[Ohio-talk] More on CVG

Marianne, 
There has been much conversation among a few of us in the chapter regarding
interaction with various entities at CVG.  
In an effort to maintain a united effort -- and a united message -- I would
like to meet with you to coordinate this and other efforts. 
I'm traveling right now, but will give you a call when I get back next week.

By the way, when I read your message reagrding the exchange student, I
wondered why you and Paul didn't just get passes and walk with him to the
gate.  Sometimes, it's not so much about independence as it is about family
and farewells and all that jazz.
Maybe I'm just feeling sentimental because I get to see my own family all
too rarely, but thought I'd throw the alternative thought out there!

Talk soon.

Best,
Deborah

Thanks!  I will talk with Air Serv tomorrow.  I don't know what the response
will be but we would provide the training free.
