Last month, we convened at Rachel's shared community space to take a step back from our work and celebrate the burgeoning local Fair Trade movement. Members contributed a wide assortment of potluck dishes and beverages, with many Fair Trade choices in the mix. We had a very enjoyable time learning more about one another and discovering shared passions and interests.
Next, we look forward to a ramp-up in activities starting at the end of the month. We will be hosting our next General Body Meeting on August 21 to continue welcoming individuals who are interested in learning about Fair Trade and getting more involved. There are a slew of events and Fair Trade fundraising opportunities this fall and winter, for which we are starting to organize.
