Happy Halfoween!

Members earned access to the VIP area party for simply being in costume. That certainly goes

Congratulations on making it through. In the midst of all the activity, I hope that you were able to make an event or two with 10/31 Consortium.

It's been a great way to start my year as your president.   That being said, I'm truly thankful for the pause and peace offered to us through the Season of Lent. Lent is not only
