Carol L reported that her church, Unitarian Universalist, will be discussing ethical eating this Sunday and all are welcome.

Treasurers’ Report: No changes were made this month.

Volunteer Hours: Carole gave a brief description on the method the Master Gardeners use to track their volunteer hours. Marolyn explained she needed to withdraw from the committee. Jacquie reported she would try to develop a format for us to use by early April. Evie suggested that we have Jill review the format before beginning to use it. Evie encouraged someone in our group to volunteer to become our “historian”, to collect and organize our clippings, photos, etc.

Spring into Action Event: Kathy and Linda McBee visited the Cornerstone venue. Kathy reported that the site is beautiful and the staff is welcoming. Our event, on March 24, will be held in their barn. It has ample room and they will provide tables and 40 chairs. Volunteers are asked to arrive around 8:30 AM to help with set up.

Napa High School Club: The group’s Faculty Advisor, Stephanie, reported on the club’s activities. They have held drumming circles and distributed information about Heifer. They are involving classes in making bracelets which they intend to sell to raise awareness and funds for Heifer. Perhaps there will be bracelets to sell at the March 24 event.

Barn Dance: Carol is collecting donations of cloth napkins and pie tins to use at the May 25 event at Greenstring Farm. Evie asked for a volunteer to be the Napa co-chair for the event with Linda McB. The task list was circulated for members to review and use to sign up for tasks to support the barn dance.

The second chapter of Hunger for Change was discussed. The discussion was led by Nancy.
