December Calendar draft – passed around. Will finalize online.

Vagina Monologues – check with Cei on the date, CR could potentially sell items with a percentage of sales going to Voices of Hope. Further details needed – discussion tabled.

Newsletter discussion- tabled

Updates on Support Circle – it went really well according to those in attendance, ideal number about 7-8 in attendance – thanks to Josslyn for hosting! Josslyn may have more to discuss on the topic – tabled.

Button vote – we have requested grant funding for button parts, but since we haven’t heard back yet, and we are in need of buttons now – we put it to a vote. 1000 buttons will be ordered – we have quorum and consensus to order 1000 buttons.

Community Harvest Potluck – we talked about it as much as we were able. Coming up on Thanksgiving, with a potluck and movie here at Common Root. Lacey will check with the event host, Josslyn, to get event details for the website by next week.

Free Saturday on December 10th – CR is doing free, non-denominational gift wrap again. Outlinc is planning to do a card making table, possible community-centered inclusive child care by another organizer. Also, organizer potluck with VERGE peeps at Vine Church that same night 6:30-8PM – we’re all invited. Larry has small boxes he can bring for gift wrap. Sari can bring some ribbon to be used. 

Giving Tuesday – Sari suggests we use listserve to get the word out about Giving Tuesday and make a photo slideshow within in Common Root – Mutual Aid Center Fb page. She showed Lacey how to do this and it’s NEAT!
