PRESENT: Vince, Alan, Vince Neal.
- Vince report.
- Address on letterhead
VINCE’S REPORT AND LETTER: These minutes will combine all the items on the agenda without teasing them out.
Vince actually made arrangements about the tents at today’s meeting. Vince and Neal decided Thursday or Friday would work if they could get Mike to agree to one of those days. Vince called Mike, and they set up Friday morning to move the tents. Mike will bring them down, and Vince and Neal will get them to Bethlehem Church.
We also discussed the practicalities of sending out the letter of appeal to other possible church host sites. We decided that September was not a good month to do it for a variety of reasons, and so we will send it out after that. This is a time when many pastors are out on vacation. Pastor Nina herself is out until August. We have had both cooperation and some resistance from the City itself.
The content of the letter still needs some work. We discussed mail merges, whereby we print up address labels for the envelopes.
When Neal deals with the tents at Bethlehem, he will talk to John about a mailstop at Bethlehem. Alan will fix the letterhead at that point. It seems a bit crowded at the top. The top of the letterhead needs only contact information, and we can take out the Facebook page URL, and email and perhaps put it in the footer. We just need the mailing address and phone number at the top, under the graphic. Alan will redesign this letterhead when we have assembled the new information.
NEXT MEETING: Normally, we have meetings on the 1st and 3rd Monday of the month. However, the first Monday of September is Labor Day, and we decided to skip that date. So our next meeting will be on September 15.
Thanks to Neal for proofreading these minutes and checking them for accuracy —Editor
