It would cost $10/night and could be reserved on an ongoing basis. If a local community group pre-empted one of our meetings, another space would be found.



Note: I've turned this into a table, and listed a bunch of churches and orgs that were suggested to me at last night's Outreach meeting. I don't know much about any of them, but it was suggested that they might all be receptive to hosting town hall meetings and such.  -Eli Cohen          To print use landscape (sideways) and it'll print ok, eden
