We are doing two days, not to make you go out on two days, but to make it easier for those that find one of the days a bad day. Dine-in or takeout lunch or dinner. Thanks to everyone that has participated in the past for their support of this program. Many of you may not really understand how much you are helping. Please be assured that you are and please keep asking friends and family to join you. We will publish locations as they are determined.

Gallagher presents them in an accessible manner, with an abundance of practical examples and concrete applications to our daily life.
