  6. Reports
    1. KidSpace – the room upstairs has been released; we have a paper agreement about the South building, which stipulates that we give 24-hour notice that we want to use it; we will try to negotiate an understanding that we will default to asking for use until we know

    4. Ritual Teams – ritual titles are planned out through Beltane as of the most recent meeting, and a critique happened. Kimberly was able to reschedule their class on Egyptian Paganism for December 29th (weather permitting, of course).
    5. Liaison – we have executed the lease and signed it. Kitty moved God Auction due to a conflict with CACSFS (Rosemary’s group) having a standing regular meeting on the weekend we planned on; if we can get it worked out that will free up the 2nd

    7. Membership – Melody and Jan have been coming several times; neither has been approached about joining the community yet.
    8. Stewardship – Matt didn’t make it to any of the Coffee Covens this month, but they did successfully put on the Trivia event last night. The gross proceeds were $147; we need to see if we are reimbursing certain expenses for setup.
