- Report on the Fund-raiser letter and the AG
market booth. Response to our appeal for funds was outstanding. Thank-you
letters were sent by Lu to donors.
Our current balance is
$503. The APJ
presented a check for $300 as an honoraria, which has already been
cashed. In addition, we have
$50 from Jim Gravious. On Oct. 12, Ralph will sit at the market.
- Report on Sis and Jerry Levin
presence Sept. 11. The
presentation was discussed and we particularly enjoyed the personal nature
of Sis’s presentation.
Jerry’s presentation may have been perceived on the harsh side by
some. Some members of the
community were disturbed, though the need to hear the other side (i.e.,
the Palestinian side) is recognized.
People seem to have appreciated the talk generally, but it may have
been more constructive to specifically address actions that we could
take. $351 was also collected
by those in attendance for their mission in Palestine.

distributed. Lu will get permission from

note will be sent to the AUUF for the donations, meeting space, room to
