Our 1st “CASUAL 3rd Wednesday @ Denny’s”
Sharon Darrow, NCPA President:
Wednesday 18 May was our first NCPA monthly noon meeting, and the five of us who attended agreed that it was the best meeting ever. Why, especially since there were only five of us? Because we were able to get to know one another on a much deeper level, we shared information and ideas in a very intimate, friendly setting, and we had a free-wheeling discussion on writing that taught all of us something new and special. The private room at Denny’s on Auburn at Watt Ave was large and quiet, Denny’s is easy to find, and the staff took great care of us. (Editor’s note: With plenty of free parking.) The five pioneers today were June Azevedo, Sharon Darrow, Frances Kakugawa, Norma Jean Thornton and Katie Yaranon. We are all very different people with varied skills and experiences, but this meeting helped us feel closer, more supportive of one another and energized to be better at what we do. The next noon meeting will be on June 15th, so treat yourself by marking your calendar now!
