Attendees: Judi, Lucy & Matt Falcy, Nicole, Shari
I. Slow Food. Our enrollment numbers are unclear. We also don’t know if we need 20 by December or by our 1 year anniversary. Lucy is to call Katie to ask her to ask SF to send materials to Nicole.
II. Canning Demo. Demo kitchen at fair available for rent. Holly Berry may do canning demo on September 22 or 24th. She usually charges a small fee, perhaps she would donate it to SFYC. Judi is to write a press release as soon as the details are known.
III. Meeting Schedule. WE ARE OFFICIALLY CHANGING THE MEETING DAY TO THE 2ND AND 4TH MONDAY OF THE MONTH. SAME PLACE, SAME TIME. OUR NEXT MEETING IS NEXT MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 8TH. Lucy to send out special notice, Nicole to update blog.
IV. Web site. Angelina, will you please add other YC names to the website ‘hit list’ (e.g. Newberg).
V. Grant. Lucy came up with a grant application for the YC Cultural Coalition. Group said it looks okay but Lucy is going to change some numbers to more accurately reflect what will be SF’s contribution. This could be big and fun. YC Soil & Water Conservation is also interested in ‘helping’ and Lucy has been talking with Tim S. As a result of this, she had to send an ‘off the hip’ list of potential farms for the tour.
VI. IDEAS. 1) Menu for the future party. 2) October apple party/potluck…(@ Oakhill Organics?) 3) November local cheesetasting event (w/ a fee). 4) Winter SF Movie night at First Baptist—ideas please. King Corn, Dirt on Farmer John, etc. We are trying to get stuff on board to carry us through the long, dark months.
