Dear TC4 supporters: It sounds like TC4 has plenty of nails for the move, and may be okay for other supplies. Thanks!
Because the move day will be a Friday when many of the usual volunteers are at work, it will be helpful to have some extra volunteer drivers to ferry people from the old site to the new. Jan Bennett is coordinating this. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can also use some hospitality volunteers to make and serve lunch. Steve Burk is working on that — TC4meals@gmail.com.

Dear friends of Tent City 4,
The permit is signed for the October 21 to January 21 hosting of Tent City 4 at the Community Church of Issaquah. It is time to start getting organized for the move. We have the attached list of needed supplies from the camp adviser. It is best to take the supplies to TC4 at Temple B’nai Torah in Bellevue, if you can, but some members of the hosting committee will also be going over before the move from Community Church of Issaquah, if you can bring the supplies there.
A major concern of our committee is that this move will take place on a Friday. I have a prior obligation for that day and many of our usual volunteers will be at work. Your assistance in recruiting some volunteers who can help with transporting people between the sites would be much appreciated!! A few hospitality volunteers to serve coffee, cocoa, and sandwiches to the workers would also be a blessing!
If you would like to help with transportation: contact Keith Madsen at email@example.com, and Jan Bennett at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want to help with the move day lunch contact Steve Burk at email@example.com

We currently have 5 recipes that need to be claimed (somehow there is no contributor name). We want to make sure you get recognition for your entry, so please contact me if you have any difficulty adding your name as contributor or making changes.

We now have 51 recipes submitted as of tonight. Many more are still needed in order to go ahead with the TC4 benefit cookbook. The encampment desperately needs the funding for things like tents and tarps that wear our rather quickly since they are constantly exposed to sunlight and the weather. Another ongoing expense is bus tickets for the residents to get to and from work and interviews. With rare exceptions, it is OK to submit a favorite recipe from another source. An everyday favorite is every bit as appropriate as your most glamorous holiday dish.
See this article for more information on submitting a recipe.
This is a great opportunity to generate awareness and funds for TC4. Could really use some help, though…
Would anyone be interested in helping out with the design, artwork or input on the personal pages? We have some limited page space to fill with info (I can pass along the specifics).

We really need your recipes for the tent city cookbook. Below are the complete instructions for how you enter recipes onto the computer. We can only accept two recipes from each person. However, you are welcome to enter recipes for family members that gave you recipes. I put in recipes from my aunts, my grandmother, my mom, my daughter, and a few former members of my family. We still need over 200 recipes to go ahead with the project. That shouldn’t be a problem considering all the great cooks that support tent city. We want recipes that serve anywhere from 2 to 100 people, so any recipe you have should work. The recipe book will go to support the replacement of tents and tarps and to provide needed bus tickets for the residents to get to and from work and interviews. We have extended the deadline to September 15th.

Tent city is now located at Temple B’nai Torah. The address is: 15727 NE. 4th St., Bellevue, WA 98008
To book a meal at Tent City 4 you must first go to the calendar site: http://prem.calendars.net/TCmeals. Once you’ve selected a date e-mail your request to TC4volunteer@templebnaitorah.org to confirm that that date is still available. You will then receive information on what is expected as far as what you need to bring with you and where to go. You will be serving outside this site. Because the site is a Jewish Temple and must keep kosher we are unable to use the kitchen. Please bring your meal completely ready.
Call me at 425-823-1629 if you have any questions.
