JW and all,
Just to squelch any alarms before they sound, Colleen did not mean that she 
went to Mary Ellen's funeral, but rather to Mary Ellen's FATHER's funeral, 
who died after a long illness this past week.
Just thought I'd jump in here before anyone who knows Mary Ellen feared we 
had lost her!
And Toledo chapter sounds terrific, Colleen!

I won't make a habit of posting every chapter meeting but in light of our
new group in Toledo and as a result of what I perceive as great enthusiasm
and excitement down their, read on.

I do like to publish great and exciting news so keep it coming ok?
