It went great, despite a few technical problems during the slideshow and an attack by a stray "safety" pin. After going over last year's highlights, and some upcoming conventions, we began planning our first fundraising and community outreach events of the year. This Spring, we'll be setting up a booth at the local farmer's market to sell seedings and encourage steps towards self-reliance in our communities. Proceeds will go to the NWA Food Bank, and possibly towards the development of a community garden as part of Fayetteville's Gardens in the Parks program if space is available. We also toured around town looking at locations to hold a Bug Out drill, and a vandalized and unoccupied historic building got the vote. We'll do some cleaning up while there, to combine some community improvement with our training.
We keep an updated contact list that includes everyone who's been to an event/meeting or PMed me their info.
