We had a wonderful annual rap session and potluck centered around the theme of dealing with the communication challenges we experience during the holidays. Ideas, experiences and discussions were held helping all of us find strategies for coping and getting the most joy possible when faced with large group settings.
Our November meeting is fast approaching! Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, our next meeting will be this coming Saturday, November 18.

We are all here together to help so come and join us to get your holiday season off to a great start!
