    I want to start one in Central Minnesota. This is my goal once my daughter leaves for college in September. I have to have something to work on when she leaves and I think this will be a great thing for me to take on! I think there is a great need for it!!!

    The geographical center of Minnesota is Brainerd area but don't know if we have any members in that area. The population center of Minnesota is downtown St. Paul or Minneapolis and we had members from the that metro area and it seems strange that no Chapter currently exists there.

    I have some wonderful news to share!! My daughter and I are starting a new chapter of the Vasculitis Foundation!
    It's not offical until January of 2012 as they don't start any new chapters in November or December because of the holidays but I couldn't wait to share the news!! So far I think the name will be EAST CENTRAL MINNESOTA Chapter. I am very excited to get started and I have lots of ideas for our chapter. We will be located in Pine City and hopefully will draw from every direction around us. I believe that the other "active" chapters are from 2 to 2-1/2 hours from us. I am so excited but I hope I haven't bitten off too much!

    Yeah I want it to be causal and comfortable. I want to have guest speakers to talk on different subjects, maybe disect a different disease each meeting as Vasculitis covers 15 diseases and then of course personal sharing and treats as well! I want to have a picnic or bbq in the summer, I am thinking January we could have an "after the holidays" party and everyone could bring a white elephant gift of something that they received at Christmas that is not what they wanted and we could have a little funny gift exchange. We're just getting started but I want it to be fun. WG is not fun and everyone needs a little fun once in awhile and hopefully it will be easy for people to enjoy life a litle with other people that can relate to their situation. I have always said "Be safe, Be Silly!" Hee hee!
