core group minutes

APRIL 7TH, 2006


MOVIE NIGHT: Watched RENT followed by brilliant discussions. Thank you all who attended.

STONEWALL YOUTH GAY PROM, April 15: No shirt, no shoes, no problem!

OLYMPIA DOWNTOWN ASSOCIATION: Looking for volunteers to help clean-up downtown. Great for networking!



How did you hear about OMP?: Were curious to know. Catch sight of our pretty fliers downtown? Heard it through the grape-vine? Dragged in by your boyfriend? Please let us know. This can help us with outreach in the future.

What does OMP mean to you?: Where is OMP now? What do we want from OMP and where do we want to see OMP in the future? These are very important questions. Help make a difference in your community and make OMP into what you think OMP should be.

WISH LIST: Went over the unofficial OMP WISH LIST. Were growing and need cool stuff. Stop by the office and see if theres anything on the wish list that you or someone you know could donate.
