Hi Andrea,

I have a meeting at 5:00, not sure what time it will end. I will do my best to be on the call. If I am not there make sure to let the folks know that I am working on an open mic series in New Bedford. The kickoff is November 1 at a fundraiser to get the word out. I mentioned this awhile ago on LANES, we are taking the first steps. I will let everyone know when the dates, other than 11/1 are firm.

Thanks for the personal invite :) I will do my best to chime in.
