I’m a longtime AI member but a transplant to Portland. My husband and I would love to attend and meet you all. I can bring a vegan casserole and dessert.
Awesome Valerie! As a vegan, I volunteer to eat as much of your casserole as you like! I and the other members all look forward to meeting you as well!
I’ll bring Martinelli’s cider, bottle opener, and return address labels so I don’t have to spend time writing my return address on envelopes Looking forward to meeting you, Valerie!
Mary Jo and I plan to bring roasted vegetables and a grain, some cards and various supplies.
Thank you all for welcoming me to your group. Being in AI for 30 years has been one of the most rewarding parts of my life and I very much look forward to working with you. The letter writing was super-organized and let’s face it, the food was the best in AI ever!
I’m new to Portland and looking forward to meeting you all. I use public transport so I can’t bring too much but I’ll bring dessert, greeting cards, stamps, and envelopes.
Don’t worry, Nikola, the most important thing to bring is yourself! Look forward to meeting you tonight. Welcome to our group, and welcome to Portland!
Thank you Ronald
