Class Update 11/23

Happy Thanksgiving week! Last Sunday, we continued the Making Love Last a Lifetime series with a discussion about what women want men to know about women. We will be holding class this Sunday, and the discussion will be about what men want women to know about men, so be sure to be there if you are in town this weekend!

Mission Project:
The consensus from responses to last weeks email indicated that a Sunday would be better for our Welcome Home a Hero participation (our 4th Qtr mission project). We decided in class that Sunday December 20th would be the Sunday that we could have the most participation. Blaire has contacted the coordinator at Welcome Home a Hero, and she mentioned that most of the flights are coming in around 8 AM... I hope that this doesn't hinder our willingness, as a class, to participate. We can discuss further in class over the next couple of weeks.

December Social:
We also discussed in class that a Cowboys watching party may be our best bet for a December social. In looking at the Dec game schedule, it looks like our best bet would be the Dec 13 game against San Diego. Another option might be the Dec 19 (Saturday night) game against New Orleans. If you have a strong preference either way, please let me know. We will offer our house for the location.

Google Group:
We have shifted gears a little with our blog/email group effort. The blog site doesn't seem to want to cooperate with our yahoo group email address, so Blaire has set up a google group, so check your inbox for the invitation to the google group, and click the link in the email to accept the invitation, please. We will start to use this as our main distribution channel.

Joys and Concerns:
Michael H's grandmother in an assisted living place after a stroke. She is having some trouble adjusting to her new living arrangements after having lived in the same house for 90+ years.
Amanda F's grandfather has been placed on hospice care, having had congestive heart failure.

I hope everyone has safe travel if you are going places for Thanksgiving, and look forward to seeing all the rest of you in class on Sunday!
