Thanks to everyone who responded to the member poll that I sent out in
March - it has given me some good data. Here is a quick summary of some of the
- There is still a pretty even split between folks primarily interested in
potlucks and folks primarily interested in going out to restaurants. We will
continue to alternate each month.
- About half the respondents did not have a preference for a particular day
of the week; those that did preferred Saturday night or Sunday lunch, so we will
focus on using those time slots when possible.
- It was suggested that we aim for a consistent time each month to meet, so
we will aim to meet on the third weekend of each month (pending restaurant,
potluck host, or picnic shelter availability).
- There is significant interest in "educational activities" - speakers
and/or movies. Janice Church and I will be working toward making this a more
regular element of our gatherings. If you can help out with this or if you have
some specific suggestions, please let me know.
That's about it for now. We hope to see lots of you on Memorial Day
Kevin & Diane
