    Had a great time not only meeting new people with the same goals in mind but I am also learning more and more each time we meet! High fives to all who put this meeting together! Maybe during the warmer weather months, we can have some meetings outside in a picnic setting - that way we can burn off some of those calories we consume after eating ALL of the great food people bring to share!

    It will be helpful to have some ideas about what will be the focus since some of us did not
    attend the planning session !

    I have to give 5 stars just 'cause I'm excited to see the group engage in these visioning activities with real interest and enthusiasm, and develop projects and new relationships. It's a process that is ongoing, always unfolding and revealing new ideas.
