League of Women Voters on the U.S. Congress Candidate’s Forum Aug. 5

Subject: Fw: LWV/LFNA…Dist 8 Debate: next pre-event planning meeting

LFNA Members:
I wanted to forward the e-mail below from one of our partners from the League of Women Voters on the U.S. Congress Candidate’s Forum.  As you can see, there are many opportunities for volunteers at the 5 August event.  All of the preliminary arrangements are done.  We just need volunteer workers for the event.  Given that we are co-sponsors with equal billing with the LWV, it would be nice if we could cover a significant portion of this volunteer need.  Our neighborhood will be gaining an enhanced profile with this televised event, so lets step up to the plate and help make it a success.

Gordon Spears
Vice President, LFNA
