There were just a handful of us present, but we managed to knock out a few articles and discuss potential projects for Reed College and/or Wikimedia Cascadia. One new contributor uploaded original photographs of Reed College (specifically Reed Canyon and mushrooms), and Blurpeace and I used the Flickr-to-Commons tool to upload images of Renn Fayre and Seattle Pride (2012). I think it's time we propose a project about Reed! Much thanks to those who participated today. --Another Believer (Talk) 01:35, 22 June 2014 (UTC)
