AGENDA:

June 1st, Grill out at Peter Pan Park. Looking if we want to table.
11-3 Saturday. Need to find volunteers? Mikaela volunteered to do the Peter Pan Park event with help setting Up. (Larry). Mikaela will bring the stuff to Cooper Park and open, Emily will close out the event with help to tear down.

—Meeting date monthly structure, 15min-Andira
Suggested that we meet only on 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month. Possibly one dedicated to voting issues, one more of a social nature. Flexible, of course. Possibly other days/meetings for special needs/events. Possibly need different name for the ‘social’ meeting. (Brainstorming?)
Might be difficult to remember which Thursday is the meeting night.
A vote was taken, most were okay to move forward on this at the next meeting. One person was against.

—Lincoln Unites Review, 5 min.-Bob
Second year at the Nebraska Museum. First year on a weekday. We had many good conversations, got two new people that came to Movie Night. We sold $15 worth of buttons.

—G2LD, 10min-Bob
May 30th, $30 ad boost for our G2LD posts? Voted to boost the ad Lacey Made for $30. We will try to get some of the data into the notes.
Break

—Heartland Pride Parade, 10min-Bob
June 29th, in Omaha. Meeting in Old Market at 9 AM. Created the event and shared to Collaborative, the two designs were both very popular. Many people voted for both.

—CreateFestLNK Sept. 15th, 2 min-Bob
Wyuka Stables, all creators come for the event.

—Mission focus review & summary points – 20min-Andira
Andira handed out flyers with both ‘General Public’ and ‘Radical Space Focus’ variants.
Voted to use these as our general language for flyers, web page and conversation.
Mission on the back. Highlighting is not great in B&W. Andira wanted to emphasis our core mission.
Notably that giving money to other non-profits is not in our mission.
‘Community’ pretty much says what CRs biggest impact is.
