Present: Dotty Joos, Lynne March, Mary Blom
We hold in love our friends and fellow volunteers Carole and Keni Kent as they
grieve the loss of their daughter. A memorial service will be held at Wombats Farm
Unity Napa Valley continues to provide a steady flow of animals to Heifer projects.
So far they have purchased a flock of poultry, 2 gifts of bees, 2 goats, a water buffalo,
and are “working on” a llama.
Sebastopol United Methodist Church: We will do a presentation during the
sermon time on 6/29 and will also recognize the children of the church for
successfully filling a peace pipe with their offerings.
Heirloom Seed Festival 9/9, 9,10, 9/11: There is concern that we may not have
adequate staffing for 3 full days. The one alternative is to offer a children’s activity
for one day (school day). Evie has asked for activity ideas to submit to the Fair.
Various display and activity ideas were discussed. Mary will communicate them to
Evie. It was noted that we must remember to have a good supply of educator
website info, as well as stickers or hand stamps. Lynne reminded us that the prime
audience we had hoped to address at this venue was sustainable agriculture
activists from around the country who might not be aware of Heifer’s role. Will we
have interchanges of this kind at a children’s activity booth? She encouraged us to
further explore the acceptability and limits of leaving a table of information
materials unattended when we don’t have coverage. She also suggested that Jill
might consider presenting a workshop at the Festival.
Our July meeting will be 7/26, the 4th (instead of the 3rd) Saturday.
begin our “Hungry for Change” study at our August meeting. 8/16.
