Our August 7, 2010 meeting marks the groups 14th anniversary. Smile South Jersey Renaissance was reconstituted as the New Jersey Support Group and held its first meeting at Washington Crossing on August 3, 1996.

The August meeting was also our annual election of New Jersey Support Group officers. The election results are as follows:

President: Leah Edwards
Vice President: Terry Morningstern
Secretary: Kara Mitchell
Treasurer: Ronnie Dougherty

As always, food and refreshments were served with a few additional treats provided by the members. An informal open forum discussion was held after the general meeting and announcements for interested members. The remaining members relaxed and socialized in the main conference room.

Our regular pre meeting social Party is scheduled at the Raven in New Hope, Pennsylvania on Saturday September 4. No reservations are required. Soda and drinks are available at the bar. You may arrive at any time, however 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM is ideal to get a parking place and enjoy a few hours before departing to the meeting about 20 minutes away. If you are planning to have lunch at the Raven, please arrive before 3:00 PM as the kitchen is now closed between lunch and dinner.

Our next meeting is scheduled for Saturday September 4, 2010. This meeting will be held at the Church in their upstairs facilities. Please enter at the main front door of the Church rather than the side door. An open forum discussion group will be held after the general meeting for members interested in a focused round table venue.
