The guild is considering changing to a less formal structure with out officers or collecting dues.
Among the changes discussed at the September meeting were the possibility of seeking a new, more central location and meeting at an earlier time, potentially from 4 PM to 6 PM on the first Thursday of the month. Potential locations discussed were the Putney Library, Putney School, Putney Community Center, and the Putney Cares Barn. We will continue to meet at the Brattleboro Savings and Loan until December, by which time hopefully we will have made a decision regarding the new location. Beginning in January, all future meetings will be elsewhere. Members are encouraged to email the list to discuss this and any other ideas for a new location, and any other suggestions for changes to the guild.
Once the guild have chosen our new location, we will compile a detailed list of all the equipment; this equipment may also be made available to the public, though anyone interested in making use of it will be expected to pay a deposit and provide contact information. The "rental" period will be a certain number of days, at the end of which the equipment must be returned to the guild. All this is also open to discussion among current guild members.
Please bring any thoughts, suggestions, and ideas to the October meeting!
