We are back to using the same call-in number each week, which is 988-202-1449. There will be a meeting on the 18th. If there are any women interested in hosting in the future, it’s not hard, and training is available. Contact Jim or Ramon if interested.
The Regional Helpers have been doing testing after call-in Latihan on Sundays, but some members are may be missing it because they don’t realize it’s happening. There have been some really good test questions, so you may want to stay a little longer on Sundays to be part of it.
Oswald Norton presented the current state of SGS finances to the Committee on October 10th:
We have a new phone number for the Sunday post-latihan Zoom meeting. The number is 988-202-1449. Please use this number for October 11th, and watch the SGS email on Wednesdays for updates as they occur.
Ricardo had “a feeling” to check the Subud House on September 18th, and sure enough, he found one of the hoses on and water in the basement. He reported this to Oswald, as Jim was taking a well-deserved vacation. Oswald reported the damage to our insurance company, and he and Marston arranged for a company to remove the water and dry the whole area, and for the carpets in the men’s hall to be cleaned. The carpets should be back in 2-3 weeks. Ricardo and Oswald trained a camera on the stairwell that leads to the basement, and Ricardo replaced the outdoor faucets with some that are tamper-proof. Thanks to Ricardo’s follow-through on his guidance, and Oswald and Marston’s quick response there is no lasting damage.
Spring Street Center has been doing whole house rentals in response to concerns about house sharing generated by COVID-19. We are in the process of linking ourselves with a company called iTrip Vacations Seattle that will list the house not only on Airbnb but on multiple short-term rental platforms. Debbie will continue doing the cleaning and finding event rentals for the halls, when that is safe again.
