I read the announcement, and although it seems like it might be an
interesting event, I have no idea what group is sponsoring it, where in the
world it is being held, or why it was put on a list serve that is supposed
to be of general interest to the whole cohousing community.  Please be more
careful in posting things that are of limited geographical interest,
especially ones that do not specify what the geographical location is.

    Bill McGrath will sing three songs for us on Armistice Day! Waltzing
Matilda, Last night I had the strangest dream, and the ballad of Willie
McBride.

        Colleen, we allocated money for bagels, coffee, and donuts. I would
recommend Steve to help on the Op-Ed since he is the most knowledgeable.

            Hi you guys!  I'm not sure I can make it to the meeting tonight
but if not, I wanted to send the (very) slightly revised flyers and press
release (both attached) for our joint T3-VFP Armistice Day events.  I also
put a couple hard copies of both the press release and the flyer on your
office door.  We are going to try and really get the word out via emails and
flyering in the next couple of weeks, so maybe you could just ask for people
to help.  I'm copying WAMM as by the time our meeting ended, we had taken
the flyers we had made but maybe WAMM could make a few more (20 or so?) and
put them near your office door.

            I remember that someone in your Chapter was connected to the
Unitarians, so it would be good if we could get more announcements out, not
only unitarians but also other church groups.  We just need help in
promoting and flyering. Does anyone have contacts with other veteran groups,
(American Legion, VFW, DFL "veterans caucus", etc that he or she can get the
announcement to?

            We talked about the Nov 11 coffee and thought we could also
spring for rolls (and/or bagels) or at least go "halvies" on the cost. Could
you please see if any in your group could be responsible for buying and
bringing the rolls/bagels.  If no one wants to, let me know and I'll do
that.  Also, I think there is a large coffee maker there already---maybe
Suzanne knows how that works---but we'd need to make sure we have the coffee
perking.

            On Thursday, Nov 10, we are planning to take the two speakers
out to late lunch (2:30 pm ish) after the Hamline Convocation at Gary King's
son's restaurant the "Draft Horse," 14th and Marshall, Minneapolis (two
blocks north of Broadway). You (and all the VFP) would be very welcome to
join us only we need to know the guesstimate number ahead of time.

            Finally we are going to try and draft an op-ed for Star Tribune
which would be focused on how original intent of Armistice Day has been
hijacked when it was turned into Veterans Day but we would try and slip in
mention of the events into the op-ed.  We were hoping to get Mike Madden or
Dave Logsdon to help with the draft (op-eds are only about 600 words, max of
700 so not that hard to do and we already have a start as Tom D and Sara got
their op-ed published in the Southside Pride.  With pegging it to Armistice
Day, war weariness of 15 years so far of "perpetual War and staring into
abyss of new WWIII--see Ray McGovern's latest:
https://consortiumnews.com/2016/10/11/russia-reads-us-bluster-as-sign-of-war
/, there is a real chance that we could get it published if it's well
written.
