What's New?


Many of you have written back telling me you had a great time at both the Fine Arts Building event downtown (visiting with artists, musicians, gallery owners over wine and goodies) and the photographic fundraising event in the suburbs... I'm glad to hear you had fun! Now onto more fun...


Many have indicated you would be interested in attending an event where we rent a limousine, have wine, cheese and little hors d'oeuvres while cruising along the lakefront. So I scheduled it! Now it seems you are slow to respond or are sitting on the fence. Any how, money and rsvp's for limo ride are needed by Wednesday or I will have to cancel the event and lose the $200 deposit I had to put down on the limo in order to secure the date.

Here is a new swap group I think many of you may find fun. There are events for CLOTHING SWAPS, TOOL swaps, Book swaps, toys and kid's pjs, nawty nighties, SIZZLING HOLIDAY GLAM wear, and decorative holiday items.

Don't forget to visit the sponsors (found in the left hand column of the group's home page) who help to keep our groups afloat. Keep in mind while 'perks' offer no remuneration to the group itself to help support it, I still have hand chosen many perks so that you, the members can benefit from the discount/deals they offer!



Upcoming Events:


Visit the group site (link at bottom of this email) to check out the new events being listed and updated.


I have added Coupon/Gift Card Exchanges and 'Conversation Cafe' to most of our 'VISIT OVER COFFEE' events being held in both the city and the suburbs.


(During the first 20 minutes you are free to hand out or swap any)


*Coupons you clipped that you might not be able to use. (ones you think would be worth the other attendee's time to redeem)


*Gift Cards which you either purchased, received as gifts or as comps that are either NEW or have a remaining balance left on them. (these you can barter for) So dig them all out of your kitchen junk drawers, your nightstands or your wallets and put them to good use!


The 'Conversation Cafe' portion will be added to some of the 'VISIT OVER COFFEE' events. What is it you ask?


A semi-structured interplay between attendees where we open up the conversation to entice free thought and strong listening. We will assemble in small groups and there will be topics which we may or may not stay on. The purpose is to get you to THINK about all the stuff that is going on in the world and to give you a grasp on other people's viewpoints, perhaps changing yours a bit, or perhaps you changing theirs. It usually leads to some lively discussions!


Oh yeah, a reminder... for the suburban coffee at IKEA I have gotten permission for my members to get free coffee, tea, or soft drinks from the beverage fountain!
