A gift to you all

To the members of the Pittsburgh Raw Food Group:

Many new members have been asking me why I don't charge a membership fee for joining the group. As many of you know, the fees to meetup.com can be quite expensive to run a meetup site. Well, when I decided to run the group, I decided to pay the fees as my donation to get the group up and running, and to keep it going.

We have always had many free pot luck gatherings throughout the year as members would offer their home or business as a hosting site. Sometimes, we are in need of hosting the meeting at a site that charges a fee. Our group has grown so large and with interesting presentations being offered, we have needed to use the conference room and other facilities to hold the meeting. Even libraries and churches want to charge us for using the meeting spaces. The conference room we have been using is ideal as it is centrally located.

Knowing all of this, if anyone has an idea of a good meeting site, please let me know.

We have Rhio of Rhio's Raw planning to come in to Pittsburgh to do a raw food demo and a talk on Genetically Modified Foods during the last weekend in May. She will be charging for this talk. IF anyone has a location in mind for this event, please let me know. If we need to use the conference room again, there will be a small charge for that as well

Please know that when a fee is charged for a meeting, the fees go to the facility or the speaker (if the speaker charges for the talk). I do not pocket any of the fees for the meetings.

Furthermore, I work to offer products that many of us use at discounted prices, to save everyone money. This is an added bonus to being a member of the group.

So, with that in mind, let me clarify that the if you are interested in a live blood cell analysis, the fee is $30 for a half hour session. This is part of my health practice. A few of you are welcome to have the analysis done during the meeting on Sunday. Otherwise, we will be setting up appointments both at the Micro Media Lab office and in my office in the North Hills over the next several days.

Please know that I try to make these meetings as fun and affordable as possible. I am always open for suggestions - so do not hesitate to contact me with new ideas.

Enjoy this amazingly beautiful weekend and I will see many of you on Sunday!
Peace,
Janet
