We’re calling out to all our members and fans to join us in a discussion for the future direction of Slow Food Cincinnati chapter.  We, as a chapter, are undergoing reorganization and we want to hear from you on how we can keep SFC alive.  Tell us what types of events you want to have for 2011 and what you want to gain from Slow Food Cincinnati chapter.  And finally, for those that want to volunteer your time with the organization, this is for you.  Some of the areas where volunteering opportunities are available: Communications (blog, website, emails) and Outreach (start contacting restaurants/farmers, get their support), Finance (bookkeeping, budget, treasurer) and Event Planning. 
The meeting will be at Park + Vine on Saturday February 26th at 10 AM.
