At the next gathering, let's get together and see if we can divy up some of the needed jobs (i.e. an email list, website, gathering places, etc). Our next cohort meeting will be on Monday, June 12th @ 7PM. We will meet in Panera Bread at 279 Troy Road in Rensselaer (click here for a map and directions). Bring your questions and let's have a good discussion! New faces are ALWAYS welcome. If you have any questions contact Josh at 518-522-5483 or jbrower3@nycap.rr.com. Grace and Peace.
