OCF PETITION DISCUSSION – 15
Please see the CV Drum for discussion of the member action to initiate a vote of membership on the removal of Jon Silvermoon as a member of the Oregon Country Fair’s Board of Directors.
Some villagers have expressed their opinions in village lists, including that the recall is misguided, divisive, and falsely premised. Also see the opinions expressed in the Fair Family News, many from Villagers: https://oregoncountryfair.net/wp-content/uploads/bsk-pdf-manager/2023/01/0123ffnJan2023.pdf

NON-FAIR ANNOUNCEMENTS – 10
Sue is accepting donations of goods in support of OCAN. Contact her at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Actually a fair question, how should newcomers get involved in Community Village?
By attending village meetings, introducing themselves, and participating in booth breakdowns starting at March village meeting.
By going to the People and Jobs page on the CV Website, reviewing the booths, and contacting a booth coordinator. Or contact a CV Coordinating Council Member who is the liaison to that booth and request an introduction.
