The other day at the mall I stopped at the table for the Women's Place holiday raffle and was quite shocked that one of the volunteers recognized me as being from YJN. My problem with this meeting was that I quickly felt horribly guilty when it was brought to my attention that (as far as she knew) they had not heard from the group in regards to volunteering as they "commonly do at this time of year." I know that the woman's objective was not to convict me, but to more express concern about our uninvolvement. I'm just wondering if there is anything we can do about it? Is anyone interested in assisting me with organizing some form of fundraiser? I mean, even if it is very small, we'd still be helping. I know this is something we would commonly discuss at a monthly meeting...but I think it's been a few months since our last one and I don't think Christmas was on anyone's mind at that time... Some may say I'm just getting caught up in the Christmas season,...but what's wrong with that? Our banner says that we support Women's Place, and I personally believe that we need to do so year round, not just in September. I think that we should possibly discuss when we should have our next meeting (besides the Christmas party) so important issues like this do not get overlooked. If I am being too assertive I apologize. My point is not to offend anyone, but to have people invloved in the group again.
