Only two weeks left until Independence Day! We're forging ahead with our theme of remembering America's small family farms, connecting that to the effort to reclaim local eating, and connecting that to peace and security. i'll describe our remaining needs as i know and see them below.
in Peace,

Independence Day Parade Entry

Under the official parade theme of "Fourth of July Memories", this year the OPC will urge our community to remember America's small family farms and the fresh, local produce that came/comes from them. We will use the opportunity to promote the "Eat Local One Year" project that's slated for 2009, and we will connect local eating to larger issues of peace and security. immediately, i'm aware of a few needs:

· two people to bear the OPC banner
· one vibrant Earth flag
· 4-8 strong people to keep our "float" (a trailer) moving, since our environmental
values don't include an idling tow vehicle.
· 6-10 people to walk behind the float carrying signs representing the related issues.

i know that more finely-tuned needs will surface in the coming days, but the core need for bodies to staff the key positions is primary in my mind. remember: this is our peace community's most ready-made public opportunity to express our values in a patriotic setting, and our past appearances have been very well received! one or even a handful of people cannot do it alone...it requires a community, just like Peace itself.
if you can help, please contact me.
