Dakotas Walk to Emmaus Board Minutes – September 15, 2018

Board Members Present: Janice Antrim, Steve Eliason, Peggy Hora, Betty Janke, Dean Johnson, Jeanne Olson, Scott Rodman, and Andy & Susie Ryks.Jeanne Olson, CLD, called the meeting to order.  Pastor Janice led the devotional & prayer. Quorum was established.

Primary focus of today’s meeting was planning and establishing Team Training Agenda & Practice with the first date set for November 10th at Riverview Church in Huron, SD.   Talks will be reviewed if some are ready.

Plan will be to use Nov. 10th for training team members for both walks. Mark and Lisa will need to establish the additional team practice weekend dates and alert team members and the board of the dates.

The agenda for those dates would be to start Saturday mornings by 9AM with talk reviews. Community Gathering could happen at 12 noon with meal for all.   Team practice would resume at 1PM and be completed by 4PM. Board meeting would happen at 4PM.   FRIDAY night agenda will be dependent upon how many talks need to be reviewed and how much team training needs to happen.

Prior to the walks a newsletter needs to be sent out including Sponsor tips and guidelines.

There was discussion regarding possible new board members and possible sites for hosting future walks especially to include easier North Dakota accessibility.

No Board meeting is planned for October at this time. Next board meeting scheduled is 4PM Nov 10th at Riverview Church, Huron, SD.

Meeting was adjourned and communion service was led by Pastor Janice.

Prayerfully hold upcoming walks, team formation & practice weekends in your prayers, please.

Respectfully Submitted,

Betty Janke, DWTE Board Secretary
