Hey NC Wikipedians!
Last night's meeting was a fun one -- we got to connect remotely to a
biergarden hangout with members of the NYC chapter.

Hey NC Wikipedia friends!
We're ten days into the photo campaign and it seems like it's going well!
There are 200 photos uploaded, from all over the state, and there are a lot
of great ones! You can see them all here:
There's a local photography group meeting tonight and I think they're going
to mention the campaign at their meeting. I also submitted PSAs to four

the historic sites directors for the eastern and western parts of the
state. But honestly, I think the banner is doing a lot of work, so thanks
again to Richard for making that happen!
I'm inclined to schedule our next meeting as a wrap-up, sometime after June
22 when the campaign ends, unless anyone thinks we should meet before then.
OR unless anyone is feeling motivated to work on a grant for a Wikimania
meet-up... but I just realized those grant applications

Friday. If anyone wants to discuss, email is probably the best way to go...
