The Future of Tsunami Books, Part 6
(please feel free to share this):
An initial "Public Meeting" about the Future of Tsunami was held on Wednesday, December 28 here at the Bookstore. Approx. 35 people, ages 4 to 70+, participated in statement of facts, q & a, and discussion.
Basically, the Tsunami Books Lease is up come June 30, 2017. It is possible to acquire a new lease, minimum 5 years, at a considerable increase in rent. How to guarantee the rent is the question. The answer will likely need to appear in January if Tsunami is to continue at its present location.
The meeting lasted just under 2 hours. No one left. Many folks considered it a very good first meeting. A general email group named "The Future of Tsunami" was formed (all emails kept private here at the bookstore, group messaging through bcc), as well as two specific smaller groups: "The Future One" includes folks who have both interest and the financial capability to help plan and secure Tsunami's future at 2585 Willamette; "The Future Two" includes folks who are interested in a more general brainstorming toward a long-term, permanent home for Tsunami, and possibly other compatible for-profit and non-profit businesses.
Please email me (Scott) at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to take part in the general email (update) group, or either of the active sub-groups. I'll send you a facts sheet, an email form, and a statement entitled "Securing the Future of Tsunami." These you are welcome to share around.
It should be noted that a meeting for "The Future One" is scheduled to occur next week. Please email me if you might care to attend.
