Next Meeting is July 22 – and last meetings minutes

The next Transition Town Port Alberni meeting is July 22. It’ll be at Dan Schubarts again. There will only be two agenda items for the meeting.

#1: Submitting our application to the Transition Town Network so we can access their resources.

#2: Setting up our first public Open Space brainstorming and group forming type event. This was something that came out of our last meeting. We’ll need to figure out a good time and place.

That’s it! A light meeting for a summer evening. Snacks, tea and coffee will be provided of course.

Hope we can see you all there!
