    Discussion re: alcoholic beverage service.

    The Co-chairs are Caroline Bonnet and Linda McBee. Committee members are Marolyn, Renee, Linda Lucas.
Members given handout about Brainstorming for events. • Question of having 1 major fund raiser and 1 major educational event was discussed. Decision was made to focus on the Sonoma Event until it is firmed up.
Little Rock AVC Conference
Caroline and Linda McBee went. Small gifts were passed out as we discussed Heifer’s Goals. Some items of interest are: more money is coming in to Heifer from individuals than congregations. All are asked to give monthly instead of one big donation annually. Linda reported that the facilities in Arkansas is amazing and so are the people.
Caroline read the story re: Matthew (a Heifer partner) and Heifer. 
* Something to consider: being for peace instead of against war.
Next Meeting: Jan. 8, 2011 in Sebastopol at the Methodist church
We will start the Voluntary simplicity study course from NWEI.

P.S. The next Napa Meeting will probably be at the Methodist Church
