I can't attend, but.......

Who ever can attend and bring another warm body, please attend this rally at
the Center's new office at 54870 Pine Crest Ave, Fern Valley Ca. (This is the
village adjacent to Idyllwild) I believe puuting this address with the city
of Fern Valley or Idyllwild on mapquest.com will yeild the same directions.
The rally starts at 11am, however those folks that want there literature to
be included in the plastic bag handouts need to arrive at 9am to help stuff
the bags.
Also, some of you may want to make a hand held poster or sign to help voice
your concern(s).
