Interim report: Jan '96 - June '96

Office Work

Our office continues to be a place where volunteers meet and discuss the logistics of the Project. Due to the lack of a full time (or even a half time) Office Manager during the past six months, general organization and contact with all of our emotional and financial supporters has suffered. However, things are getting back into shape after some recent changes and the location of a full time Office Manager. The office received its first proper overhaul (repainting, reorganizing, cleaning) in the past half year. Though we have to transport our office to another former Long Term Volunteer house at the end of August, the over-all tone of order and the atmosphere of a pleasant space for work and socializing will remain.
