Fundraiser preparations

In October, preperations for the fundraiser were made, including last minute
discussions with the Wikimedia Foundation about the outline of the
cooperation on this front.
 General Assemblee

At October 9, a General Assemblee was held for the election of two new board
members. Hay Kranen left the board and Siebrand Mazeland and Maarten

discussion where community input was gathered on how to fundraise and get a
better insight in which messages might work best in the Dutch situation.

A first meeting with volunteers was organized in the library of Vlissingen

project. This in the light of the cooperation with MuZEEum, through Wiki
