Re: Mythopoeic Discussion Group now May 14th, 2007
- Greetings friends,
We apologize for this late note on the Mythopoeic Discussion Group to
take place at St. Paul's Church in Brooklyn, NY. It was originally
slated for this Friday May 11th, 2007, but has been postponed till
Monday May 14th, 2007 5p-9pm. This is unfortunately due to some
personal items arising for Anthony and Jessica of the Northeast
Tolkien Society, most importantly last minute job schedule changes.
If you plan on attending please see http://www.herenistarion.org for
travel info and moot itinerary for this month's meeting.
We hope to see you all there, and our apologies for any inconveniences
to your own plans.
Anthony S Burdge
Chair Northeast Tolkien Society
