    Hi, all. Homecoming details were finalized at this meeting; please see the website for table working slots and volunteered contributions.
    Please remember to bring any baked good you volunteered to make.
    At this point everyone has picked up her copy of Water for Elephants and we decided our Book Discussion day will be Tuesday, November 16th.
    Because of the length of the book, we also decided to do some interim meeting days. These are optional for people who want to share their opinions/questions as they read.
    • Wednesday, Nov 3 – read through p. 104 (NOTE:  This is one-time change from Tuesday since you don't have school on Nov. 2 because of Election Day.)
    • Tuesday, Nov 9 – read through p. 220 (read through ch. 16)
    If you have read further, you’re still welcome to join, we’ll just ask that you not spoil any good stuff. Again, the final reading date is Nov. 16. We are excited to start our discussions!
