    Summary from last nights planning meeting: Meetings - We will continue with our format of meeting for a guided discussion on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 7 pm at the Coffeeshop of Athens and a dinner event on the fourth Wednesday.

    Lectures – Members mentioned an interest in gathering for free lectures, etc. available for the community, such as those through UGA or the Athens Science Café, https://www.facebook.com/AthSciCaf.

    Contribution – We will explore options for getting involved in helping out in the community. We will start by looking at Campus Kitchen, servicelearning.uga.edu/campuskitchen/, and/or Adopt Athens (roadside, park, etc.), athensclarkecounty.com/1388/Adopt-Athens. Other ideas welcome.

    Fundraising – We will begin to explore fundraising options to raise money for promotional activities. Bring your ideas! Helping out - Ricky volunteered to coordinate a fundraiser. Catherine volunteered to get information on UGA lectures and Camus Kitchen.

      I'm going to see if I can make this Wednesday. I'm supposed to work until 7pm, but I'm going to ask if I can leave early enough to come to the meeting.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
