On Sunday, we had another fantastic swap this time at my favorite place to get coffee - R&R Coffee Café! Thanks so much to Ryan, not only for hosting and opening on a Sunday, but for manning the coffee and drink bar so that everyone could sample delicious thirst quenchers. 

As usual, the variety of items that people brought was mind boggling.  It always seems like I never bring enough to swap because I wanted just about everything! Also, not only did a lot of regulars show up but there were a lot of new people.  It's always nice to put a name to a face, especially when you've chatted either via email, Facebook or Twitter.

Preparations for the Community Dinner are going well, but soon we'll have to start placing orders for things like tableware, beverages, a surprise gift for donors, etc.  If you haven't done so already, please RSVP as soon as you can here! We are still accepting donations as well, so if you can give please click here.  Wendy and I are so grateful for the enthusiasm and support from everyone so far.  There is also a Community Forum on the Colorado Springs Community Alliance website so that people can start sharing their ideas and what they are thinking of bringing to the dinner.  Please be sure to check that out as well! This is your dinner, and it's up to all of us to make it fun!

Wendy and I always have a great time at the swaps and we always hope that everyone else does as well! We're shooting for Sunday August 28th, 2-4pm to be the date of the next meet, but we'll of course let you know when we have solid information on date and location.

Below are some photographs that I took.  See you at the next swap!
