Green Greetings,

Thanks to everyone who made it to the meeting Wednesday, our attendance has
been up significantly since we gave up the office, go figure.  This week we
took a groundbreaking step by hiring our first paid staff member!  We are
hoping this long-awaited move will be a big step towards improving our
organization and effectiveness, and expanding the party.  A warm welcome
goes out to Michelle Monares, our new part-time fundraiser/volunteer
coordinator, please be nice to her if she gives you a call. ;)
