Dear RMCFA friends,

In case of any doubt given recent snow and cold, I write to confirm our event with Dr. Vernon is still happening tomorrow .  I also write with more specific details about the overall event time line.  First, the basics:

ME/CFS Research1ST Update with Suzanne Vernon, PhD
Scientific Director  of The CFIDS Association of America (CAA)
December 6, 2011  |  Koelbel Library  |  3:45 - 6:00+ PM  |  Room B
See details, including driving/parking directions, on RMCFA's Event page.

The CAA continues to steer a steady course in turbulent times for ME/CFS research.
Come hear a leading expert in the field bring us up to date on recent events
related to such research, including CAA's Research1st project.

RMCFA appreciates the use of Koelbel Library facilities for this event (map).
Granting of permission by the Arapahoe Library District to use library facilities
does not constitute endorsement by the Library District Staff or Board of Trustees.

Thanks to a handful of helpful volunteers, we have also planned a nice after-presentation informal holiday gathering.  We will have lots of chairs in small groupings, refreshments, hot apple cider, hot coffee, perhaps hot tea, and bottled water.

  • As always, reservations are not needed, and the event is free to attend.  Come join us!
    • Of course, donations are always needed and welcome.  RMCFA is a 501(c)(3) charity.
  • Cannot be "on time"?  You are welcome to join us as you are able.
  • Need to leave "early"?  No problem -- leave whenever you need to.

A little "wrinkle" in the plan involves

  • having both sides of a large room ("capacity 108+70") only from 3:30 to 6:00 PM,
    • the "108" side will be set up for the presentation
  • having only the "small" side ("capacity 70") after 6:00 PM.
    • the "70" side will be set up for the after-presentation gathering/party.

Here's a more complete schedule:

2:30 pm -- a few volunteers set up the after-presentation room for a holiday gathering
3:30 pm -- any able/willing to help set up the presentation room chairs, please join us.
3:45 pm -- "Doors Open" for attendees
4:00 pm -- Dr. Vernon's Presentation, with Questions and Answers
5:40 pm -- break is required (to put away chairs and clear out of the presentation room)
6:00 pm:

  • might or might not continue a bit with Q & A as a group; finish up "group" meeting
  • transition to after-presentation gathering/party
  • Dr. Vernon will stay and chat with individuals or small groups
9:00 pm -- room must be cleaned up, cleared out, "party's over"

Happy Holidays to all!
