Posted by Heifer Sonoma/Napa On Saturday, July 27, 2013


  • Check In
    present Dotty Joos, Linda McBee, Caroline Bonnet, Mary Blom
  • Gravenstien Apple Fair
    We discussed details, proposals and suggestions for the Fair. Decided to have cash on hand to reimburse volunteers for their entrance fee is they wanted. Parking permit and parking areas discussed. Mary brought print outs of the volunteer tabling schedule along with directions to and parking details for the Fair. Mary and Garret will set up Friday evening, canopy, 2 tables and 4 chairs. Linda and Ben will take down Sunday evening. We’ll have a container for possible donations and Heifer envelopes for receipts. There will be no selling or exchange of money, tho we can take donations. Friday Mary will get another packet with booth location and safety rules. Bring weights to hold down papers and a tarp to cover the tables at night. Bring bungee cords, clamps, rope to put up big green Heifer banner. We will have a quarter tube available for donations. We discussed a couple of booth activities to attract conversation – a gallon water bucket, baskets of food items displaying what the three groups of people in the world eat, etc. Undecided……Linda will come up with something. We’ll provide cards with the Heifer website on it so people can go there and learn, rather than taking away paper which many are adverse to doing. (brochures, magazines, catalogues, etc.)
  • Projector
    Our Sonoma group will contribute $150 toward the projector the Napa group is buying as soon as we hear they have it. Then we can borrow it when we need it for presentations.
  • Genetic Engineering -
    Jackie sent some of us an online article on genetic engineering and asked if we wanted to pass it on to our group. We decided to only pass on Heifer information and not other issues even tho many of us feel in agreement with them. They can be passed to individual volunteer friends, but not the official whole group.
  • Corner Stone Study - PASSIng On The Gift
    This month’s discussion was Improved Animal Management – securing healthy and productive animals that are appropriate species and breed to the place they are given, and that there is enough fodder and water to take care of them.
    We discussed the appropriateness of milk and it’s products to various places and people the world.
  • Accounting
    Linda said we have $480.52 in our Sonoma account. Some of this is a result of several quarter tubes which she and her granddaughters have filled.
