  • An amendment to the KFAI Bylaws adopted earlier this year by the Fresh Air Board of Directors has been approved and ratified by a vote of volunteers.

    Eighty-nine volunteers (of 245 eligible voters) participated in the approval/ratification process. All 89 votes were in favor of the Bylaws change; there were no “No” votes cast. Unlike an election where a simple majority of votes determines the outcome, changes to the KFAI Bylaws additionally require a quorum — a minimum of 25 percent of all eligible voters — to participate or the proposed change fails, regardless of the outcome of the Yes-No vote. The 89 voters constituted 36 percent of eligible volunteers, and exceeded the quorum necessary to pass.

  • In Entering the Healing Ground, author and soul activist Francis Weller, offers a new vision of grief and sorrow. He reveals the hidden vitality in grief, uncovered when the heart welcomes the sorrows of our life and those of the world. When the deeper rhythms of grief are allowed to emerge, we become aware of the intimate connection we share with all things. We are ripened in times of loss, made more human by the rites of grief. Through story, poetry and insightful reflections.
