Hi Potential Work Trip Folks!
I am continuing to work on plans for our 2014 trip. Laticia Godette (at Hyman Chapel AME Zion Church, last year’s site) and I are working on possible projects in the same area of North Carolina that we visited in 2005, 2006, 2008, 2011 and 2013. Meanwhile, we have a bus, we have dates — March 14-23 (Hanover High March Intensive Week) — and we have some excitement about working and having fun together.
I know that Hanover High kids are in the midst of decision-making about their March Intensive plans, so this would impact that planning. Students from other schools would need to be thinking about whether they could plan for a week of community service at that time.
So, it is time to think about fund raising. The holiday season is always a good time for this. In Norwich, there will be a Four Church Bazaar on November 9, and we could set up a table to sell things there.
We are also thinking of making some packets of cards to sell. And bake sales are also easy to schedule. We have often done a church supper sometime after the New Year.
So, if anyone wants to begin working on that, it would be great.
Also, if you know you want to come with us in March, or know that you can’t, that would be great to know also.
If there is a need for an organizational meeting to get us started, I can make time for that. And if you have specific questions, please send them along.
Talk to you soon.
