Hi Brian,

How wonderful that all of these people have such an event to attend where there are no pretences and they can each be themselves, and they make new friends, and sometimes, meet a new partner to share their life with.  I'm very happy that there are organizations such as this and I admire greatly that you are contributing so much of yourself to this. It's a very good thing that you're doing....

Brian - Looks like it was well attended,;25 years is a long time to have such a group going and is an indication that it is cherished by the members.

Jo, the unique thing about Caring Singles is that it's a support group, not a dating venue.  It's a non-threatening environment. 

The irony is that many of our members have found partners through it.  We have nine or ten married couples who originally found each other through Caring Singles.

Jennifer, you're right.  Any organization that can last twenty five years must be meeting a legitimate need in a constructive way.  And Caring Singles certainly is doing so.

Konnie, the cake was made by the kids in the local Mount Joy Votech. They really did do a beautiful job on it.  The article on the event has just come out in the local Sunday paper, and we're now getting lots of callsfor more information!
