Wombat Farm, Napa

Those present: Evie, Sandra, Carol, Linda, Meg, Keni, Caroline, Alexandria, Kathy, Jennifer, and Betty.

First we introduced ourselves. We had several new faces at the meeting. We were very excited to see people from the Napa area come to our meeting.
Old business:

* The dinner at Wombat Farm was a great success. The food was delicious, the friends very compatible, and they made $1,820.

Upcoming events:

* Napa J.C. has a big celebration approaching for Earth Day. It will be celebrated on April 25th, 10-2. Is it a good place for a Heifer Table?
* "12 Stones" is being shown at the Raven Theater in Healdsburg, 4:30-6:30 on May 10th which is Mother's Day.
* May 16th, Saturday, is a pot luck at the Presbyterian Church in Napa.
* At the Napa Farmers Market there is a Peace Table. Would Heifer be interested is sitting at the table sometimes over the summer months? The market is Tuesdays and Saturdays in the parking lot of the Wine Train. Alexandria was interested in working on that project.

Discussion:

* Evie will bring a "buying" book to the next meeting to show us where to shop.
* Everyone needs to make 3 dozen cookies for the movie event. We need more volunteer booklets. Caroline will order what we need.

"12 Stones"

* Mahendra will be speaking at the event, and at our next meeting. We were given poster and post cards for advertising. Tickets are for sale at Levins, One World, and Copperfields in Healdsburg. Tickets will also be sold at the door. We need to advertise and spread the word. The events success is up to us!
* There was great discussion about the press release for this event. Betty has media connections. Alexandria will help with advertising on some web sites that would be attractive to college students.
* A task list circulated around the room. People were encouraged to sign up. Caroline will send a copy to everyone. Please remember what your job is.

Caroline read a letter written by a young woman from Nepal who had stayed with her years ago. She was thanking the many people who had helped her in her new life in America. Another example of "passing on a gift".

Evie had a draft of an event planning sheet to help with setting up events in the future. She had some great ideas.

Our next meeting will be on May 9th. No location was decided on as yet. This will be a special meeting with Mahendra, hopefully to be held in Healdsburg Please make every effort to be there. We'll make final plans for the event the next day.
