Sorry it's been a few days. No excuses, just didn't take the time I guess! :)
Anyway, yesterday was our board meeting for the COAD (Community Organizations Active in Disaster for Monroe County) and it was a good one, even if there were quite a few member who were unable to attend.
We were able to line out each board member with their "job task" thus eliminating a bit of confusion.
Our new logo is still in the works and will hopefully be ready for us to check out the new ideas before too long.
I am in the process of trying to get us a table at the weekly Saturday Farmers Market where we can be visible and let folks know about our organization and how they might be able to be involved. So far I haven't been able to get into the website area to pull up the forms to complete but . . .
We'll also be working on a flyer or brochure to use at our setup.
With our next general meeting the end of next month we talked about really getting into some disaster training. My goal is to focus on case management at that next meeting. Case management is the heart and soul of disaster relief and recovery and hopefully at the end of that meeting we will have someone step up and want to fill that position within the organization.
The emergency relief supply warehouse is still on the table and I told the board that it will be on the agenda for every board meeting and every general meeting until someone decides to donate a space for us to set up! Whether it be a storage facility, an office area, an old warehouse . . . wherever! It will come --- in God's timing!
So it was a good meeting with alot accomplished. I am anxious to see where God is leading both me and this organization over the next few months!
Still waiting to hear from the Hartsville team as to when they can return to Don's. With this intense and record breaking heat I imagine they are hoping and praying for a brief let-up so they can come and finish the roof. Again, God's perfect timing!
I would ask for some personal prayers --- tomorrow I will be spending most of the day undergoing a battery of tests at our local hospital to determine if I am going to need to change my lifestyle due to the heat strokes or if something else might be haywire! Not a fun day but hopefully one with some answers! Thanks for your prayers!
Until next time . . . God is good --- all the time! Susan and Monty
