Welcome

The current installment of the COEC began meeting in 2007.

We are currently on a "break," for no particular reason, and many little reasons - mostly pertaining to life circumstances. If anyone is interested in calling a meeting, feel free to post on the blog, join the google group (see link below) and send an email, or contact either Nancy (nancykj10@yahoo.com) or Jesse (schroeder.jesse@gmail.com) for more information.

Trash Pick Up

Let's clean up Mother Earth for Mother's Day!
We are breaking from our routine this Sunday and doing a little service project.

We'll be picking up trash in Weinland Park where 3 of us currently live, and several others have lived over the past couple years. We'll meet at Nick's house at 3pm. We will have pickers and trash bags, but no gloves if you want those. Feel free to come when you can. We should be easy to spot.

Why do we do this? There are few acts more loving towards our neighbors than cleaning the places where they and their children live. If a community is clean, people treat it with more respect and start to respect themselves more. Also, it can be rewarding and satisfying to pick up all that broken glass and litter. If you've never done it before, it is almost meditative.

Post comments or questions- hope to see you all on Sunday!

I'm sorry I didn't make it. My brother wound up taking to his house as I was feeling so bad. I'm back home now and feel a bit better. I would sure appreciate prayers.

My brother took me to the Audabon (Spelling?) Wetland park SW of downtown. Wonderful place. Perhaps we could do a meeting/picnic there?
