I live in Stowe, Vermont and I know Lew lives in Burlington. I think we have several people from NH and somebody from Maine. Maybe we can try to have a gathering sometime before Oct 2013.

I don't live in New England, but will be going there on a cruise this Oct 26th on the Emerald. But Carolyn, I wanted to ask you, when did you live in San Rafael, or in Marin? I was born and raised there. I lived there until 1972 or so.

Yes, you are certainly welcome! Maybe we should say Northeast North American meet and greet. I live in Stowe in Vermont. Where do you visit in New England?

we mostly go to Burlington for weekend getaways,

I spent every summer in Vermont until I was about 18 so I feel like a honorary Vermonter!

Hello!

we are Joe and Claire from Massachusetts and just booked today.

Actually we are snowbirds we spend 6 months in Mass/NH area and 6 months in SE Fla.

So if there are any get togethers this summer or next while we are in that area we would be glad to meet ya'll.

Carolyn-Joe and I were on the Ruby Flames cruise I may be wrong but I think you were also. I know I did meet Ann,Lynda and a few other ladies.

Anyway,just wanted to stop by and say "Hello" and hope we get a chance to meet at some point.

We have so many great summer events here in Vermont, both Stowe and Burlington. Maybe we could plan a weekend here in Vermont this summer or fall based on a special event like the Jazz festival, Oktoberfest, or one of the culinary or street fair events. I get many emails with Groupon, Jumponit, etc. that are always offering 50% off on accommodations, meals, etc. I will let everyone know if I see something good.

Dave (Carib) said that he and his wife Leni will be flying into Vermont in August before touring in Canada. I think that would be a good time to have a get together of New Englanders (everyone else welcome too). Who wants to join us?

Carolyn, we are flying in August 25 and flying out from Burlington September 8. Either of those times will work for me.

Dave and Leni (caribe) will be in Burlington, Vermont the afternoon and night of August 25 on their way to a car trip through eastern Canada. I will be meeting them for dinner that evening and want to invite any New Englanders who can make it. Any other non NEers who want to visit our beautiful state are welcome too.

I hope some New England folks can join us in August. I have seen Tide Water, Florida, Ontario people get together but I don't think I have seen any New England.

It looks like our little group is coming together. Gloria and Lew can make it on Saturday August 25th. Now we need to make a plan, where to meet, what to do, where to eat. Is that going to work for you Jo?

Carolyn I was reading about Church Street Market. Looks like plenty of good places to eat there.
