The Bakersfield Chapter met Saturday, Sept 26 in the Starbucks coffee shop at the local Barnes and Noble.  As Mg N. – reading-voraciously reported:  “We chatted and learned.  Desiree K. coached Caralynn R. in using the website.  Carol W. explained why she lives where she does in retirement.  I checked out our compatibility in our books ~ not one member has been higher than about 34% before I checked out my local new best friends.  Every one of them is 41% or higher.  (And they are so very nice ~ thank you, PBS!) We will be meeting again in November before the hectic holidays.”

New Local Chapter Leaders:

  • Cathy N. – morpha – SW WA/Coastal NW Oregon
  • Kim S. – kscha2017 – Eastern WI
  • Misty M. – mistyake – Kansas City, MO

If you want to be a Local Chapter Leader for PBS, you just need to have a PBS NIckname, a viewable public profile, and some organizational skills…check the Local Chapter Leaders Forum List of Official Chapters to see if your area already has a local Chapter. If not, and you want to do this, just contact us. There are no formal guidelines for being a Chapter Leader.  All of the information is in the Local Chapter Leader Discussion Forum topic. If you are an official Chapter Leader and want us to include your upcoming meetup in the Newsletter, send in a message to us with the date, at least a week before the end of the preceding month.
