I know it's last minute, but wanted to pass this along in case you can
join the trip! So far I'm the only one from Vermont attending, and
I'd love to have company on board. Unfortunately, I'll already be in
Conn., so car-pooling wouldn't be an option with me.
Hope to see you there!
Kaye from Hinesburg
