“ My first meeting. It is a group that is very friendly and makes all guests welcome. Combining it with "great speakers", what more could one ask for? Everytime I attend HOST meetings, I always enjoy and learn so much. Today, was an action packed morning. The Magician was terrific, however, I am still trying to figure how he knew the answers. Perhaps, it was his trusty sidekick Larry who helped with the answer. The gift exchange was a real hoot. The clutching and grabbing of gifts was hilarious and I still want my "infamous "in a fog" coffee from Bean Around the World, in Chinatown. Well, it really is worth a trip to chinatown for chinese food and coffee. As usual, the coffee and goodies from Cedarhill were great. Service super! And,Geoff at Cedarhill is still working on the "gluten free" goodies for our next meeting. Merry Christmas to you all..........and I'll see you next year! ”
