The Hildreth Dynasty

Ramon Hildreth ended his successful tenure as Chair of Subud Greater Seattle today by handing over the reins to the new Dewan, elected (tested) in inimitable Subud fashion to his daughter Honora Hildreth. She’ll be joined by Vice-Chair Jim O’Halloran, Member-at-Large Lorraine Tedrow and Dewan holdovers Hadiyah Carlyle Secretary) and Sherwin O’Bar, Treasurer. Ramon will test to become Local Helper to replace Jim.

The process was capably guided by Regional Helper Oswald Norton and reports from the Subud Youth gathering in Indonesia were provided by two participants and sisters of the new Chair, Sophy and Leandra Hildreth.

January 29, 2017

It’s that time of the every-other-year again. The day on which we test candidates for Chair, Vice-Chair, Treasurer, Secretary and At-Large members of the local Dewan. If you have guidance that you might be a candidate for any of these positions, you may want to pretest, but our meeting is set for Sunday, January 29, 2017, after latihan. Presumably there will be food but you might be interested in providing something to share with your brothers and sisters. May the force be with you.

A hearty thank you goes out to our current Dewan:

Subud House

Chair – Ramon Hildreth
Vice-Chair – Abadeen Gunatilaka
Treasurer – Sherwin O’Bar
Secretary – Hadiyah Carlyle
Helper Rep – Hadijah O’Bar
Helper Rep – Jim O’Halloran
At-Large/Eastside Rep – Hadidjah Gregory

Dewan Meeting Minutes (Dec 4, 2016)

The local Dewan met on December 4, 2016, before Latihan, at 9:30 and the minutes are (as usual) posted as a page and linked here.

Here is an excerpt:

  • Subud Dewan Committee:
  • Ramon will ask SPNW for a loan of up to $5000. We have a major expense coming up with the sewer and tree roots which has been a long standing issue. Unanimously passed.
  • $1200 of SGS funds will be donated to SPNW. In spite of SGS projecting a $4,000or more shortfall; SGS will send the usual contribution and it was unanimously passed.
  • Repairs:  Marston reported that Bob Oates will do the sewer repairs at $9500 plus tax.  This was the lowest and best bid.  They will put a liner in because of the root issues.  We can pay in three payments over a ninety day period.
  • We also approved up to $400 plus tax to replace the bed upstairs as there have been complaints. (After the meeting, Martson found another way by putting boards in so we don’t have to use the amount designated…

Respectfully submitted by Hadiyah Carlyle, Sec’y
