All ages are invited to come whenever personal schedules allow. If you come, bring your own lunch and the hostess will provide dessert & drinks. There is no designated topic of discussion, but usually many ideas or concerns are raised. You do not need to attend regularly in order to join—come when you can or when you feel like it. We do ask attendees to let the hostess know so that she can prepare enough dessert & drinks for all. Contact person: Lee Patterson
