ONE: Discussed the many preparations needed to make Victoria’s transition to Silicon Valley successful, including appropriating funds for her relocation, asking the congregation for short-term help with a car, as well as help with a few nights housing while she apartment-hunts.
TWO: Set aside $500 from the Action Plan budget line for improving the welcoming factor of our playground. The Christian Education board will go through our playground toys and vehicles, discarding or selling old or broken items, and looking for high-quality, lightly used and fun replacements. They also would like to create a parking area for the toys/trikes, so if you have skill in carpentry and want to help, let the Board know!
THREE: Explored some core values and principles to guide us as we continue to work towards a redesign of our landscape plan and the Landscape Team’s eventual presentation of it to the congregation. In short, we hold out the imperative that people and relationships are more important than plants, landscapes, designs, and fixtures on the property, and that our work together needs to operate out of those core values.
