LPM: future meetings

We can always reserve the conference room at the Chamber of Commerce. I
would think that at least one person here has a company that is a member.
Any member can reserve it. It includes internet connectivity, chairs,
tables, a little closet with a sink and place to put drinks and stuff. It
is only available during business hours - so a lunch time would be great.
