  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.

    • 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!

  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!

    • 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!

  3. 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.
