    More edits to the Agenda. Added charity work. If you have a favorite charity that you think we should volunteer for, bring the info with you to the August meeting. I know some people have already talked about doing a 'toys for tots' thing around Lifeday, but if you have other ideas, lets here them.

    Personally, I'd rather we go volunteer our time rather than due some sort of fundraiser. I hate fundraising. . . .

    Lifeday is a Wookie celebration that occurs in midwinter where time is spent with one's family, gifts are exchanged, and thanks are given for blessings of the past and coming year.

    Sometimes it is used as the Star Wars equivalent of Christmas (since not everyone in the universe, or even on these boards are Christians ;) )

    I would love to have a A). Halloween party, which im sure Jedi1966 and family would adore because it would be perfect for costumes and B). A christmas party would be alot of fun aswell! Maybe we could lable the Xmas party lifeday and give presents and have games and everything and I think a Star Wars Xmas tree would be very neat! Im all for stuff like the picnic, I had such a good time. :)

    Both a Halloween and a Christmas party would be great. We'd have to have Holiday special playing in the background at the XMas party.

    If you still want to add something to this months agenda try and have it suggested by the 20th. If you don't get it in by the 20th, you can just bring it up as new business at the end of the prepared agenda.

    A suggestion, if I could. If you plan on coming to the August meeting, it might be a good idea to bring along some paper and something to write with. That way, if you have something to bring up, or if an idea comes to you in the middle of something, you can write it down, and you won't forget it. That way, we don't have 80 people all trying to get their word in at the same time. That way, we might be able to stay on track and take care of business. At the very least, Greencat won't have to go into teacher mode all the time.

    Great idea. This month is going to be different. Here's how the meeting will be handled so it doesn't turn into madness again.

    I will address each part of the agenda one at a time. If you wish to talk on a subject you can do so after I make my opening comments on the subject. If you wish to be recognized just raise your hand. There will be no speaking out of turn, if you want to speak you have to wait your turn. After all points of the agenda are covered I will ask for any new business then adjourn the regular meeting and open discussion.

    Something else I think we should do is to call the Kings resturaunt, and let tehm know that we will have a large party of people coming in and the time. Just to kind of give them a heads up. I'm sure they'd appreciate it.

    Well, the table isn't quite that big. I might try to get there early in order to get the deal, eat, and make the meeting on time so if anyone wants to join me feel free.

    FunFest is like a bowling-arcade kinda place,it's in Harmarville too - jist down the road.

    How to git to King's you ask? Follow the following...

    from da burgh : take rte 28 North to exit 11. Coming off the exit you will come to a stop sign. Merge into traffic. There will be a Bob Evans on your right. Go through the first stop light. Follow this road to the stop light at the main intersection (Exxon will be on your right) Turn Left. This new road will have 4 lanes (2 going each way) Stay in the left lane. Mc D's is about 1/2 mile or so down this road on your left. You will go through several red lights before the intersection of Mc D's. Turn left at this intersection. When you turn there will be a car dealership on your left and a McD's on your right. You will see King's from there.

    From the "surrounding areas" Take the turnpike and take exit #5. As you come off the exit you will merge into traffic. Stay in the right lane. Mc D's is a couple hundred of feet up the road on the right. There is a stop light - turn right at Mc D's baddabing...King's is right behind Mc D's.

    If anyone got lost in my babble let me know and I will try to clarify




    Cool?
