Things I’ve been Working on This Month 

  • Creating a protocol for cookbook orders online, pick ups, etc.

  • Organizing goodie bags to members

  • Using Helpful Village for Laura to streamline sending her daily emails to volunteers. Right now because gmail limits the number of addresses she can send to in a single email, every time she sends the e-blast, it is don’t in 6 separate batches.

  • 2021 Budget – so hard to know what the year ahead will bring. Bring staffing back up to 4 (unlikely in 2021), what kind of fundraising events, etc.

  • Made a follow up presentation to the Cape Cod Church on Nov 8. Because of COVID, there were only about 150 congregants attending in person, though as many as 1300 may have been attending virtually. Three prospective volunteers signed up to learn more.

  • Attacking the waitlist

  • I am planning a “staycation” for Nov 30-Dec 4. Laura, Fran and Jackie will cover the phones while
    I am gone
