Meeting Minutes

  Rockbridge Greens

January 14, 1997 - 7:00 P.M.
Rockbridge Library, Lexington

Present: Eric Sheffield, Stephanie Porrass, Sherry Stanley (note taker), Kathy Fox

Work: During the meeting, the members of the steering committee stuffed and addressed envelopes for the GOV fund raiser.

1. Minutes: We read and approved the minutes of the November meeting, our last official meeting because of the annual Rockbridge Greens party in December.

2. Steering committee: We nominated ourselves to serve as the steering committee, accepted our nominations, and welcome others to join us.

3. Rockbridge Green Pages: Eric reported on our progress re the Rockbridge Green Pages. We have decided to compile the list of local businesses and services in an electronic version. This will go on our web site.

We already have three volunteers: Eric as volunteer coordinator/recruiter,Tom Ahnemann as data base consultant, and Nell Bolen serving as website coordinator. Once we get the Green Pages in electronic form, it then would be fairly easy to move to printed form some time in the future.

Eric asked that we send out this information and requests for help to all Rockbridge Greens and then follow up the mailing with phone calls. He asked that we set aside $300 for mailing and advertising costs in our efforts to compile the lists. We approved of the effort and the funding.

4. Levy proposal: Eric proposed that we ask the GOV/GPVA to increase the levy on locals from the Current $2.00 per member per year to $300 per member per year. We supported such an increase.

5. Future meetings: We agreed to continue meeting on a monthly basis for right now. Next meeting 2/11/97, 7pm, Rockbridge Regional Library.
