Oct. 13 minutes

Sorry so late, I’ve been sick. Lucy.

Oct 13th 2008 Minutes.
Present: Lucy, Nicole, Judi, Aimee, Marsha Macke

I. Potluck. Went well. Approx 30 attendees. Contest went well and got people thinking about creative/different recipes. Cider press was a fantastic addition and should be repeated next year with our without an apple themed meal (jury is out on that one). It might be neat to have a manual grinder to get more people physically involved. The press was from Mike Bahee. Next year perhaps we could pair or follow up with a talk on what to do with cider…jelly, etc. We might also want to consider a talk on ‘all things to do with apples.’ Thank you Dan Brown for hosting…we heard that you enjoyed it an we might call upon you again. For future consideration, Mark Bialy of Carlton Cider Works does french style apple cider (hard). A tour might be nice.

II. How to eat lawn talk. Judi has sent materials to NR. And has mailed to general interest list. She will touch base with the library but will NOT be there on the 25th. Seth & Leslie. Thank you. Do you need anything?

III. Membership. We are up to 12 members but still need AT LEAST 8 more to make our requried minimum. We are considering moving meeting days back to Wednesday. For next meeting, please come up with the following: a list of what people can do; a 2009 goals list; and a thought on our current catchphrase “Expanding access to locally-grown and produced food for everyone in the region.”

IV. Misc.
Angelina is to put updates on the blog (see Nicole).
(Note from Nicole; I've forgotten what this was about, so you'll have to see Lucy!)
November event: Peacemakers showing of Movie at Linfield. Susan and Nanette are contacts and need to get a date scheduled. Judi will also be communicating with them and let Lucy know if you want a farmer on the panel so that Lucy can get one.
December Potluck is in a house in MAC…perchance a ‘holidays from around the world theme’
January event: potential showing of “Tableland” and potluck. A challenge due to availability.
Nicole to get a bee speaker for a February meeting.
Lucy to come up with draft brochure by October 27th!
Lucy to call about grant.
