  1. 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.

  2. 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!
