Our Big News:
The December meeting will be our last at Planet Earth Rising.
As you might imagine, this was a difficult decision for the LT, given the beautiful and welcoming ambiance of PER. However, if you were at the September or October meetings, the need is obvious. We’re bursting at the seams. To keep our organization vital, it needs to have room to grow. A secondary reason was our need to change to the 4th Sunday,
when PER is not available in the time slot we need. The switch to the 4th Sunday allows us to take advantage of tandem speaker opportunities with San Francisco Astrology Society (SFAS), which meets on the 4th Thursday.
We’ll have many more details for you in this month’s e-mails and at the meeting, but here’s the rub. Co-Treasurer Betty O’Hara was able to arrange for us to meet in her condo clubhouse, located in Roseville, just behind the Galleria Mall. Address, maps and condo gate access code will be available to you, including a handy biz-sized card for your wallet to remind you which numbers to punch to get into the gate. The space is light, roomy, there’s ample parking, and it has both a kitchen and onsite storage. This will enable us to leave our equipment and save the LT the burden of transporting it to every meeting, which risks damage to our backs and our techno-tools. Not only that, there’s a dramatic overall cost savings in rental fees. Here are some preview pictures.
New Meeting Location as of January 22, 2012

Change is difficult for all of us, and I know that for some of you, the Galleria area location will actually seem farther–and for a few of you, it might actually be a bit of a longer drive. It’s two miles closer than Planet Earth Rising, measuring from the a midpoint in downtown Sacramento.(I chose 15th & K). It’s simply off the I-80 rather than I-50 corridor.
We really need your support to keep an open mind and willingness to learn a slightly new routine and location. We’re not sure the condo clubhouse is the solution for the long-term, but for the short-term, it has so many perks; we felt it was essential to try it for 2012 to see if it meets our needs for this stage of our development. If not, we’ll continue to look for our more permanent home.
We are so grateful to Planet Earth Rising for its support in our first year-plus, we are honoring Paula, Darrell and Staff with a small gift from our group at approximately 1:30 pm, during the meeting and potluck. They have been completely understanding about our growth needs, and we hope to partner with them, again, in the future for events when a smaller venue works for us.
Grateful for our past and excited about our future,
