It may seem strange to welcome you and to your own house--it's a special recognition of the newcomers who have joined recently (yay!), to encourage newbies and regulars to keep coming, and to have you feel that this is your own place where you can feel comfortable (also yay!).
So, FOUR things:
1. Check out all the photos from past events--amazing cross-section of lovely, friendly people.
2. One of my first messages as organizers was that I paid to maintain this site. The group's first attendees decided that I would receive $1 one time only to make up the fee. I'm $30 short, so future contributions will be most welcome. Regulars who have already paid have been generous and need not pay again. Remember, $1 one time only. Hope that's still ok, friends.
3. We've been changing locations but this month, we'll take a poll and settle on a regular venue. Voice your opinion...in Italian, of course!
4. Check this out too--great field trip opportunity and really nice connection to an academic as well as a business source.
