July 2008 Area User Group Meetings

Summer has finally kicked into high gear!  The long Independence Day weekend is here!  I love the 4th of July.  It’s the best holiday of the year in my opinion.  Warm weather, BBQs, beach, pool, family, friends, endless nights.  It just doesn’t get any better than that.  It can’t shake a stick at Thanksgiving where it’s cold and everyone is crowded around a dinner table for a few hours before they all go home.

With summer underway, some user groups in our area may be taking temporary breaks.  However, there’s still plenty of meetings scheduled for this month.  Here’s the lineup for July:
