Silent Lunch at Wheaton Mall

Wheaton Mall

I was first introduced to this group after I attended some of the Silent Lunches when I first moved to the area 3 years ago. There was always a great crowd and signers of all levels enjoyed themselves. I'd like to bring back the "good old days" and restart these Silent Lunches that we once had. These first few Lunches will be a test run. If they are as popular as they were before, perhaps we can continue them for the foreseeable future. So, no matter what you're skill level is, come on out and meet some friendly folks!

For those of you who have been reluctant to travel to Silver Spring, Wheaton or DC, lets see how convenient this location is. We met in June 2014 and there are enough people interested to see how this goes as a recurring meeting, every two weeks on Tuesday.
