I received this note from Jill Britton about this meeting which I think 
would be of interest to some of you. I expect there are even members of 
this group who expect to attend. If you are a member of a bulb related 
group that is having a meeting that you think others might be interested in 
knowing about, feel free to post the message about it to our group.
