I've got a list of members who I'm gonna send a PM to to let them know about the G2G ...just in case they haven't seen and/or responded to the thread. Hopefully, by doing so, we'll get more people to respond and increase our chances of having a BIG get together!!!

What about dates?!?! Any suggestions on a date to have this?!?! I'm good for any weekend after T-giving!

Amy...what's the name of the facility we're going to use, again?!?!?!

Moncrief Park in Gardendale, Alabama
The park is free
"Park Place" is the building you can rent that is heated, with a bathroom and kitchen, tables and chairs, and outdoor grills, tables, chairs, porch swing, and it's $40 for the day.

http://www.cityofgardendale.com/park.htm Click this link, then scroll down for "park place" and then for "moncrief park" to get the visual.

Here is a website with pictures of the park, information, directions, contacts, and even pictures of Park Place (it looks like a house, but inside it's more like a church fellowship hall.)

It will be during the weekend, Shea!

Alright...how about the second weekend in January?!?!? Either the 11th or 12th. I'm open for either day...so, let's get some feedback to see which day would be best for the group!!!!

Im up for any weekend that we can decide on. I work 7 on, 7 off, so if it falls on my weekend to work, I will just trade. This sounds like alot of fun! I cant wait to meet everyone! I'm a pretty good cook, so just let me know what I need to bring. I live about 20 miles south of Huntsville, so Birmingham is fine with me.

Oh Pepper Thank you GF for keeping this going. And Amy you too for checking out the facility.\
I feel Alabama needs this G2G for us to bond and understand our needs. This is our side of life that others dont see or understand.
For now any date is fine for me until I know when Kairos Council will start up 2008 meetings. Our last one this year is Dec 8th and I think then the upcoming year meetings will be given then.
If its okay I am going to bring information about this group for anyone who is interested and might want to be a guest. And I might add find out if your loved ones prison holds Kairos Inside and encourage them to attend a weekend. I am not sure how they would do it, whether it is a sponsorship from another inmate who has attended one or if the inmate can get on a list or both.
I will look up in my paperwork and find the list of Prisons who do have them available. Just dont have it with me right now.

Sounds GREAT, "Granny"!! I'm sure we'd all love to have that info!!

Okay, so let's go ahead and set the date!!

SATURDAY, JANUARY 12, 2008!!!!

I know it's 2 months out...but, hopefully, this will give anybody who wants to attend a chance to make arrangements and resolve any schedule conflicts!! We'll keep this thread going as we need to figure out who's DEFINITELY going and what each will bring!! Hope to see everyone there!!!

This is awesome!!! lahill...I'm soo glad to see you're going to be able to attend !!

Now, what type of food do we want to have?? Do we want to do finger foods or maybe get chicken or pizza once we get there?? I'm not much of a "domestic diva" **lol** so, as for "cooking"...I dunno ?!?! But, I can make a Texas Caviar Dip that is pretty yummy!! Whichever ya'll want to do is fine with me!!

I'm excited, too!! This is gonna be great!

I dunno, Blue?!?! If everybody wants to have a "sit down" type meal...we could take up money from everybody and go buy chicken or pizza...something that's not too expensive. Or, everybody could just make something and bring it. That would probably be easier since, the facility has a kitchen. Just heat the food up or actually make something there?!?! Like I said...a Domestic Diva...I AM NOT!! So, I'll DEFINITELY be bringing something easy!! I'm staying with one of the other members the night before and she's coming with me...so, between the two of us, I'm sure we'll bring 3 or 4 things. Glad to know you're planning to join us, Blue!!


What would ya'll rather do?!?! Bring food/snacks or buy something once we get there?!?!?!

Amy, Kairos is a prisoner ministry. I've been reading up on their works...very interested in getting involved. I've heard my guy speak of Kairos as well. It's a really good organization...doing alot of positive things.

January 12 is great for me. As far as food, it does not matter to me if we order it or bring something. Either way works for me.

Amy,

Kairos is a Christain commuinty of Volunteers who strive to meet the spiritual and emotion needs of men and women either in prison...thus Kairos Inside...and for now women who have love ones inside....thus Kairos Outside..and for junveniles incarcerated or in"Juvy" ...Thus Kairos Torch.

This is and International Organization that holds 3 day retreats inside the prisons and Outside in the US and Austrailia, England and S.Africa. In most cases anyone who attends an inside will try and get their female loved ones on the outside to attend a Kairos Outside. It is a life change Experience for those who attend. The Weekend for Women is a no-cost reatreat held twice each year somewhere in Alabama. The women are treated as Guests for the entire Weekend, pampered and loved by other women who share their lives through a series of talks and meditations. It is non denominational and not a "bible thumping" weekend. Just lots of unconditional love like we find here on PTO. And yes God is part of the weekend!
Hope that helps to explain it to you. I was a guest on weekend #13 and on Oct 07 was our 21st weekend where I spent the weekend as an angel working in the background.
If you have any other questions just PM me Amy or anyone else!

Happy Thanksgiving All and Safe Travels for you!


((((HUGS))))

Alabama Granny
