We have only two folks RSVP'd to come tonight. I hope that others will join us. My husband comes home early so that I can attend. But, if we are going to have limited participation, I'd rather cancel the gathering in advance.What are your thoughts? Are the days, times, frequencies an issue? Same with the MNO?Thanks, PatSee More
