Thanksgiving event

Hi guys,

Time to pin down the date for our Halloween potluck. The majority of group members who responded to the earlier poll seemed to strongly favor having this event the weekend before Thanksgiving. I just checked with the Humboldt Area Foundation and their space is free either day (Saturday, 11/21 or Sunday, 11/22), so we just need to pick a day and reserve the space. I just put up a new poll in the sidebar at the right, so if you could take a moment to register your preference, that would be great!

We'll be discussing ideas for activities to do after the meal at our upcoming business meeting; if anyone has ideas about that who won't be able to attend the business meeting, please feel free to throw them out now so they can be included in our discussion.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon.

HVS Business Meetings

Hello group members,

Hope you are all doing well and enjoying this lovely fall season.

At dinner last week, several group members expressed support for the idea of beginning to hold regular 'business meetings' for our veg society in addition to our ongoing social events. These meetings would help give direction to our future efforts and hopefully help us brainstorm some fun/educational events and projects for the group.

I'd like to get a sense of how many people would be interested in attending these types of meetings (I was thinking maybe every other month), and of those who are interested, what days/times and locations would you prefer?

If possible, I'd like to schedule the first HVS business meeting for early November, so please let me know ASAP if you're interested!

Take care,
