Peace and Love Family!
Committee Meetings….please make sure you have chosen a committee to be involved in for the farm. Ive once again attached the descriptions of the committees to remind you which committee is doing what. (I know I get confused to)
Another thing…right now we are in search of not only committee members but the actual Board of Directors. Lauribel is not active presently and True is really busy with business and both cannot focus on this project. We really need people who can be active to get this project pushed through. Right now its me as the President and Director and Joany as the Secretary. Just to keep this in mind….we will work on that part later…month or so.
Please confirm your attendance to each meeting…and as usual it will be recorded.
