We would love to have you!  Survey results will be shared and plans will be made to do some exciting new things in our immediate future.  If you are interested in getting involved with a new program such as regular informal fun gatherings for all ages, a book discussion group, or a Chalice circle, please do plan to attend!   YOU are what really matters!
