Happy Wednesday, FAM! This is the first post of 2018 and we feel so grateful to share in another year with you.
Today’s post is incredibly important so please read this carefully.
We are gauging interest on who among out members would be interested in taking a bus from Novi to Lansing and back for the Women’s March on Sunday, January 21st. Please read the details and then follow the directions to answer the poll questions. This is still in the planning stages, but we want to make sure we have interest before we set it up.
Leaving at 8am from Novi (specific location to be determined)
Return time: 4:00pm back at the pick up location in Novi
We are also coordinating to see where we can all stop for lunch and share a meal together.
Cost: $25.00 per person
Space: 56 spaces
Part of the cost includes paying for the bus, the gratuity for the driver, and scholarships for members who want to attend but can’t swing the $25.00. We want all voices who wish to join in to have means to do so. The number of scholarship seats will be need based, so please let us know using the polling options if you would be interested one of these spots. There is also an opportunity to use some scholarship money for members at lunch. Again, we will coordinate all of this before hand.
The process of setting up our bank account has been slower than we anticipated. Because of this, we will have to use a PayPal account associated with me, Anne D, instead of a FAM one. I’ve opened a brand new account so I can provide complete transparency to the group, but want to give full disclosure that this is the process we will be using in order to collect payment.
While PayPal is preferred, other arrangements can be made in extenuating circumstances. I will coordinate that with you. We will make it work so everyone can attend.
Please select one of the following options to let us know your interest. There may be an option to add a second bus but that is not confirmed at this point in time. Your responses will help us plan accordingly.
**ANONYMOUS RESPONSES ACCEPTED! If you’d like to share your response with me privately, don’t hesitate to send me a PM. Please make sure if you do choose to send a PM to not vote in the poll so we don’t double count 🙂
As always, it’s a pleasure for us to serve you and we know 2018 is going to be our year!
Anne, Anne and Jen
