Peter R invited the 3 guests to introduce themselves.
VP Andrew led the meeting.
1) Dawn, JC, and Mark have worked on the safety document. Mark wants to finish a basic draft to adopt and then later amend. A goal of a draft by the 15th was floated.
The suggestion for signs for safety equipment was raised.
Dawn noted that letting people know where safety materials are should be in the orientation package.
2) Fundraising - still interested in income ideas to fill $500 / month gap
- Grant writing was discussed. "It seems terrible" - Blake
- Graham has become a sustaining donor.
3) Discussion of tools
- Blake found a donation service for tools and will pursue more information.
- Blake was commended for the donation of a drill and for removing the carpet from the woodshop.
