Last Steps Before Public Meeting

** First, a correction to the address in our last post for this week’s final Planning Committee meeting — First Congregational is at 218 N Adams in Ypsi (NOT River St) at 5:30 Thursday Nov 12. EVERYONE PLEASE PLAN TO COME!

** Also, a reminder about the dry run rehearsal Saturday Nov 14 starting at noon at our host church building, Emmanuel Lutheran ELCA at 201 N. River St (yes, River St!) — all WeROC participants need to be there if at all possible.

With our big Public Meeting coming up in just over a week, the WeROC Planning Committee has identified several “Day-of-Event” Tasks — easy but important things that you and/or members of your congregation or organization could take on to help make Nov 15 an even bigger success.  Please email Pat Jackson at with any slots you can help fill…and please stay flexible in case a task is already filled — there are others!

One more thing…Our Planning Committee is excited — and also nervous — about reaching our target of 300+ in attendance.  So….in addition to the day-of-event tasks, your ability to get commitments from as many people as possible in your congregation/organization, networks, neighborhoods, and families to be a part of the Public Meeting — will help tilt the balance for our leaders away from nervousness and toward excitement.  (And please take a moment to report your progress or any concerns to Pat.)  The flyer and letter are here to help you help us all!
