Hi Davisites

1) PR Efforts

Ducks are being lined up in the background here over this last month. 
Here is a list of some things volunteers have accomplished.

     - We now have a logo, a vinyl printed banner of the logo.

     - We have a draft of a long form talk for service and community 

     - We have social media links on our test website, and a paypal 
donation mechanism.

     - We have one letter done for the Enterprise.

     - We have checked the DFM regs for having a table and are ready

So its time to get out there, and talk to our community, and build 
excitement for this coming project.
There are 2-3 more things that need to be in place before we hit the 
communtiy as a whole with the news, but those should be relatively 
easily done by the first week of June.

Following our aforementioned published PR plan we will be tabling on 
Saturdays at the DFM throughout the month of June, and *NEED VOLUNTEERS* 
to come and populate the table, eager and excited about community-owned 
fiber broadband.

Please see the document here: https://goo.gl/xFFYgu

and sign up to take a shift. If you are ambitious and have time there 
are some 2-3 tasks left to do, plus please free to add any you think are 
missing in the PR area.

2) DCN as a Fiscal Agent for this project

DCN volunteers have created a draft MOU Agreement to be the Fiscal Agent 
for our efforts. Part of the PR effort of course involves raising funds 
to get the project rolling and approved. They have moved that a seperate 
General Ledger account be created specifically to recieve and distribute 
funds for the effort to make community owned broadband  fiber a reality 
in Davis.

Please contact me off list if you are interested in being part of 
editing this draft from the Davis Gig group. I'm exempting myself, from 
this as I'm on the DCN board.

We also need someone willing to authorize and sign to it as a 
representative of Davis GIG, the ad-hoc citizens committee.

3) Fresh Website

A new version of the site is available at www-test.davisgig.org.
This was also done to make the front end of the site more easily
maintainable by the current web team volunteers. The backend has not 
This has incorporated Davis imagery, social media links, and a counter.

You can now donate through the paypal link button. Please do so, so we 
can purchase
PR materials from local Davis businesses.

I'd like to invite everyone on this list to please take a look, and 
donate what you can.

4) Meeting in June?

Anyone want to have a regular meeting? My thoughts are, there will be a 
lot of effort put in this month, so perhaps we should just see how it 
goes with the outreach, see if people signup, and if donations begin to
