Joining our Facebook Group — Created to allow members more interaction, an ability to join the conversation about what happened at the last meeting, what’s coming up at the next meeting, how to figure something out, or to get ideas on how to break down a brick wall.

By default, anyone who wants to join our Facebook group must have a Facebook account. While we do not promote registering to social networking groups, since Facebook is free, easy to manage, and quite fun to maintain, we encourage all members to join us and help us create a more interactive and socially engaging JGSLI.

If you need help signing up, someone will be at the monthly meetings to help you.  Once you have signed up, type in “JGSLI” in the search engine and you will see our group. Click on to our group and then you’ll see an option to join.
