The group is open to anyone to drop in each week; no long-term commitment is required to join. Attendance varies from 10 to 25. Most attendees are between 30 and 55. Dress is casual. There is no charge for the group, but giving $1 per person for room use if you can is appreciated. The only Mondays we don't hold meetings are on holidays and the Monday after Christmas.
