Hi gang,
I must say, I’m pretty new to this blogging experience (if that is in fact what I am doing here)….? Uuuuhm, well, I’d like to reiterate my enthusiasm for the Time Bank, and I’m looking forward to getting things rolling. Below is my initial list of contributions and needs.

S0 — yeah — when do we get together again? I have some friends who are interested in participating. How many people should each of us “core” folks bring to the next potluck? And, again, if y’all wanna have the next one at our house on Fry, it’s cool by me. Lemme know……

Thanks for coming to the potluck today. Feel free to email me with questions, etc. (clevelandtimebank [at] gmail [dot] com) and if you decide that you want to participate, let me know and I’ll set you up as an author on this blog. We can use this as a forum to discuss ideas, plan, share information, etc. Please post any thoughts or links or start a discussion. The core members of our time bank will need to make a few decisions regarding how we want things to run before we start the bank, such as how do we want to recruit new members, what do we want to set as the yearly membership fee, who wants to take on some leadership roles, how often do we want to get together, and so forth.

An important part of time banking is building community, so as we get to know each other better, we will feel more comfortable asking for help, and get a better idea of things we can do for each other. We want this to be fun. Fun. Fun city.

Once we actually start the bank and have access to their software, we can each have a profile on Community Weaver. Until then, please post a little bio here–some background, interests, things you might need, funny stories, photos, whatever. I’ve done a small one to break the ice.
