March 7, 2009 Meeting

Our March meeting was primarily a social gathering with no formal program or speaker scheduled. An open forum discussion round table group was held shortly after announcements and business items were concluded. The group welcomed several new members this evening.

It was again announced that on May 2, 2009, the Unitarian Universalist Church is having their annual auction and will be using the entire church facility. Accordingly, the May 2009 meeting will be cancelled.

The next dinner at Bowman's Tavern is planned for 5:00 PM before the April 4th meeting. Kara will be arranging the pre-meeting dinners, please contact her if you would like to attend.

Our next scheduled meeting is Saturday April 4, 2009. Laura Pople, Chairperson of the New Jersey GLBTI Coalition, will be speaking on the mission, purpose, and goals of the Coalition. Subsequent discussion will focus on collaboration to the mutual benefit of our organizations. NJSG is a member of the NJ GLBTI Coalition. An open forum discussion group will also be held after the presentation for members interested in a focused round table venue.

Leah Edwards, President
