Hi folks,

The first Wikimedia Café  meetup  was surprisingly well attended with four
people. Also, a few people contacted me off list to express interest. So, I
will host another Café meetup next month, again one hour before the
WMF-hosted Wikimedia Activities Meeting. If you're interested in the Café
then please mark your calendars now, because I will send at most one more
reminder before the September meetup.

*Au revoir* <https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/au_revoir>,
