5. No Organized Activity in the Arb
Last day of the Ann Arbor Art Fairs
Saturday July 21, 2012, 4:19 pm
If you and the family happen to be picnicking in the Arb to end out the Ann Arbor Art fairs, don’t be surprised by serendipitous meetings with friendly faces, musical instruments and picnic baskets, in the main meadow, toward the river. Because the Arb has firm rules against organized activities, we feel it is important to make sure that if folks show up there, as many often do at this time in July, they understand they are freely assembling of their own volition, and that no one will be organizing anything on their behalf.
6. Fall Clownshow
October 20 and 21, 2012, at the Darling’s in Perry, MI
Start time: 4:30 pm.
II. Other discussion items:
1. Marijuana is more legal then ever.
2. If the Turtle Soup Kitchen is to serve at Occupy Detroit (or Occupy Lansing), we’d need some Family to stay with the kitchen 24/7. Though general support was expressed for the #Occupy Movement, no one in the circle was able to haul the kitchen and stay with it for the duration. #Occupy may be more in need of expertise than equipment.
General Assembly meetings take place for Occupy Detroit Saturdays at noon and Tuesdays at 6pm.
