Minutes of 9.3.08 Meeting

The first meeting of a group interested in the promotion of localism and, in particular, the promotion of a sustainable local food economy, was held at the residence of Rhonda Trautman, 289 Winners Circle, Glasgow, Kentucky, at 7:00 p.m. on September 3 2008. Those in attendance were: William Ray, Jerry Ralston, Kimberly Page, Rhonda Trautman, William Travis, and Joe Trigg.

William Ray kicked off the meeting by explaining his interest in the creation of a group willing to create a plan, and promote the plan to all those in a position to effect the plan, for food production independence for Glasgow and Barren County citizens. Each attendee followed by explaining their interest in the subject. There was general agreement that this idea is worth pursuing and that the group should seek other like-minded individuals, both consumers and producers, to join the group at the next meeting.

Further discussion ensued about how the excitement and the conversation could continue. William Ray then volunteered to set up a simple blog and invite all attendees to be authors on the blog so that ideas and conversation could continue at all times such that a virtual meeting was constantly convened.

At about 9:20 p.m., the initial meeting of the unnamed group adjourned.

Okay guys and girls, that is my version of the minutes. Now, when and where do you want to meet again. Respond by clicking on the "comment" link below and following the directions from google blogger.

Unfortunately after checking my calendar, in October we have away soccer games on some Thursdays. I can make it on Oct 9 but that is fall break. How about Thursday Oct 16?

October 16 looks good for me too.
