**Pie & Play is on vacation until the Fall 2015**
Social gatherings play a vital role in building a vibrant community. Potlucks, swaps, drop-in chats, and the like are important opportunities to network. Schmooze. Mingle. Chat. A single personal connection can open many doors, and when you consider that many of our timebank transactions are initiated online, it becomes even more important to make personal connections within our network of members. We realize that – like many things – member satisfaction with timebanking correlates closely with member involvement: the more you put in, the more you get out. It’s the nature of our reciprocal community to give when someone’s in need, and to believe that members will be available for YOU when you need it. But it’s hard to ask for help from people you don’t know. We want our members to get to know each other, to actually shake hands, look each other in the eye, to converse – and to learn more about each other than their user name. So, starting this month, we’ve set aside the third Sunday of every month at The Haven for Pie & Play Days!
- 2:00 to 3:00 pm – Sanctuary Stewards: We asked our newest organizational members, The Haven, about ongoing needs at the facility, and we have been asked to help take care of the Haven Sanctuary with a monthly spruce-up session. Dusting and wiping down the gorgeous 200-year old pews and sills beneath the stained glass windows will really make the space gleam — and we hope you’ll come help! All cleaning supplies (and music!) provided.
- 3:00 – 5:00 pm – Pie & Play! We’ll move downstairs into the dining room for some playtime – and yeah, for PIE! Bring a deck of cards or your favorite game – or join a table! And if you need a reason to practice your pie-making skills, by all means – 🙂
- 3:00 – 5:00 pm – Swap! We’ll have a few tables open at one end of the room for limited quantities of good swap-ables – used or new – odds and ends that might be happier in someone else’s home. Declutter your heart out!
