Creative-SS Lunch Bunch

Here is the online link to this week's The List: Top Home & Garden Events on page 22 of today's print edition in the Washington Examiner. Since some folks say they have trouble with the Examiner's PDF viewer and others can't find a copy in the many red streetboxes around town, I tried something different this time and saved a screen capture of the listing as a JPG and posted it here -- which you can now click on to read at 100%.

NOT on this list is a local networking luncheon I've started. For the past year or so I've been watching DCWebWomen gather in NoVa and Bethesda/Rockville area and thought we need a regular event like that here in Silver Spring too. So I finally dove in and sent out the invites to various creative and neighborhood list servs. From the reaction they are getting, I think the turnout is going to be big. I've called Panera to warn them. :-)

Here are the lunch details:

FIRST EVER - Creative-SS Lunch Brunch on 1/18

I'll have "Creative-SS" signs up around our table so we can all recognize each other and sit together.

If this is first one is well-attended, we will set future dates, trade emails, and hope to make this a monthly thing.
