As our Country is approaching the day of the next Presidential election our chapter is feverishly preparing for its next business meeting. Both events will take place on November 6. It is our civil duties to both vote and be active community members. So on that day please vote and also attend our next meeting at the Delancey Street Foundation. Our NCNMLG members’ expectations are heightened as this is a very special meeting because the guest of honor will be none other than Jane Blumenthal, 2012-2013 MLA President.
