Steve, Jennifer, Greg and Mary in attendance.
* Music following Community meal on Sept 16 will be provided by DJ Santanero, who is Juan Nieves, Ignacio’s brother. Ignacio’s wife Patricia will contribute a Mexican dish of some kind to our Community meal this month.
Greg and Ignacio are leafleting the neighborhood this week with flyers about the meal and the dance.
Steve has notified KFAI about this event and it will be announced on air.
Greg suggested a Halloween Costume Party. We discussed the idea with enthusiasm and decided it would work best on Saturday Nov. 1, and that we will try to get Salsabrosa to play for it. If that band cannot do it, then Steve has another contact for a salsa band through Mary Laurel. This band might also play on Day of the Dead…or on one OR the other!
As soon as we know if we have a band, we will begin advertising this dance.
Potential Dance on Oct 18 was cancelled.
Steve is working on getting Brass Messengers for Nov 28 and South Side Aces for December 13.
We discussed having Mardi Gras celebration on Mardi Gras, which will be Feb. 17th. This date coincides with Community Meal and we thought we could have a New Orleans type of meal and we will ask Dave West to head up a Dixie Land Jazz ensemble again for the dance. Mary will ask Dave and Mary also would like to have games for adults set up in the narthex during this celebration.
Mary is going to prepare a little synopsis of an “ad campaign” for Walker for the Council Meeting on Sept 30.
People who can post to Walker’s Facebook page: Walter, Steve S., Deb Ramage, Al Hildenbrand, Willow Cordes-Eklund, Jera Peterson.
We changed our meeting day to Wednesdays…every other Wednesday at 9:30 AM…next meeting is Sept 24 and Mary will not be there.
