  • 2003 Meeting Agenda

    To Everyone:

    This will be my first agenda that I will be attending. Should I bring my wife and two children (age 7 & 5) or should I come by myself. Please share your thoughts.

      Howie, Everyone does what works for them. If you can bring the family, I would. There will be supervised activities (fun stuff) for the little ones. The first year, my husband and sons came with me, but toured during the day. Now that the boys are older, my husband comes with me and has been glad that he did. It is very informal as far as moving in and out of the room, so you can go check on the kids, take a break, or whatever. I had never seen NJ except from the interstate, so it was quite a pleasant surprise to see this beautiful area. Not a whole lot different from western Maryland Lisa would have you believe they have more bears, but I haven't seen one yet. She, however, shares the hiking trail with them. I'm looking forward to meeting with everyone. Linda
