The regular business meeting of OutWorlders was held on Sunday, 15 October 2006, at 2:00 p.m. at Atlanta Diner. Wm S. Boozer, Dan Benge, Robert Marshall, Jeff Smith, Shelby Smith, and Bruce were present.
Last month’s proposal to donate $200 to CHRIS Kids, Inc. was voted upon. The secretary did not receive any emailed votes. It passed unanimously during the meeting.
Every year Atlanta OutWorlders’s gives to Chris Rainbow Project some money to help their cause. They have changed their name to CHRIS Kids, Inc. You can review their organization and mission at www.chriskids.org.
It was proposed that Atlanta OutWorlders Inc. designate $100 to spend on the Holiday Party scheduled for December 16 at Robert’s house.
Shelby will investigate possible projects for volunteering, including CHRIS Kids and the Atlanta Food Bank.

The nominations process will be open until the end of the next business meeting, November 19.
