winter family/group get-together

Hi Everyone,

After sending out a random interest poll to several group members, I can say with certainty that we have more than enough interest for a "winter" family/group get-together! The entire Plumas Street gym will be available to our group on SATURDAY, December 6th, from around 3:30-5:30PM (Thanks RJ!). We will be having an indoor potluck and BBQ (available on the "patio"), plus we would like to have some family activities available (contact me or RJ if you have any good ideas for fun in that very large gym). I'm just letting you know early so that you can be sure to MARK YOUR CALENDARS. More details on this gathering to follow in future emails.

Also, due to the holidays, we will not be having our "end of the month" support group meetings in November or December. However, if someone wants to meet on an alternate date, say on TUES. December 2nd from 6:30-8:30PM at the Golden Valley Raleys event center (because we have it reserved), please let me know.

Lastly, there might have been some confusion about our group's website (since there was some recent email activity from a former group member about another website). Our official ASGONN website is Gynia's at www.asgonn.blogspot.com . This is where you can refer people to who might have an interest in joining our Yahoo group forum.

THANKS!!...............................Becky
