After the regular meeting: 
One of our group members has been working on a website to provide an additional level of support to people with a wide variety of conditions/diseases/disabilities (like narcolepsy) that will help them connect for support in a different way.  It is still in development but we will be given a “sneak peek” after our regular meeting on Saturday if anyone would like to stay and see the demonstration.

PS: Just a note to "toot our own horn" so to speak. March 2014 will be the 5 year anniversary of the debut of our Midwest Narcolepsy Support Group website. In that time, the website has been viewed close to 25,000 times which may not seem like a lot in the grand scheme of things, but it is far beyond anything we expected. We have gone from being satisfied when there were 50 views each month to being nonchalant about 50 views a day. We thank each of you for your ongoing support and encourage you to provide your input on anything you think we can do to improve the website.
