Greetings everyone! Long time no see, for many of you. (For our new members: a great big welcome!) This is Vanessa at your service once again. I have recently returned to Yellow Springs and the Emporium/Underdog Cafe to help run events and pick up the web site again and all that good stuff.

Yes, that means the calendar of events will be updated and sent out to this mailing list regularly again. Yay!

So. The web site is back and newly updated! Check out our new design:
Tell us what you think, send along any additions you’ve got, and let us know what you’d like to see on the web site in the future. Feel free to email me here or stop by the shop. If you see a bespectacled redhead either at the counter or with her head buried in a Macbook, you can be sure that’s me.

And here’s our events calendar for the rest of September and October. Check out the latest at
