In attendance: Jackson (moderator), Ty (secretary), Wyatt
Start time: 7:15 PM
(Meeting slightly delayed due to some post-yard sale clean-up time)
1. Event Review – We had our yard sale, and it was a success! We had less stuff to sell than years past, but we sold most everything we had, with a final total $726.90 funds raised altogether and only a few totes worth of stuff leftover to sell next year or via online sales.
2. Upcoming Events – We have a grand total of four days worth of events this week! A committee meeting to plan the Nebraska Left Conference is Tuesday, and we’re hosting. We just need to get the room cleaned up further after the sale. Friday night is Salt of the Earth. Hopefully since the room will already be clean by then, we only need to get the projector and screen up and call it good. Saturday/Sunday, the NE IWW will be here for organizer training. Same deal; should be clean, should be fine. We’ll see what kind of accommodations the group needs, as we’re still not sure the set-up they’d want.
3. Books – We got a ton of books for the library! The latest from AK Press came in, and we also got some donations from a friend. Jackson also bought some books and zines from Indigo Bridge during a sale, totaling $22.51, which he would like reimbursed. We’re chill with that.
4. Summer Calendar – Tentatively, the calendar is done!
