OK Great Andrea & Myna Lee! We could put something on the Climate Action Table. Any other ideas for the table I'm very open to hear. Thank you!

great idea Andrea but let's extend it beyond Artspring and establish a name so that all other groups can get on board with it when they host an event
We could have a little table or info stall at the Film Festival if not too late to ask for space there
some names for this:Carbonnaires!
CommuniCar! CareCars!...

Hello folks. Having recently completed a community development process on behalf of the United Way, I learned that seniors living at home have a really tough time on the island once they are no longer able to drive. I'd like to use this group to explore ways we could look at promoting volunteering through existing programs at Salt Spring Seniors Services Society, and look at Ridesharing options that piggy-back on events and venues on the island. In Victoria, for instance, a program called Social Butterflies allows patrons attending the theatre the option to pick up an elder on their way to and from a theatre production, so that the senior is still able to have a social life. We could do something similar through Artspring. Any other ideas most welcome: and please, if you have any spare time and a car, there are many seniors who would very much appreciate rides through the Seniors Driving Program. What better way to spend a day than hanging out with, and helping, one of Salt Spring's treasured elders?

Would you or someone on this group be able to send me an e-mail with some information for the Transistion booth at the Fall Fair?

we need to stepup our info and education about ridesharing

since Andrea has been so instrumental on this, we are probably waiting for her return

However, in a Transitions group, we shouldn"t become dependent on one person

Does anyone jnow when she will be back?

In the meantime ,let's find a way to get all members of Transitions into the habit of posting ride offerings when they are driving somewhere for an event and off island

I suppose we could just send out a general email and have them post here until we find someone who  can do a state of the art Rideshare/google type map (or does that already exist and we need to learn how to use it?)

Any comments?
