Hi Everyone,
Eric G is taking the lead on this as Will and I will be attending a memorial service on Saturday.
Don'd forget to bring a pair of work gloves and maybe a rake or a small pair of pruners.

Environmental Community Service / Cemetery Cleanup for the dead
« Last post by carynml on October 23, 2017, 10:55:13 AM »
Rob Walshe let me know that there will be another cemetery cleanup this year on Dec 9th at 9AM.  These usually don't last but a couple of hours.  The cemetery is not far from CedarLight and in the Hamilton area.  `

 It's an old abandoned cemetery a few blocks south of the grove at 3821 Forrester Ave, Baltimore MD 21206.  It was a private cemetery used by the farming families that owned the land back in the 19th and early 20th century.  The local community gets together about once a year to clean it up and CedarLight has helped out in this in the past a number of times.

The months of November (Samhain) and December (Yule) both have all kinds of associations to the dead and are thus quite an appropriate time to be doing a little service for them. 

Please let me know who might be interested so I can coordinate. 
Thanks!

Dark roast coffee has less caffeine in it than other roasts. This is why breakfast blends are always a blond roast. I'm happy to bring dark roasts up as they are my favorite type of coffee.

Perhaps we can schedule in one housekeeping session and one yardwork session per quarter? Or a general "work day" once a month on a day we don't have workshops already scheduled, and we can split up both those areas? I'll fully admit that I'm a terrible housekeeper, but my grandmother did teach me how to vacuum and wash windows.

CedarLight Announcements and CedarLight Events / General grove information
« Last post by carynml on September 24, 2017, 01:09:23 PM »
Creating a list of general information for members.  Please feel free to add to the list.

The CLG Events Calendar
You can link your gmail calendar with CedarLight's calendar and our events will show up in your calendar. This is very handy if you have a tight schedule like some of us. You go to your gmail calendar and on the left side about 1/2 way down your will see, "Add a friend's calendar." Click that and type cedarlightgrove@gmail.com. Once linked, you have to make sure it's clicked so that it will show up.

The High Rite Attendance Book
We are required by ADF to provide the number of folks attending our HRs in our quarterly reports.  In that respect, it does not matter what name is in the book.  However, if you are a member and interested in keeping your voting status up to date, it is in your best interest to write a name that the Member Coordinator is going to be able to recognize.

Grove Needs
Items that commonly need to be restocked are the same as in any home:  tall kitchen bags, toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, zip lock bags (quart and gallon for leftovers to take home), crock pot liners (these make cleanups soooo much easier), sodas (I can’t buy all of them), coffee (apparently the dark roast is easier on the stomach), coffee creamer, sugar, honey, tea (esp if you have a favorite), hot coco, white vinegar (for cleaning), dish detergent, etc.

Things we continuously need help with
House cleaning:  bathrooms, kitchens, windows (Baltimore has a lot of dirt and dust in the air sometimes), porches, pavilion, sweeping, moping, vacuuming, the basement (oh gods the basement)…. Seriously, one or two people just can’t do it all.

Gardens & Yards:  Weeding and tending.  Our gardens need a lot of supervision or they will run quite wild on us.  Please help!   Folks to help mow and weed whack in the summer is also really helpful.  We can’t expect our Grove Warden to do everything, it’s just too much for any one person.

I'm sure there is more.  Thoughts?
