Notes on our Second Meeting

Date: Wednesday October 6th, 2010
Time: 6:00-8:00pm
Location: South Texas College, McAllen, TX
Attendance: 9 members

This meeting started with introductions of the assembled members and discussions about why we decided to become members. We are happy to have such a diverse group of people, with a wide range of political, social, academic and artistic backgrounds be a part of our new and growing group. Despite our many and varied points of view, we were all able to agree that the way things are going are unsustainable, and we have decided to work together for the betterment of society and spreading awareness of the Zeitgeist Movement and the Venus Project. The majority of the individuals present were attending their first meeting and we are very happy that they have decided to join us.

We continued by watching the first 2 sections of the Orientation Video and discussed them. There was a good discussion about the challenges of raising children in a society that has aberrant values. We then had some discussion about future meetings, participating in activism both individually and as a group, and decided on having a meeting sometime next weekend, preferrably on Saturday. We will announce further details as they emerge in regards to that meeting. In addition, we closed the meeting with remarks about some news items from the national and global movement organizations.
