Eat, Drink and Build a Treehouse! (and solar arrays)

This should be another great meeting! We're going to set the groundwork for a few interesting events...

- A potluck dinner at John's beautiful place in Leicester

- Building a treehouse at John's

- A workshop to build solar arrays on wheels

 

In the meantime, please note these changes determined at the last meeting:

- We have decided to return our meetings to only the first Thursday of the month since we typically also have monthly events planned

- Meetings will begin at 7pm

- Due to your response, we're reducing the SUGGESTED donation to $5+ (paid at each meeting) to cover costs (website, food, events, supplies, etc). This may instead become an annual membership donation.

- Time and budget allowing, we will provide some good eats to keep your tummies from growling (feel free to byo)

- New policy to discourage RSVP no-shows will be determined. (We had an embasrrassing 25% RSVP no-show at the Deltec Homes tour costing our host unnecessary time and money.)

Feel free to comment. Your input is very important to us!

Thank you and see you soon!~
Kris

    Funniest meetup ever ;). Nice people and great "attention-out" (not always the case at such things)

    I really believe in downsizing, but wonder which is better - a community of tiny houses or a collaborative home, and the same number of people? Which is more sustainable? More economical? More fun? I'd love to see this be a topic of discussion at a meeting sometime.

    OK, this time it is my bad. I just finished a ten hour cleaning job - well, actually, I'm not finished since I forgot the sheets and have to go back over with them and make the beds - so did not call as promised. If I don't fall over I will call tonight.

    Would love to join tomorrow's event (8/31). What is the possibility of coming and filling in for a no-show

    1 · August 30, 2013

    • Kristen S.

      I'm not sure. Come join us but bring $15 for pizza in case there's a no-show AND and a sandwich in case there isn't. Enjoy!
