Meeting Minutes by Kyler Boyes
During this meeting we enjoyed trials of group process techniques that are new for this group. We enjoyed this learning experiment. We may try to use other group process ideas in future meetings.
This is an evolving group which wishes to draw interest from those who have not attended, and renew interest for those that have. We are open to new people coming to participate, and be involved.
