Hi Kim,

Just to let you know, there was nothing to really report from the last meeting since it consisted of us and Paul, so we really didn't cover any new business. We had a nice picnic over Memorial Day weekend, consisting of us, Paul, Craig & Beth and Sarena (don't think I left anyone out) - nice get together, but again no business covered.

We are drowning in cherries right now & probably will be for another week before they start to drop off the trees.

Hi All;

Paul here. This is partly to test my ability to use the list serve. As Kip said, I've been out to Wooster several time in the past month, mostly looking for an apartment there. I have done some looking for farm land, and in-fact, got a tour of a farm SW of town in Wooster Twp., that might be suitable, with a great deal of negotiating over price.

If anyone knows someone with an apartment, or in-law suite in the Wooster area they are interested in renting, I'm looking. Preferably, I'm looking for something either ground floor or basement, in a decent part of town, or on the edge of town. Anything I've looked at in the area of the college has been really old and pretty trashy. Usually, it's an old two story converted into up and down apartments, and the neighborhood generally does not look like somewhere I'd want to go away and leave my stuff.

I'd like to be living in Wooster by Labor Day. I'm hoping that my being in town and dealing with people there will lead to some contacts on land. I have also met with a woman who contacted Kip and Beth through the FIC listing. She is well-connected in the community politically, and through the U-U Church, and is more than willing to lend us assistance, if not become part of the community. I have hope that her assistance will enable us to get more local involvement with people in Wooster who would like to see Betterway become a reality.

Hope your Summer is safe.  Stay in touch.

Hi Everyone,

There has been very little activity of late & I'd like to hear from everyone on the list as to "where they are" with regard to getting together for a meeting before Fall. Paul has done some looking around out in the Wooster area, but not much else going on.

Beth & I are in the middle of dealing with a family situation that will probably result in our purchase of the house we currently occupy, so our attention is on dealing with that right now - whatever resolution takes place has to be completed by October.

Other than that, it's going to be a busy summer for us, with many weekends already committed.

So, how is everyone else doing?

I'm interested if any outcomes came out of the meeting. I wish we could have attended. I ended up working all night Friday, all day Saturday and most of Sunday and All day today (Memorial). It has been very stressful as a lot of the work was because I made a significant error (in my opinion).

We could not have had better weather, for those of you who got outside!
