Hi all, Carlos and I will be out of state on Saturday, but would very much appreciate a follow up post to update those of us who cannot be there sometime after the retreat with our yearly save the dates, etc.

Comment by Joan Bosson-Heenan on January 15, 2013 at 9:33am

Hi All,

I will not be able to attend the retreat due to a long standing prior engagement. I would like to hold the Annual Chatham Square Spring Clean-Up on March 23rd from 9am to 12pm and would like to try again to have a pot-luck or perhaps a lunch at the Boat House Cafe. Suggestions are always welcome.
