Posted by Heifer Sonoma/Napa On Monday, April 30, 2012
Attendees:  Janeen, Emelia, Linda D.Y. Linda L., Carol L., Kathy M., Jacquie E.  Jessie N., Keni K. Carole K., Marlene Z.(acting chair)
Agenda: Check in, Barn Dance Sign Ups, Earth Day, Teacher Resource/Heifer kits, and a discussion of Chapter 3 in our book: Hungry 4 Change.
  • Barn Dance
    1. Barn dance flyer was sent to everyone in an e-mail.
    2. Mary Blom wants everyone to e-mail the names of all sponsors and donations to her at "EHFarms@aol.com"
    3. Marlene advised us all that Evie would like us to sign up for the number of postcards/invitations we each want to send.
    4. Marlene shared a memo showing the order of events at the dance and a map of the barn from Linda McBee showing how it is going to be set up, including a cleanup station for self cleaning of dishes
    5. A task signup sheet was passed around for people to sign up for what they will do.
    6. Linda DY raised questions about the promotion of the event.--Marlene referred to the postcards and flyers and work that Betty M. is doing to get publicity into papers and radio stations.
    7. Later in the meeting Carol L. brought up the fact that those who cleaned up at the end of last year's dance were exhausted by that time, having been on hand all day. It was recommended that perhaps Heifer-Sonoma could explore the recruiting of some young, strong volunteers to help with this job, perhaps in return for tickets to the dinner and dance they could even arrive later in the day to be fresh and ready.
  • Earth Day
    1. Coordinator Kathy M. reported that Heifer-Napa will have a table on Brown St., across from the court house, from ll:00 to 5:00.
    2. Kathy requested that we take note of the attractiveness of the materials and the possible use on the occasion of the barn dance.
    3. Several members shared how wonderful the experience was last year and we were all advised to be ready for any kind of weather from hot to cold this year.
  • Heifter kits for the Teacher Resource Center (TRC)
    1. Kits have been very successful at the Teacher Resource Center, but we have run out. Linda DY will look into ordering more. September is the month when the TRC would like to have the kits available for teachers. It would be a plus if we could have a presence when the teachers come to the center in late August.
  • Miscellaneous
    1. Carole K. shared information about the Vegetable Gardening series that the Master Gardeners are presenting from January to September this year. If you are interested, you can the office at 253-4221.
    2. Linda DY strongly recommended that each of us read the food section of the Sustainable Napa plan.
Respectfully submitted, Carole Kent R.R. (Reluctant Recorder)
