Per Vickie:

“As for times…Sometimes we are limited to when the speaker can do this. We have chosen 2 different days of the week, with one at noon and the other at 4. Noon has always had better attendance (maybe it’s the lunch)!! So now we are trying same day with regularity (4th Thursday of the month). However, I suspect that we will run into speaker unavailability at some point.”
