Greetings Time Trade Members,
 
We are in full summer swing.... as we northerners fit a year of outside activities into 3 months. Graduations, weddings, vacations, concerts, reunions to name a few. During our last pot luck, we decided that for the summer, we would cancel our monthly pot lucks. This frees up members to participate in the many activities previously mentioned and gives the administration some time to organize and relaunch in September.  
That doesn't mean everything stops!
 
There can be trading, lots of wonderful services are available.  In lieu of not obtaining hours from coming to the pot lucks, MTT is offering a GET TO KNOW A MEMBER option. Look over the membership, and call (1 credit), meet up (2 credits) with a member you don't know  or would like to get to know better. A great way to connect.... which is what Meadville Time Trade is all about
 
Another opportunity is Second Saturdays. I am planning on having a presence at one or two of the Second Saturdays in downtown Meadville. We have a bean bag game that displays wants/needs. It's a good way to initiate discussion about timebanking and there will be info on Meadville Time Trade available. If we have enough folks interested we can do this.  You would only have to commit an hour, (1 time credit)  for promoting this wonderful community asset. Call or email me if you are interested, 853-5412 or newcampstabile@gmail.com.
 
Lot's of opportunities to earn credits and be a part of Meadville Time Trade message of connection, resourcefulness and support.
 
 
 Have a great summer...and see you in September!
 
Barb Newcamp
MTT Coordinator
 

PS. Take some time to look over your services, if you need help doing this, call me or Betty Petrella for assistance
