Here's a paragraph I thought everyone would enjoy. It's from a travel article about Athens (url below) posted to Rick Steves' FB page: “Yes but it is still just an Athenian neighborhood at heart. There are families and old people living here too. Not just young people and anarchists. It is a real community. You see this park on the left. The city wanted to make a parking lot. The people seized it and made this park. The brought in the trees. They made the paths. And they made the little area where they can hang out and drink coffee so there is always someone here to sound the alarm in case the city tries to take it back. There is another one in Kypseli, where I live.” From

Lynn Brevig requests a person to relieve me at the Art table at Planet Home at 1:00 p.m. I would like to take over "manning" the WA. Toxics Coalition table when the rep from WTC has to leave.
An Art table person would just need to be helpful o the people who might be making imaginative things with a variety of re-used materials.
You don't have to be an Artist. Just assist the Creative process of others.
Anyone Available for a while?

Phone Lynn ASAP. so I can plan for it.

I still need someone to help with the office part. It's not a big deal, really. I will have all the info typed up in FAQ format for you and signs or explanatory paragraphs for everything. It's mostly just being there to chat with people about sustainability.

Wish I could, since it sounds really cool, but I'll be at sea for work.

I would LOVE to attend this event! What a great way to organize a festival! Sorry I'm out of town.

Since my aunt is celebrating her 90th birthday that day in Olympia, I will not be attending the festival. I need to ask for someone to help with the Office part on that day, so if there's someone out there who would like to help, please let me know.
