    I;m looking forward to go to the Sept 14th LETS CHAT program at the library. Can anyone give me an idea of what I should expect ? Is it mostly for men or women ? I’m hoping to meet a woman that I can take out to lunch and possibly be my companion. Is this possible ? If you’ve attended one of these get togethers….what should I expect and how nany people generally show up ?
