Meeting 5-3-17

Self reliance is knowing that you have the mechanical aptitude to approach a problem.  Come be your own problem solver with basic home repairs and tool maintenance. Do it when the waters are calm, so you can be sure of yourself when the storm comes.

Calling all conversationalists Feb 1

Over the years we have provided a wide variety of opportunities to learn self-reliance skills. This month we are holding an open-forum discussion of a different kind. A magnitudes of change has occurred in our chief of state. There MAY be significant changes to the lifestyle that the American people have both asked for and dread. This meeting WILL NOT be a bitch session about the people chosen or not chosen to run our country.

In the nature of our organization, this meeting will be pure, non-biased discussion of how to be SELF-RELIANT at a time when you might not be able to rely on the traditional governmental infrastructure.

What MIGHT change, and how can we as individuals stay strong in our finances, health care, education, security, etc. ? Bring your worries and ideas, leave your political hate at home. See you at 6:30 on February 1, 2017 at 23014 70th Ave. E, Graham, WA.

New Year…New Meetings

We hope you have all enjoyed your holidays! Starting a new year is always exciting…well maybe not Y2K exciting, but hopeful none-the-same.

We  will begin our 2017 presentations with a new presenter. He is a retired Special Forces soldier, with 20 years of medical experience in a variety of situations.

Medical Care Considerations – Everyday and Emergencies
This presentation is designed to educate and inspire us how to be prepared for commonplace situations as well as possible emergencies. This includes:
–“medicine cabinet” items to have on hand at home
–which types of first aid kits should be prepared for various situations
–educational resources will be shared
–and then a practical hands-on lesson for one particular type of emergency.
We hope you can join us at the  Graham Fire Station HQ
