Keeping Us on the Same Page Important Dates on the Comet Express-Sometimes it is necessary to make changes in vertical meeting dates as well as other meetings. Sometimes I simply make typos! Please help me keep updated on changes in meeting dates and feel free to wear an editor’s cap when reading the Comet Express. I need your help!
