    This is a wonderful opportunity to see old friends and meet new ones, be inspired and learn, and eat great food, much of it locally grown. I attended 2 of the 4 components and enjoyed them both.

    About the Paradigm shift game:
    The game is Paradigm Shift. Players exchange Dollarocracy, where the earth
    is ravaged by consumer addiction, for a conscious local economy where
    people engage their Wildest Dreams and together express the healed world.

    Kay Williams has been back to the land since 1985 in Cumberland County
    Kentucky. Founder and manager of Otherworld Food Co-op, she has given up
    world-saving, and instead gives her energy into living the saved world.

    Round up those auction items! Help out the auctioneer as follows: Any article of clothing, please securely fasten a note on it telling the men's /womens/ unisex, size, material (cotton, linen, yak wool, etc), if it is hand made, vintage... made by Peruvians, etc. Anything that is special.

    Any item that needs a description or explanation, please write on a note and securely fasten to item.
    Possible auction items: Home made, handmade items, jelly, jams, baked goods, home made wine, beer, flower bulbs, seeds, baby potted plants, musical instruments, tools, books. Nice things you want to pass along.
    Remember, you can donate services too, just describe on a card with contact info and the $ you usually get for your service.

    for potlucks, please label dished for ingredients, especially if contain meat or not. **Potluck **Re potluck items for Saturday lunch at church building
    Both vegetarians and omnivores (meat eaters) are attending the potluck. Please label anything that is not simple to identify as to whether it is vegetarian or meaty. Some food dishes contain meat that is "hidden". Obviously, a roast chicken is meat. A rice/broccoli casserole cooked with chicken broth has hidden meat. Also, if you bring food that looks like meat and is tofu or gluten, etc, please label. Label sandwiches too.

    We need a vision that respects the intelligence of natural systems.

    When I was setting this up, I managed to forget that we always ask for a $5 per person donation for the Saturday session, because the church charges us for use of the building. You can make this donation "at the door" when you arrive on Saturday, and will not be turned away if paying it is a hardship for you.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
