Minutes - Sebastopol - June 16th

Posted by Heifer Sonoma/Napa On Tuesday, June 19, 2012
Present were: Linda McBee, Caroline Bonnet, Mary Blom and two "new-old" volunteers Margarite Treat and Dotty Joos - Welcome! We are thrilled to have you join us.
  • We first introduced ourselves and told a bit about our work with Heifer. 
  • Linda gave a financial report on the Barn Dance of May 25th. 
  • We went thru the Napa meeting minutes' critique of the barn dance & talked about our take on it.
    • We agreed we need to book early out and be more selective in order to get the dates we would prefer. Our chosen date was problematic due to graduation and Memorial Day weekend which resulted in a poor turn out. We were working with various people's schedules including Green String Farms' availability. 
    • We discussed the possibility of buying a projector as the cost of shipping it from Hidden Villa is prohibitive. It was agreed we would check prices and report back on the results.
  • Linda told of two up and coming presentations available for us to have a table.
    • The AKA Sorority national gathering (or Boule) in San Francisco July 23 - 26. Beatrice Biira will be presenting. Check out their website to learn more about the organization and event details. Caroline, Linda, Dotty are interested in attending.
    • An event at Laguna Seca Raceway. They are Heifer supporters and are having a special wine and cheese event and invited us to have a table. We need to learn more about the event. It is near Monterey. Linda said she could go.
  • We will make or buy a blank calendar to mark out our events and possible conflicting events for the next year to facilitate our planning and events we can "coat tail" on. We can each print out our own, and Linda will post a blank calendar on Google docs that we can all access to add events. We can all use the same master calendar that is on Google.
  • We told Dotty and Margarite about our study of the North West Earth Institute course our group did a couple years ago and our follow up "10 mile meal". We are studying the Corner stones following the example in each issue of the World Ark. Each meeting we'll talk about a Cornerstone, how they work in the field and how we can use them in our work. We also talked about following the Heifer model in planning our events: Define, what do we want to do? Envision what we want to achieve, Implement how to get there? and Review, how did we do?
