The next weeks will have a theme. One of us may be in charge to either present
the idea and/or put forth thoughtful questions. The next FIRST Wednesday of the
month, we'll start with the social hour again. You can invite friends to join at any
We will observe Safe Conversation Rules to respect and protect each other. If you
