Work party project matching (Sara)

Sara proposed coordination of work party activities and booth member participation and skill sets.

Proposal: Council sets construction schedule, council members lead tasks, and booth coordinators arrange booth member participation and learn skills booth members have to help match them with needed work/projects.

This builds on previous practice. More communication, both ways, and planning will help.

Stay tuned for village construction schedule, communication between council and coordinators
