The NYS Capital Area meeting went well

Postby Ed Pettibone » Sun Nov 18, 2012 9:54 pm

Our new Executive Minister for NYS was the primary speaker but every one participated in in the feedback sessions. The meeting was held at Burnt Hills BC and we collected significantly over our cost for food, although every one ate well. We are contributing the excess to the men's group of a sister church in the association, which is coordinating a trip next week to help with the continuing cleanup in the NYC area, necessitated by hurricane Sandy. As of Saturday they did not know exactly where they will be assigned. That decision will be made by the groups facilitator, our ABC-NYS Disaster relief person and the Red Cross leadership in NYC. In addition to supporting this trip some of the churches represented at the meeting pledged to work through our regional office to make contact with sister churches in New Jersey through their regional office to offer assistance on a one on one basis. They have been told that there is still a great need for tree removal, something this group has had a lot of experience with in Louisiana .
