Hello All.

Last December, an MATC instructor, and good
friend of mine, asked if I would help get the
word out to show support for the computer science
classes they offer there - some of which were being
considered for cuts of somekind.

I sent a link to the LUG that went to a website
with a petition and invited anyone to read it/
sign it/pass it along, which many of you did.
They ended up with 600+ sigs after all was said
and done!! More than enough to keep things rolling.

Over the weekend, I got an email from Mike inviting
everyone to a party on 5/14 which I told him I
would again forward to anyone interested =)

(details below)

On Mikes behalf, thanks again everyone.
