I hope this finds all of our ICSers safe and sound. While the storm did not turn out to be quite as bad as expected, it did cause a lot of damage in specific pockets of the Baltimore Metro Area. We still have power here in Perry Hall, but there are a lot of trees down and debris in the roadways. All in a all, I think canceling the meeting was a good call. We did not want to risk any members trying to make it to a meeting.
This is the first time we've been called for a hurricane. I always look forward to our monthly meeting. I don't know about everyone else, but after a month of working where our budget is cut, where micro-management seems to be the new ideal, and where managers don't know how to lead, I enjoy our monthly times together.
What we will be doing is moving Courtney's presentation on "MacBeth" to September (if Courtney can make it) and Dave Willard will fill in for Greg Mank with his presentation on the Peter Lorre film "M". We have some gaps open in our months ahead- if you'd like to sponsor a night, let Charlie Wittig know.
We will try to re-schedule Greg Mank for some time in the future. The Board will go over the upcoming months to see what we can do as far as scheduling. We will definitely try to get him for next October, if nothing else.
Now how come Summer goes so fast, but Winter drags??
