Ric Chollar here, Associate Director of Mason's University Life Office of LGBTQ Resources. I'm hoping to reach GMU Lambda alumni, LGBTQ/Ally faculty and staff, Pride Alliance Exec Committee, Pride Alliance members, Safe Zone team, and all interested others to let you all know that we have reserved a table, for the fifth year, at Capital (DC) Pride Festival, Sunday, June 14th, for George Mason. This table will be a spot for LGBTQ/Ally Mason to show ourselves off!!! for prospective and potential students, current Mason students, Mason alumni, and all others. The festival goes from 11 am to 6 pm, on Pennsylvania Ave, NW, between 4th and 7th Streets (near the Capital Building). The nearest Metro stop is Gallery Place/Chinatown on the Red/Yellow/Green lines.
Check out the Capital Pride Website for more details http://www.capitalpride.org/
I'm writing this to ask for four kinds of help/support for this event:
1) Are there any one or two people who could show up early, between 9:30 and 10:30 (I'll give you more details) to help set up the table? 2) Are there six or more people who would commit to sitting at the table for shifts of 1-2 hours? It's LOTS of fun!!!!
3) Could you promise to stop by the table some time that afternoon to say hi??
4) Could you spread the word that Mason will have a table, so that everyone else also knows to stop by and say hello??
Please check in with me about any of the above, with an email message to rchollar@..., or by calling 703-993-2702. Could I hear back from you by end of day this Friday (June 5)? I'll then send out a schedule of who's sitting at the table when, by mid-week next week. Hope to see many of you the weekend of June 12-14 at Capital Pride!!!
In Peace and Pride,
