New from Jim

1. We will have a general meeting in Seattle after Latihan Sunday, October 13th.  We hope to hold the length to 1/2 hour.
We would like to discuss increasing our donation to the region.
2. The region has retired our loan of $7000 for house painting and has converted it to a match as we raised that much in earmarked donations, thanks to the generous donations from members and centers locally and throughout the United states
3. The region still needs a secretary, and if not a secretary then someone to transcribe notes from the regional board meetings which take place as conference calls.  This would be a great boon!
