This morning, we hit our RSVP cap of 35 participants! I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the enthusiastic response this event has generated. I should note again that our event would not be possible if it were not for the generous hospitality of Jesse Lebovics and the Independence Seaport Museum. I also want to thank my co-sponsors for this event, Joyce Homan and Valerie-Ann Lutz, who have played a vital part in planning and promoting this event.

Please read on for some important housekeeping:

First, if you successfully responded to the Doodle poll, you have a spot reserved. If anything changes and you can no longer attend, please notify me ASAP.

Second, due to the popularity of this event, a standby list will be created for anyone who would still like to attend. A link to a survey monkey will be sent out tomorrow, May 7, at 12 noon to sign up for the standby list. If a spot opens up, it will be offered to the first person on the list and each person thereafter if more spots become available.
