    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!

    Kami, can u contact me about when your face to face next support group WG meeting will be held? I live on Mille Lacs Lake by Malmo, MN. So Pine City would be in close proximity for me. My email address is: [email protected]. Thx Kami, Kathy

    Hey this sounds like fun getting together with others who can relate to all the WG issues and yet be able to forget about them for an evening or day of fun! I live on Mille Lacs Lake in the NE corner of the lake by Malmo, MN. I'm here 6 months till the end of Oct. then I go south for the winter time. But I would be glad to hold a get together at my lake place. We live in a resort so our home is a Mobil home but there's room to set up tents and tables behind our place for a big back yard picnic! We have a pontoon for giving boat rides, yard games, etc. Anyway, I never was able to find the time to get involved in support groups before while I was working but now that I'm retired it would be great to connect with others who face some of the same dilemma's that I do! Traveling around the state of MN to various WG gatherings would be very rewarding! I can be reached at my email address or on Facebook @ [email protected]. I look forward to hearing from other fellow WG patients. Kathy
