 MEALS

Friday lunch:  may be purchased on the concourse.

Saturday lunch:  is not available on the concourse.  We may order something delivered, like pizza.  Or you can bring your lunch.  We can eat in the librarian’s lounge.

ORIENTATION AND BUSINESS MEETINGS

Both the orientation and the business meeting will be scheduled dependent on the number attending and the time of the attendees’ arrival.  The president would like to schedule the business meeting either at lunch on Saturday or prior to dinner on Friday, late afternoon.

Please e-mail Sharon at fambuff7@gmail.com with the day and approximate time you expect to arrive and the number attending ASAP or before April 28th at the latest.  Both meetings will be scheduled dependent on the response from attendees and the schedule for both will be e-mailed, placed on our Facebook page and posted on our website.  Please check for those meeting times.

You may still attend the NYSCOGO meeting if you miss the deadline.  We just need to set a time and place to include as many as possible and still be helpful.
