See below. I need to hear from you this week if you are able to volunteer to help -- sit at a table for a couple of hours. Is anyone out there reading this? Does anyone want to volunteer? Please respond and let me know this week because I am ready to cancel if I don't get some help. - Jacque 468-2101 jacque@... or jacquebetz@...Katie - I'll let you know by Friday, February 2 if anyone actually volunteers to help. Honestly, I doubt anyone steps up from my list of 56 women -- I am so very tired of begging women to give a couple hours of their time once in a while and no one stepping up. We have a lot of pretenders -- they eat the "right" whole foods, wear the "cool" clothes and think they are "activists" because they maybe attend the yearly Solstice Concert. It is disheartening. I am the national coordinator of the Peace Ribbon Project and work on a national level with that (the Ribbon is currently in Hawaii). But, locally, women say they support CodePINK but I still haven't figured out just how they support it -- they never show up for anything. I'll let you know if anyone volunteers by Friday Feb 2.Jacque----- Original Message -----From: Katie CrozierTo: Jacqueline BetzCc: Melissa KoernerSent: Monday, January 29, 2007 11:09 AMSubject: Re: V-Day Help Wanted!
Sorry I dropped the ball on the Iquana thing, I was out of town for work from Jan 9 - 19 =( .
Our concert lineup has changed slightly... we have Hamhock and Slide, Flash Silvermoon, Marce and redboy. Show will begin at 6:30 on Feb 18 at The Side Bar. Tickets are $10 at the door and include a coupon for $2.00 off a ticket to see The Vagina Monologues!
The Vagina Monologues are Feb 23, 24, 25 at the Facilties of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. Box office opens at 7, doors at 7:30, show starts at 8. Tickets are $10 at the door.
CodePINK represenatives that will be "working" each evening need not pay admission.
I've copied Melissa Koerner on this e-mail, she is handling our PR and Marketing. Could you send her a logo and some verbage to include on the promo material?
