We did not manage to hold a Membership and Board Meeting in the first few months of 2014 (with purpose to see if RMCFA can be revitalized by the volunteer help of more people). We still hope to hold a meeting of some sort, now looking to June, July, or August.
REMEMBER: Perfumes, Colognes, Scented Products, etc. are NOT allowed. Such products cause many problems for people with ME/CFS and/or FM!

2013 Discussion/Support Group Meeting Series
■not scheduled at this time
2012 Notes: No volunteer Meeting Coordinator has emerged to help RMCFA with plan and hold meetings. Our attempt to shift the location of discussion meetings around to various parts of the greater Denver metro area was only minimally successful, yeilding meetings at Arvada Library and Eloise May (ease Denver) Library in addition to SouthGlenn (Centennial) library mostly used in 2011.
Discussion Series: RMCFA's Discussion/Support Group Meeting series, started in March 2011, had been going rather well. Please feel free to join us, whenever and wherever meetings are held. See RMCFA's Discusssion Group Guidelines.
Sharable Contact Data
Many have granted permission for RMCFA to share their contact data with others who also share their contact data. This helps build a larger community of RMCFA members who are able to contact each other. Also, this helps "decentralize." RMCFA "central" leaders don't have answers for everyone's questions. This list provides access to others who might be able to answer questions you have. See this data form to sign up (which shows you the kind of data the list contains).You may mail the form as indicated, or you may email the information requested on that data form (without the form or "signature") to Tim Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org. (If emailed, for security I'll email it back to you for confirmation you control the email address provided.) "Rules" governing the use of the Sharable Contact Data list are as follows:
This list is for personal use only for purposes derived out of RMCFA related interaction.
Commercial use is prohibited.
Endorsing any product or service is unwise and is prohibited.
Medical Advice is not to be offered or considered received.
Contact data which RMCFA has permission to share will be accumulated and distributed to all on the list.

Visitors are always welcome. Reservations are not needed.
Events are always free to attend.
We operate as a charity -- donations are welcome; no dues are required.

SouthGlenn Library (SGL) events are typically discussion/support group meetings, (but occasionally an education meeting) held at varying times in varying rooms, located in the recently renovated The Streets at SouthGlenn shopping area on the southwest corner of Arapahoe Road and University Blvd in Centennial. Internet mapping systems don't pinpoint SGL very well by its street address. Instead this google map shows various locations at and near the library.
Parking is available in a five-story parking structure on the southwest corner of the shopping area.
For personalized directions to the south parking garage entrance, use this google map, enter your address in "A", and click "Get Directions"
More general, this google map link shows various approaches to the south entrance (at marker "H") of the parking garage.
A nice "concierge lobby," a great place to gather/chat before or after the meeting, is on the first floor next to the garage elevator
The Library is across the street from the east entrance to the parking garage (i.e., across the street and just a little south/right of the Concierge Lobby).
Enter on the first floor, and take the stairs or elevator to the second floor library. The meeting rooms are then at the other end (east end) of the library.
You may bring covered snacks/beverages through the library, and open/consume them in the meeting room.
