Sisters of the Road Cafe holding a training this saturday morning

I wanted to invite you to a free training taking place Saturday, July 26th from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon at the Cafe titled "Introduction to Community Organizing." The training will be facilitated by our Co-Founder Genny Nelson who is also our Program Director for Community Organizing and Systemic Change at Sisters. Please return e-mail me to sign up - and come a little early as we will have bagels and juice available. This is a great opportunity - I hope you will join us!

As part of our Bluegrass & Old Time Music Festival & Benefit that will take place September 12th - 14th (check out our website for more info!) we are having a silent auction at the Friday Night Hoedown. We would like to ask you, our community, to consider donating (a service, an item, something fun, creative, whatever) for that auction. Many of our members who are cooks donate a cooked meal or a cooking lesson in someone's home, others donate a house concert or lessons of some sort - how about you? Return e-mail to me if you are interested and I will send you the form to get you started. If you have already donated to the auction - thank you!
