Community CAPS Meeting
Creating change in the immediate future
My sincere apologies to those who showed up, eventually, for Community CAPS. I was there for about 30 minutes and absolutely nobody showed. I thought maybe I mistakenly posted the wrong date. The snow was coming down and I assumed that people just weren't coming. I had received ZERO RSVPs from folks. Mis-communication seems to be the culprit, but there is no excuse.
Being on that corner alone was almost intimidating.The place was locked and I couldn't get in. I left and went to another meeting where I was able to find out that I indeed had the right date.
I was very disappointed. This was the first time anything like this ever happened. I promise that it will be the last! We will establish a protocol and make it clear on what point the meeting becomes postponed.
Unless the city CAPS programs change and bring a monthly meeting back to 624 there WILL be a "Community CAPS meeting held on the 4th Wednesday of April, June August and October. Book it! Even if they reinstate we may still emphasize a separate "grassroots" CAPS meeting. Together we have to drive this process and make it happen.
Unfortunately, I quit in spirit and left. That's not me, but it's on me and I hope it never will be me. My sincerest apologies for not being there for the loyal.
Please forgive me.
A luta continua
