It’s Tommy time! Community Liaison ThatTommyBoii reporting for newsletter duty!

Joe’s live again this weekday morning, so I’ll be bringing you the news again! We’re getting to it right away!

Mercy Road 4 Success!

The weekend has passed and so has the charity event Mercy Road 4 that was benefitting  Child’s Play! Joe was joined by fellow players KrissyInColor, Kay Purcell, Tyranthesaurus, UnderdogAG, and DM Saucefire.

You can check these VODs out to see Joe and the others in action! Do mind the split videos, what’s a charity stream without a few technical difficulties?

The event raised $5,550.00 and is still currently open for donations here, though on stream redemptions have concluded.

2023 Q2 quarterly meeting

As a reminder to folks we have our quarterly meeting coming up! That’s gonna be on Saturday, April 15th, at 1pm US Central time. If you have any agenda item requests please submit them in the Joe Hills Meta > #next-quarter-new-business-requests channel. Channel suggestions can go in #feedback-more-channels, and emoji suggestions can go in #feedback-emoji.

I recommend checking out the feedback channels and letting us know how we’re doing! We strongly encourage it as it helps us know how the community is feeling and what changes we can make to help folks.

Upcoming Streams

Joe and I would again like to apologize for the lack of a stream schedule, things are a little chaotic in Tennessee, and Joe doesn’t want to give a timeline he’s not certain he can commit to. I look forward to when we can confidently give that to y’all!

So long for now…

Thanks for reading the newsletter! I’m excited for our upcoming quarterly meeting, and I hope y’all have a beautiful week!
