Submitted 2/20/18 – Bertha Peña, Clerk, and Alyssa Nelson, YPC

YPCC Action Items for RepCom:

  • We have asked Finance Committee to consider a proposal to bring to RepCom: YPCC requests that the PYM General Fund reimburse $4,000 to the Youth Programs/Vogel Fund for car lease costs in December 2017 that were to have come out of the 2016-2017 YPCC Budget.
  • We wish to sit less long and move more often, even as part of business meetings.


Request to Monthly Meeting Reps and PYM Committee Clerks: Please share this report with your meetings and committees. In particular:

    • Spring Youth Service-Learning Camp, March 26-30, 2018 at Quaker Oaks Farm with the Wukchumni Tribe. YPCC is a co-sponsor, and this is our 5th year of camp!
