SOS Meeting Notes – August 5, 2014

MEETING NOTES 8-5-14:

OPERATION OUTREACH – Archie Lidey

  • First EVENT GP Saturday Market
  • Pat Fahey, Phil Killian and Archie Lidey (Saturday, August 2, 2014)
  • How did it GO? It went well. Many people look down at the ground and barrel through the area on the southwest corner of the Saturday Market, where traditionally, political tables are set up and people entering the market are accosted. SOS is promoting a united community which is safe and there really shouldn’t be any selling.
  • Many of you know my motivation comes from my desire to be the light for the children of our county who have no light—no hope to run to for protection against the dark. I encourage all of you to Google the story of Jeanette Maples who at the precious age of 15, died Dec. 9, 2009, of abuse in Lane County, Oregon.
  • We reviewed our general SOS Flyer, which was well received by our public
  • We also have flyers for the MAT-C and our Lottery committees
  • Our OUTREACH Booth will have the following Logs:
    1. Business Log, for Josephine County businesses who want to become partners
    2. Idea Log for people to write down their suggestions as to how we can solve our criminal justice system dilemma funding
    3. E-Mail Log for people who want to get onto our email list
    4. Victim’s Log, for people who want to share their victimization as a result of our decimated criminal justice system
  • Poll—Linda Scott spoke briefly about the upcoming decision by our Community Research Committee to begin developing a scientific poll or if we should we continue with additional focus groups and how that decision will be made this Monday (August 11, 2014)
  • OUTREACH Calendar (Gordon Edstrom will be putting our OUTREACH event calendar up on our website; thus far, we have the GP Saturday Market and the JO CO Fair)
  • We agreed to participate in the Josephine County Fair which runs from August 13-16 and will cost us $350; I will be sending out an e-mail asking for you to participate at our booth; regretfully, you will be responsible to pay your own way in and also for parking; the fair is on desperate times and cannot afford not to charge, so we shall support it! THANK YOU in advance!!!
  • Fair Sign-UP Schedule (will follow this e-mail)
  • if you would like to join this committee, email archielidey@gmail.com
