Agenda for June 27, 2017 

100grannies meeting

Location: Trinity Episcopal Church 321 E College St Iowa City

Time: 5:30 to 7pm 

Chair Margie Benson 

Note taker Pat Bowen

Early this year, the Grannies made a generous donation to Christine Nobiss for Little Creek Camp, the fledgling Indigenous Iowa sustainable community in Iowa county.  Now the support group, Mississippi Stand Solidarity Network, is aiding the camp with a food drive – which will be needed until the camp becomes self-sufficient.


If you would like to help the camp please bring either a can of veggies or a bag/box of fruit or veggies.  Any donations to Little Creek Camp will be delivered to the camp the next day.
