TREE STUMPS! The following questions are "stumps" that other group members are having. We will be putting our minds together to root the problem out! We look forward to seeing you there. If you have any resources that would be helpful to the stumped, please bring them to the next meeting.
Please print out these questions at home.
Leave yourself room between the questions for your thoughts and Nov. 7 meeting notes.
