Community Service?

I forgot to bring it up at the business meeting but I have been thinking about the grove and community service.  I know that we collect food for the food pantry.  That’s good and we should continue with that.  However it seems like we could be doing more to contribute to our community.  I know many grove members are not local to the Syracuse area.  I’m not quite sure what kind of thing we could do that everyone could participate in given the distances involved.  Perhaps we could have people come for the whole weekend and work on a project of some sort.  I know last month St Marie among the Iraqois had a clean up day.  Maybe something similar to that?  Just something to think about.

    I think community service is a great idea. I would say that our next gathering is out because of the vigil, but for Lughnasadh or the Autumn Equinox we could agree to meet earlier on a Saturday – at a park perhaps – and do some cleaning.

      I mentioned it to Ellie and Jen at our Druid Scouts meeting. We talked about maybe doing something with one of the walks for various causes. We would need to look into it more. Jen mentioned a duck walk to end racism I believe it was. I talked to my mom who is active with her ovarian cancer support group. She mentioned that one thing they need help with is making ribbons to give out at the Fair. There are lots of things we could do.
