I just can't believe the response thus far to this meet-up group. Already 22 members and it has only been a week and a half since I set it up! This is incredible and so encouraging. Thank you to the people I have known for a while now, and to the new ones who I am looking forward to meeting! We have people from all across the state, a variety of ages, professions and topics of interest. I am very excited to work with all of you.
Now, the best thing you can do right now is to spread the word about this group to your friends. Please send an invite to anyone you think may be interested, or let me know their contact info and I'll invite them! Let's build this group and we'll really celebrate when we hit 100 people!
Next, I want a little feedback as to our first Meet-up. Since we have many members in the Portland area, out first meet up will be in Portland and will be in late September. Do people prefer weekday evenings, say 6:30pm to 8:00pm, or weekend afternoons? Please let me know when would be the best time for you to attend!
From there I hope to have other meet-ups in York county, one near Augusta and hopefully Bangor soon as well. The possibilities are endless.
Finally, THANK YOU so very much for joining up. I know we can make a difference by working together!
Do you love animals and hate to see them cruelly treated? If so, this group is for you! We'll be getting together all across Maine to talk about animal welfare issues and what you can do to help make Maine a more humane state! I'm Katie and I am the State Director in Maine for The Humane Society of the United States. Please join me as we celebrate animals and confront cruelty!
