Annual ORE Timebank Member Meeting
On Thursday evening, Sept 21, we held our annual ORE Timebank Meeting Meeting. Over 30 ORE timebank members and some not yet members shared some of their interesting offers, requests, and exchanges with each other. I heard from some participants that some new service exchanges were planned and the seeds for other exchanges have been planted. We shared stories, learned to know each other better, and discussed ORE timebanking issues. We enjoyed tasty food that was provided by members attending the event.
Many thanks to Janet, Joan and Laurie for their work to organize the event.

The Onion River Exchange (ORE) Timebank is a place for members to exchange skills, talents, and services using time instead of money. ORE does not provide services, but it is a network of individuals, businesses, and organizations that share services with each other.
Members of the ORE Timebank:
- Give and receive services to/from each other
- Learn new skills
- Meet new people
- Save money
- Feel connected and Involved in the community
- Increase community health and well-being as well as support sustainability
- Further develop a complimentary currency, time credits
Members post offers and requests and log time earned or spent exchanging services with each other on our online timebanking system. The time “banked” can be used for future exchanges with any member. Central to timebanking is the agreement that one hour of your time is equal to one hour of my time. The ORE timebank is based upon the five core values of timebanking.
