The National Congress would not have been possible without the work of scores of volunteers who served tirelessly to welcome 192 Subud members from all 7 US regions and as far away as the UK!
Among those we would like to thank are:
Dale Carlen – Child Care
Dennis Oliver – Share Board: Roommates & Rides
Elizabeth Trudell – Congress News
Halimah Collingwood – Entertainment
Halima Taylor and Isman Kanafsky – Gallery & Gift Shop
Maria Wallington – Congress Secretary
Morris McClellan – Sound Engineer
Philip Lindstrom – Congress Chair
Sonya Shooshan – Silent auction
Terry Koch – all round Volunteer & Photographer
Portland members – especially Hermine Berenger and Nirel Jackson Wardwell for local errands and general Subud house schlepping!
And the many members who pitched in one way or another!
In addition, we had another successful silent auction at the congress, raising $1083 for Subud USA. Thanks to Sonya Shooshan, Miriam Rimkeit, Lucian and Hannah Parshall and others for organizing, setup, and tear down. Thanks to our many donors, including Lucian and Hannah Parshall, Susannah Lints, Miriam Rimkeit, Lianne Card, Fredrick Branchflower, Elisa Sunflower, Josephina Orchard, Sonya Shooshan, the mystery donor of the box of Subud books, and others we may have forgotten. Last but not least, thanks to all our bidders, who supported Subud USA and went home with a variety of eclectic items!
