People, we are very close to looking foolish. We must either very, very quickly put together a credible 4th of July event at Bronson Park - or notify the city that we have changed out minds.
In that event we should arrange to have our members attend events that have been planned in other cities like Grand Rapids or Lansing to show support for our Mission. Greg and Cari, and Tony Dugal are the only ones who have volunteered to help put together anything for our event and I am afraid that we no longer are going to have enough time to arrange for posters and flyers, music, food vendors, interested speakers, invitations to other groups like NRA, Fair Tax, Right to Life, politicians.etc.
We need to be fair and give people some notice so they can make palns. So if we can't pull something together in about a week we really should just call it off or we risk looking pathetic.
I will lead the group but I need 3-4 more very serious people who can help with things like music, food vendors, posters and banners, distributing flyers, calling and arranging appropriate speakers, talking to media, etc., etc.
I think that we must start by this Saturday and have things really moving within a few days - or call everything off. Thanks. Doug.
