Thanks again to all who joined us for our first IN PERSON Bark Hall! It was great to see some old faces and make new acquaintances. As promised, we're placing the notes from the meeting here and will keep you posted with updates as soon as we have them. Please do remember, however, that we are all volunteers so we dedicate our time as we are able.
