MIMIC THIS! When you get invited to events 3000 miles away (or 20 of them just across town), use COPY & PASTE with the really interesting events to seed your own community's plans for similar events. Why start from scratch.... Beg, borrow and mimic! More....
I see you've connected with Coco...she can help you get connected in Lyons and also provide referrals to other Colorado groups (depending on where you end up). I've actually moved to New Hampshire...sooooo, I'm sorry I won't get the chance to meet you. Good luck! Jennifer
