Our chats have been temporarily postponed
March 5th - Get Acquainted Night.
This is our debut chat night and we thought it would be a nice idea to get to know our host, Jim Mckay, as well as each other. This will be a great evening to discuss ideas for upcoming events and suggest guests and topics of interest. This will be an open-mike night, meaning that all visitors in the chatroom will be able to talk with each other. We hope you join us for this friendly chat session -- bring your humor, your concerns and your suggestions!
