Hope everyone has recovered (at least somewhat) from all the work (and the fun) of the Fall Festival.   I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for everything you did to make this happen.  I have heard lots of positive feedback about the event and I'm sure you have as well.  I really think we have started something that will be able to continue in future years.    To that end we will be getting together soon to have a post event discussion.  I will let everyone know as soon as we can schedule something.   In the meantime, here is a short story on the festival from The News that came out Wednesday (we're on Page 8):http://gcanews.com/newsOct25_18.pdf Stephen Aleman, Chairman
