Thanksgiving Week

Hello Everyone,

   This time of year it gets interesting scheduling Meetups. Many people are busy during the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas with Holiday preparations & activities and yet that is when some of our members need support the most. With this in mind, I have scheduled with Traverso's for the Tuesday just before Thanksgiving and plan on meeting again between the two Holidays. For those that are unable to attend this Meetup, I want to wish you a most Enjoyable and Happy Thanksgiving. For those that can, I look forward to seeing you on the 26th.

                                                                           Steve

There is no reason to feel nervous or intimidated about attending the meetups. I can assure you that you will feel welcome and will make many new friends.

    Hey folks, I thought I posted last night, but I reviewed your comments today and did not see mine, so I guess I did something wrong. Anyhow I wanted to thank you all for a great evening, I had a wonderful time. It was good to see new folks also. Thanks...
