That's Kim McMann, third from the left.
We had a great interfaith meeting today, with old friend Kim McMann, who many of you know from when she led Target Hunger in Northern Berkshire, speaking on the anti-poverty approach “Communication Across Barriers.” Among Kim's many qualifications, she is a certified speaker on this topic.
Her hour-long discussion was great and included some interpersonal exercises. Kim was a big help when we started the Friendship Center Food Pantry. It was great to see her again.
Linda Huebner, with Allan Dallman from the Food.
Our first speaker was Linda Huebner of the Yes on Question 3 campaign, which will be on the Massachusetts ballot in the November election. In short, it is intended to prevent the cruel confinement of farm animals. It also has food safety and environmental implications.
I intend to recommend to our Board of Directors at our next meeting that we officially endorse this campaign
In all, 13 people attend this, our first public meeting since the spring. Our next Interfaith meeting will be held on Friday, Oct. 21, at 10 a.m. at First Baptist. We don't have a topic yet, so let me know if you have an idea: firstname.lastname@example.org
