Farmer’s Market: A booth will be set up joining GVIN and Together Colorado on Sept 12- 5:30-8:30. It is fully staffed, but any are welcome to come and support. Materials from GVIN need to be brought that evening to be distributed.
Interfaith Awareness Week:
All felt it was a success—more activities and participation than last year and see it as a work in progress. We need to have more outreach to faith leaders and congregations so members know when and what is going on.
Ideas for next year: A movie held at the Avalon? A panel of Interfaith leaders for Q & A or discussions on various topics. Set dates earlier and more publicity.
New Business: Proclamations were given to Carlene from ALC to have displayed at their church. These will travel and another faith group will receive it next month.
