OLD BUSINESS:

1. On 10/22/2023, Carol O. and Mary Z. manned at table at Pfluger Pfest as a way of letting area people know about CRW/AVA. A 5k walk was also offered. There was little participation and this activity is not recommended in the future.

2.  The next CRW sponsored walk, East Austin Art, Culture, and Trails will be held 11/18/2023 with 6k and 10k routes. The start point will be The Victor Garza Community Center. Several walkers refined the routes during the past week. There will be other activities at both check points, Canopy (art) and Urban Roots (gardening/farming).  These activities are not included in the CRW walks, but can be visited at a later time. A sign-in sheet was passed around for volunteers who would like to staff the walk.  

NEW BUSINESS:

1. A new time/day was selected for meetings – Sundays at 3 PM to allow members to attend during day light and non-working hours.

2. A discussion about a holiday celebration at our next meeting (12/10/2023) took place. CRW will have a short meeting followed by snacks and merriment. Terry S. will order snacks from Central Market and Larry will order wine. No presents will be exchanged.

3. Terry S volunteered to host an Opt Outside walk the day after Thanksgiving (11/24/2023). The Pflugerville YRE will be used. The start time will be 9am to 11 am.
