Sister City Tanzania Committee 12/06/01
In attendance: Clovis, Rosalind, Charlotte, n'Gurumo, Chuck, Ned.
The 11/29/01 fundraiser was discussed. The fundraiser was used to collect funds to ship books and computers to our Sister City Library in Moshi, Tanzania, East Africa. A net profit of $1,310.46 was realized after expenses. There was a previous balance already in the account of $1,050 so the net total is $2,360.46. The shipment will cost us $8,000 so Kjell agreed to donate the debit amount of $5,639.54. It was agreed that more lead-time is needed to prepare adequately for events in the future.
A workshop/planning meeting was discussed. Possible dates are January 9th and January 23rd, 2002 at 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM. The meeting location is to be determined, with possible locations of the Delray Beach City Hall Conference Room or the Delray Beach Public Library.
The purpose of the planning sessions are to develop a 2002 calendar and a strategy for how to carry out the calendar of events and various projects.
Some possible project ideas are:
