NEW INFORMATION: Because of the larger-than-expected turnout, our home will no longer suffice for the dessert and hot drinks after the drive. We are meeting at 6pm at Central Pizza, Farmington Avenue in Berlin, CT as an ending location after we complete this drive; where we can all chip in and enjoy pizza and drinks. You will not need to bring your desserts - just your appetite and your letterboxing gear!

Bring your own snack, sandwich etc. to hold you over during the day. Sue & I will bring some hot chocolate in thermoses for the day. Feel free to bring a snack or hot drink to share with the group.

Inclement Weather Policy: Chrissy will announce on the LbNE talk list, and we will post here, the decision to cancel this drive if there is bad weather.
