And in that respect, we couldn't have done a better job, I think of doing that. I think the, from a community perspective, having spoken to quite a few people who've been here today, and you know, they've been over, over 100 or so people throughout the day that have attended these four hours, they really like the opportunity of having a space to network in to see what's going on, to see other parts of the community that they normally might not engage with, until you have a whole community of eight.

Why these sorts of things are why what we do gives us that energy, we know that there's a there's a reason why we get together we know that it needs to continue. And it's just good to be able to touch base with those things. Even though that might not have been the original intention of the event. In fact, that's what happened. So I totally agree that you come away feeling a sense of not just community but a sense of of, and not just the sense of compassion window or anything like that, but a sense of purpose around why we do the things we do in our community and who we do.
