a new place to meet. We will be meeting at the Henrietta Volunteer Ambulance (HVA) on Calkins Road in Henrietta the first TUESDAY of each month, from 7:00-8:30 pm. This is a change from our old meeting day of Monday. Why change our meeting day? Monday was proving to be difficult for many folks responding to our meeting invitations AND Monday evenings are already booked up at the HVA. Thus, the change in day. I'm hopeful this will be a day that is convenient for most if not all.
For our first meeting of 2010, we will be having "round table" discussions. Diana and I thought it may be a good way to bring in the new year. We will discuss our triumphs from the last year, and will talk about future meetings, recommendations for speakers, topics, outings. We did this last January and the January before with great success. We do have a special speaker booked for February.
Some Good News: My personal favorite writer, Rudy Simone, has just completed/published her latest book called "Aspergirls". I strongly urge our female Aspies and anyone with a female friend or relative with Aspergers to obtain this book. Ms Simone is a very gifted writer and has a great way of touching us where we live. I promise you will not be disappointed. Go to www.Help4aspergers.com for a listing of all her books. There is something for everyone!
We sincerely hope each of you had a blessed holiday and a safe and happy New Year, and hope to see you soon.
Deborah and Diana

Square Pegs was founded in 2008 by Deborah Tedone out of her desire to find friends for her daughter. Over time, Square Pegs evolved into a group dedicated to the Adult with Asperger's Syndrome and is now by and for people with Asperger's, or "aspies." It is a place where adults with Asperger's can gain support without being judged by rules that we didn't make and may not know.
Please note that this is not an education group, and all meetings are for people on the autism spectrum only. People without Asperger's who would like to learn more about it may go to Deborah's email address with specific questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
