Dear Friends,

This invite note is a follow-up to my earlier communications regarding a new interactive webinar series that I would like to add to our current Community Action Network gatherings. Here is a link to more information about these current gatherings:  http://timebankswork.net/tiki/tiki-download_file.php?fileId=463

Our Wednesday, January 17, 2018, test interactive webinar attracted two participants.  The test interactive webinar worked easily for us and I’d like to try this again.

The theme, Creating Abundance, feels like a good focus for the Community Action Network. If there are no objections, I’d like to use Creating Abundance on Subject line for these particular interactive webinars and email conversations.

The NEXT Creating Abundance interactive webinar is February 6, 2018, 5 P.M. EST

Please RSVP as soon as possible?  Then enter the interactive webinar a couple of minutes before the start time. Here is a link to the website

box_bottom.gif
  • Sign up to do a table spot exhibit or mini workshops. A Table Place where a community member shares hobbies, talents and knowledge.
  • Share your Do It Yourself Skills – We need volunteer FIXERS to set up repair stations. Fixers bring a few hand tools, small tool set for minor repairs. Repair for example small electrical appliances, computers, clothing, housewares, bicycles, etc.  And neighbors are invited to bring their broken stuff for repair, including any necessary replacement parts.
  • Be an Event helper  do what ever to make this event a Success.
  • Donate to the “Really Really Free Market” with gently used clothing at the swap table.
  • Co-host with your smiling face and helpful demeanor and chat with neighbors. If an item is not fixed, ask can it be recycled.
  • Bring your safe fun kid activities or games using recycled materials. It’s family-friendly!

It’s up to us, you and I, to Co-create Sustainable Thriving Tomorrows.  We’ll co-create our tomorrows when we knit and know our network connections, share hobbies and passions, or make old things work again.
