Come by my house for coffee, donuts and bagels,
and spend a bit of time writing to your senators and representatives
about the issues that matter most to you. I will have lots of cards
and stamps, and if there are enough of us at the end of the gathering,
we can all go together and mail them -
perhaps a statement worthy of social media?
Just please let me know how many will be coming so I can be prepared.
Hope you can make it!
If there is any event, initiative, project, issue that you want to head up and inform our group on, please do so and let us know.
