day of week your society meetings
Some months ago I asked this forum as to your meeting days. Some had said they did it on weekends. We have a lot of senior citizens and they don't like driving at night. Here in Washington State in the rainforest that can be difficult in the winter. we were thinking on Saturdays in the winter and then Tuesday in the Spring. In the winter it is dark at 4pm the summer it doesn't get dark till after 9pm.
We did try a couple of Saturdays put I did not see any increase in attendance in fact is was a decrease.
The people that were not there on Saturdays were the people who do the work at the club. The people who move the chairs and tables around and help set up and tear down. These are also the people who have children and grandchildren want to be with them on the weekend. Plus house hold chores are done on the weekends
We took a vote at the last meeting and the majority won to keep it on a Tuesday night.
One person who keeps on insisting on Saturday's is a recent arrival from California she tells me that all the garden clubs she was in in California meet on a Saturday.
We meet on a Tuesday night in the basement of a church.
What day do you meet and where is your meeting held??????
