This is a reminder that the Ragans are hosting an APS social at their house on Saturday Oct 3 at 7 PM. We often get so busy at the APS meetings that we do not have time to meet and talk with other APS members. This very casual social evening is to remedy that. We hope that all can make this event as we did this a couple of years ago. All that we ask is that you bring a snack/dessert to share. We will provide ice/iced tea/soft drinks; if you want beer/wine, feel free to bring it.
