The Kent Community Time Bank seems like an amazing idea for any member of our community. I have been intending to get involved with the organization. It seems like a good way to get to know members of your community and benefit without spending money! Looking over their websites, there are members with a wide variety of skills, volunteering earns you time dollars that you can then spend on the services of another member. Need a pie baked? A sitter? A massage? They seem to have it all. They apparently lack a plumber. More information to follow as I get to know more about the organization but you can explore for yourself at their Facebook site or main website.

Friday, September 2 · 6:30pm - 9:00pm
Timebanking is a concept that takes a while to grow on you! Those who come to the potlucks are growing the fastest! It's true!
Join members for a wonderful harvest potluck and learn more about our wonderful timebank family and all that it has to offer.
KCTB welcomes special guest, Travis, from Empower Portage. Travis is really excited to tell you how timebanking will weave it's way through their life changing program and how you can take part to earn time dollars!!
In addition, as requested, I (Abby) will be at the shelter early to tell any interested member about my experiences at the National Conference. This informal meeting will take place from 6:00 p.m. to 6:30! I am excited to share with you timebanking at a National Level!
As always, we need help with the potluck in terms of setting up, taking down and bringing some beverages. Please consider taking a task this month...earn a few more time dollars and make the system go round!

Excited to welcome September in with all of you!
