At our second Thursday night session of the Gaithersburg Neighbors for Neighbors group with Gaithersburg Neighbor Corps, we tried out our new agenda that the group came up with at the first session. We started with a check-in, then did Support Action time, and it went really well!
Maricar asked for support on finding affordable healthcare and Samira, Judy, and Tim all gave her some information about Priority Partners for her to check out. She also had a friend who was getting evicted and had 3 kids, so Judy and Tim told her to have her friend come to the Neighborhood Service Center the next day. Bill asked for support for the Gaithersburg library that’s being demolished and renovated and Patricia wanted help getting signatures for her county council campaign. I asked for support for planning a small baby shower for Claudia at our closing ceremony on Saturday and Patricia offered to bring some balloons! Thanks to her help, the baby shower was a lot of fun and a special surprise for Claudia. (More about that in the next post!)
We didn’t have time to get into our action teams, but Jean Paul and Kathie wanted to add a new action team to the list: a mission statement writing/editing group! So stay tuned until next week to see what happens…
