Ithaca Hours, the local currency system, has its annual membership meeting tonight, Wed. 29 October.
People and businesses who earn and spend Hours can sign up tonight for 2009 membership and get $40 worth of the local cash as their annual benefit. Membership costs one Ithaca Hour, or $10. It provides a listing in Hours' on-line Directory - the "Yellow Pages" for members.
The normal benefit is $20 in Hours. The special offer is to encourage new and renewing members to meet, and generate business for themselves and the system.
Some participating businesses have donated gift certificate door prizes. ABC Cafe is offering two free desserts; Macro Mama is offering two dinners; McLallen House B & B in Trumansburg is offering a free night; Stellar Directions Astrology is offering a free reading; and more.
The meeting is open to everyone. It is open-ended, so you don't have to stay for it all to participate in as much as you want, if you are pressed for time; but the meeting goes from 6:30- 8 pm, in the Borg-Warner Room at the Public Library.
