What’s happening, November 2022
There is lots to report. We have been absent for a few weeks – ok, several weeks – but we have the excuse that we were away from home. Your Editor is committing to a new post weekly on Tuesdays except if said Editor is ill or otherwise nonfunctional. Because there is SO much going on!
The Planning or Steering Committee met in August and October and has some new members! Joining yours truly (Pres), Laura Wallace (VP), and Jodie Stevens (Sec/Treas), are Ron Brownfield, JJ Towler, Shannon Campanelli, and Jan Dix. Shout-out too to Debbie Parmelee who doesn’t attend meetings but serves as corresponding secretary. We are actively looking for additional committee members to share the work of bringing this idea to fruition. It’s starting to get exciting! The next Planning Committee meeting is Tuesday, November 29th at 2 pm. If interested please contact us at email@example.com for details of the location, which is depending on weather.
Laura and Maryann, aka Editor, have met with JABA and CNE, and our city councilor Juandiego Wade, to introduce them to our plans. We plan to meet with The Center soon to update them on developments since we last met with them in 2019. We have 3 more meetings in November: 2 with current/former Village directors/founders from other Villages and one with Brian Ullman, the fundraising guru of CNE. This work is going to take some money, and we need direction for finding it.
Look for an email around the middle of the month. And don’t forget to VOTE!
