Meet ups

I will be organizing regional meet ups throughout the summer.
Some of the locations I am looking at are:
*Ann Arbor
*Battle Creek/ Kalamazoo
*Tri county area- Wayne, Oakland, Macomb county area (Barb did a great job with this area, if you want Barb, you can organize this one!)**possibly Flint
**possibly Grand Rapids

Possible dates:
*Lansing- June 5th/6th
*Ann Arbor- June 19/20th
*Battle Creek/ Kalamazoo- July 9th/10th
*Tri county area- Wayne, Oakland, Macomb county area- June 19th/20th (opposite day of Ann Arbor) or sometime late July or August
**possibly Flint
**possibly Grand Rapids
If you are interested in any of those locations, please send me a message stating what meet up. If these dates don't work, I'm open to suggestions

Also, if you are not near these areas and would still like to be included, feel free to organize your own meet up and post it in this group or let me know when it is and I'll include it in this area.
if you are not near these areas and no one else lives near you, we can include you in these groups as well...I do have a webcam and we can always connect via skype or yahoo or msn messenger too

Hi Guys. I just joined this community and love it already. I am currently living in Wixom, which is close to Novi. I saw that there have been some support groups set up, but was wondering if we were still doing them? Or if people would be interested in getting one started? If so, let me know! :o) Hope everyone is having a Happy Holiday season!

Hey Anna, I'm in Lansing, age 24. :-) Not quite, but close!

Is there anyone around the Grand Rapids area on here! Maybe even close to 20 years old.

This may be an off-the-wall topic for this group, but my wife and I are looking at getting back to the Detroit area where we're from. I am exploring whether there might be any diabetes-focused opportunities up there (writing, communications, PR, etc) that might fit for someone with a decade of journalism and a handful of years diabetes-blogging and advocating with social media. Let me know if anything comes to mind... thanks!

So... does anyone know of any fundraisers or big events that are anywhere in MI? I live in Canton so the metro detroit area would be best... I am trying to find something but I am getting frustrated with the ADA and JDRF websites because I can't find anything.... please let me know!
