If you’d like to take some time away from the seasonal buzz, we have the PA Library reserved on December 12th at 6:30pm. There’s no agenda or any films to play, just a time to chat and relax. Bring some food or refreshments to share if you wish!
Meanwhile, for those wanting to know more about what Transition means, here’s a 5 minute video about what’s happening in Totnes, the UK community where the transition movement started.
Closer to home, here’s what’s happening on Whidby Island.
Of course these examples are different because every Transition organization is designed by its own citizens for their community. . . and that’s the process all of us in the midst of right now.
Best wishes for the holiday season, however you choose to celebrate.

We’ve gotten some great responses to our request for input! Many thanks.
It’s our hope for the 14th to see at least one working group form, dedicated to a food-related project. We’ll give a brief (20 minute or so) talk about what working groups are and how they fit into Transition… what follows is up to you. Bring your ideas!
Because this is all about food, please bring some snacks to share, as you are able. Don’t worry if you can’t, though!
— In brief —
When: 14 November, 6:30pm
Where: Port Angeles Library

The event this coming Wednesday will be different from the last few at the Library.
There are lots of people and organizations in Port Angeles with projects which naturally compliment the Transition process. Obviously Transition Port Angeles shouldn’t run around reinventing the wheel!
So, this Wednesday we’d like to have a round-robin discussion, and start building a list of people and organizations to contact. We expect this will take about forty minutes or so, and by the end of it everyone will have a much deeper understanding of the many connections we share in the broader community. It’s our hope to walk away with the beginning of an inventory for Transition PA’s future.
After the round-robin will be breakout groups for topic focus time. There’s lots to talk about!
When: Wednesday, 12 September, 7:00 pm
Where: Port Angeles Library’s Carver Room
What: Group round-robin for community inventorying, followed by small group focus time
Cheers, and see you there!
