5 Minutes of FAME!
It's gonna be "OPEN MIKE" & Social. Seemed like a few people had things they wanted to say, announce or suggest. (SUGGESTIONS ARE FREE - this time only) Wouldn’t YOU like a chance to chime in. 5 Minute time limit - there will be a bell and hook if necessary!
Do you know of other similar groups and/or events coming up you’d like to tell us about? SPEAK UP!
Do you have a skill set, talent, you’d like the community to know about? Here’s your chance!
Working Group leads – Tell us about what you’re working on, solicit more help, how about a progress report? Ask your team to meet with you (at 6:00 if possible) to move things forward and firm up plans you already have in place. WE DON’T HAVE A MAIN RAFFLE ITEM YET!
If you’ve got something cool to give away – post below so we can promote it. ALL donated raffle items are not only appreciated but they’ve turned out to be very popular too!
FOOD & CONVERSATION – It’s what we do best.
Let’s have a big Pot Luck. We’ll set up tables (instead of just the pass through). Bring some of your harvest food, gather up some of those edible weeds we keep hearing about, heck, stop by Publix and grab something! Nobody here is that picky. PRESENTATION for JULY - there will be a power point of the images collected from all the organizing groups*. Our personal on-going efforts. Success, (or-sigh) failures of the season just passed. AND our recent workshops & events!
If you have images we haven’t seen yet, post them in the next week or two so they can be added.
ATTENTION LURKERS (we mean this in a good way) Consider this your personal invitation to come out of the internet shadows and meet your neighbors! Bring whoever you can drag along. The larger the population the greater the resiliency. WHAT YOU MISSED LAST MONTH
