Work Project Requests / Krugers' work party 6/26 & 6/28
« Last post by Suzanne Meeks on Yesterday at 05:20:17 PM »
Dear ONEs,
     Jon & Jule will host a work party from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, June 26, and Friday, June 28.  I understood that they wanted to CUT cordwood -- but this is incorrect.  The wood is  already cut, and will be combined with mortar to form walls.  So instead of chainsaws, take sturdy rubber gloves and small spatulas to smooth the mortar with (Jule says some as small as butter knives are needed for finishing -- and yes, you can use them to draw pictures in the mortar if you're careful!).  As always, if you can stay for lunch, take a dish to pass. 
     Directions:  160 to Co Rd 829 (only turns north) -- 2 mi then R on Co Rd 818 -- 1/2 mi (over low-water crossing) -- L on Cordwood Way.

The weather probably kept people from attending tonight. Only myself George Craig and Pearl Schneider attended. After 20 minutes we left for home.

Meeting Minutes / Minutes 4-5-19
« Last post by Suzanne Meeks on May 03, 2019, 11:06:33 AM »
OZARKS NEIGHBORLY EXCHANGE   Minutes 4-5-19

     Thom called the meeting to order at 7:05.  We introduced ourselves; there were 15 present.
     Minutes:  Suzanne read the Minutes of the 3-8 meeting.  George moved to approve; Chuck seconded; approved without opposition.
     Treasurer's Report:  Balance  $1,002.42 (no change from March).
     Sorghum:  April Wilson said not to take the grant if we're not positive we're going to use it, so Jon turned it down, since sorghum-growing energy has waned.
     Chipper:  Ini's chipping was done; an acre of brush was cleared for a fruit orchard.  Lisa estimates 3 tons were chipped in 4 hours.  Lisa took the chipper to the home of one John Gluff, who had ice-storm damage; she estimates 4 tons were chipped in 6 hours over two days.   
     At Ini's, an elderly gentleman was present who had tremors and didn't seem to understand how life-threatening the chipper can be.  Lisa said he was the only one there who wasn't on constant alert.  Even despite constant close attention, Lisa was injured by something she didn't see that flew out of the chipper.  We don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, but physical safety has to be paramount.  If anyone is behaving unsafely around the chipper, the only prudent thing to do is to shut it down.  It's so loud that calls for help probably could not be heard; maybe we need an emergency flag or something.
     The chipper wouldn't start after Ini's so Lisa got a new battery.  She paid $113 (list $169).  She also got a tie-down for the battery (under $10).
     Lisa handed over $60, $5/hour (Lisa used it 2 additional hours). 
     Lisa asked about chipping for someone outside the group.  We don't
have enough business for it, and Lisa put "helping the community" on the grant as one of the reasons we wanted the chipper.  Someone from our group has to be there, and safety has to be maintained.  Let's ask $15/hour donation for non-members -- still much less than renting a chipper commercially.
     Work Party:  None now, but Jon wants to reserve a slot in late June.
OLD BUSINESS
     Baker Creek:  Jon will go Sunday, though the director hasn't emailed him yet.  Jay has the banner, and will take it; he's going anyway.  Jon will have the flyers re-edited and printed to take along. 
NEW BUSINESS
     Meeting dates:  George noted complaints about having the meeting nights  change.  He said the first weekend of the month is popular for other events, and we get bumped.  Maybe we could move to the second or third Friday.  Several said  they would support a change.  George will check the church calendar and report next month. 
ANNOUNCEMENTS
     Lisa's potential A2 heifer turned out to be positive for this (a milk protein easier to digest than the more common A1).

     Next meeting:  7 p.m. May 3.  Thom will not facilitate; in the absence of a volunteer, Thom noted that in anarchy, people rise to the occasion, though not always the people you would prefer.

     Thom's talk will be summarized in the appropriate section of the Forum.


                                     Respectfully submitted,  Suzanne Meeks, Secretary

Telephone Messenger / May 3 meeting

Hello,
     This is Suzanne from Ozarks Neighborly Exchange.  I hope you haven't let time get away from you as badly as I have.  Even though I'm late announcing it, our meeting is at the regular time, 7 this evening.  We have no facilitator, so someone will need to step up.  Hope to see you there.
