Hey Joseph,

I'll be there. It is a little outside my comfort zone, which says "reporters should not be directly involved but merely observe." But I figure I can show up and see how it goes. At worst I can help get out any resulting messages through Patch.

Sounds good Chris. This is a community effort, you're a member of the community! If it makes you feel better, bring snacks to share. Might take the edge off...just sayin....
10-4. Lemme know off the thread where you live.
Hi, I'm coming on thursday.

Awesome. Thanks Anna!
I will try to make it. I work later on Thursday nights.
We will now be meeting in The Milly Way (287 Amory Street, in the Brewery) in the Back Room, this Thursday, November 11, at 7 pm. This way we will have plenty of space, and you can order dinner if you are hungry!
I am not sure that I will be able to attend - this is a holiday/day off for me so I will try to take advantage of the opportunity. I would like to be kept informed though. Based on my current role, hopefully I will be able to make some positive contributions. Thanks.

Hi Joe,

Count me in and let me know if there is anything I can bring.

Awesome, thanks for coming. If you can bring year to date stats for part 1 crime compared to last year that would be super helpful!

Thank you!
Hi everyone, I've made an event to promote our gathering tomorrow. It would be really helpful if you can show your support by RSVPing here.
