Mr. & Mrs. Makula welcome the women
Followed briefing from Rudy regarding birth packing sewing  as per Grace Hull instructions.

Then Mr. Makula read a mail from Grace Hull for the women to check with Alotau shops for kind and price of sewing machines.

Few discussions regards to Fundraising and membership.

These two  topics were brought up by the women.

To start working women elected Dulcie Tobiina as their Leader and Mary Mark as her assistant.

They proposed that as soon as practical and get group confirm each will affiliate K10;00 as membership fee. All women agreed.

So for Fundraising and Membership will be fully discussed next meeting of Sunday 9 September 2012.

Also on Sunday 9 September 2012 all will drop in K2.00 to star off with fund raising. This K2.00 is not a membership fee, it just to kick off with some kind of fundraising drive. Like selling ice blocks etc. few women agreed.


Boyom suggested two leaders needs committee all agreed and will consider this in the next meeting.
Boyom also proposed that the Sewing Machines will be based here with me and when needed they’ll come to pick up.
I explain that I will seek your opinion and then next Sunday meeting will discuss in full.

A women commented that previous a women interpreted  the groups Objectives wrong, saying that this group is for Vakuta  people only .

Then I made full explanation today and in the near future when time permeates I will go to New Kitava Compound and address the community. (That’s ok, I will handle this).
Since that this is the first meeting we had we just shared what’s in the minds of the women.
