  11. May Monthly Meeting

    Hey all, sorry for the short notice post! Tonight is the first Wednesday of the month, so we will be having the monthly meeting this evening, in the same location as last month. It will be held at Children's Hospital, 2nd floor, in the Children's Theater. It will be from 7-9 ish. We will spend a portion of the meeting (maybe 20 minutes) taking a tour of the Children's Hospital, so that we can see the area/place and children we will be directly affecting and helping. Beyond that, we will also discuss upcoming events we would like to take place in, and begin a couple of committees to help keep things running smoothly. We look forward to having as many people on site as we can!!! May the 4th be with you!
  12. Monthly Meeting - May

    Sorry we haven't gotten something up here sooner! The monthly meeting (First Wednesday of every month) will be tonight, at 7 PM, in Children's Hospital. Same place as last month. For a portion (20-30 minutes) we will be taking a tour of the hospital, to see the places we will impact. Hope to see you all there! May the 4th be with you...
  13. Meeting Time and Location

    So Chris, Thaine and I met tonight (Thursday) to discuss a few things, goals, plans etc. I wanted to pop on here and start a discussion about our monthly meeting. The date we landed on is the first Thursday of the month, which means it will be April 7th. The plan is to have them at 7 p.m. First one will be at Portal. So that leads me to this question: Is everyone cool with first Thursday of the month at 7 p.m.? The plan will be even if you can't attend we're going to make every effort to include, especially since there is a couple of us who don't live in the state, but are a huge part of recruiting and money raised. TL;DR - Meeting is April 7th at 7 p.m. at Portal. Regular meetings will be first Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. Comments on locations and times are welcome and will be considered.
