Our Heifer volunteer meeting was held at Kathy Mawer's home in Napa. Present were; Evie Trevethan, Caroline Bonnet, Carole and Keni Kent, Kathy Mawer, Mary Blom, Nancy Evans, Ann Schwartz, Carol Lilliberg, Betty Malmgren and a warm welcome to our new volunteers, Karoline Hall and Marlene Zimmerman!!

Nancy recorded the minutes on her laptop, where I think they are now traveling with her in China. So I'm going to try and remember some of the meeting to pass on to you. Consider these "interim minutes" , until we receive the official version from Nancy.

We introduced ourselves and told what had attracted us to Heifer. We're currently working on a list of the skills each of us bring to the group.Kathy charted Who/What/ByWhen.

Mary Blom said we could use her church hall for our meetings in Sonoma county every other month, alternating with meeting in Napa at the Whole Foods meeting room which Evie has arranged. It was previously decided that we need a regular meeting place in both counties, and that we will meet in alternate counties each month.

It was decided to wait until next month's meeting to give our report on the Heifer 201 weekend at Hidden Villa. Evie, Nancy and Caroline attended and look forward to sharing with the group.
