Help!

I am looking for 6 volunteers to help out locally for 2 hours - from noon to 2:00 this Saturday the 25th.

No sign-holding, petition-signing, talking, walking, or writing involved. Just two hours of the easiest yet potentially effective volunteering you could do this year to stop expanded gambling in Massachusetts.

If you'd be willing to help out, drop me a line.

And thanks!

Great ideas from CasinoFreeMass!
It all makes good sense and many thanks for the introduction.

We're with you on this and willing to work to make it succeed.

It was great to hear someone explain how flawed the "inevitability" of slots and predatory gambling was.

I hope our legislators will have serious discussions about this before they rubber stamp this misguided source of reveue.

Dear "Anons" 8:24 and 11:23 - It was great to see you! Thanks so much for your participation and efforts. They mean so much!

At our late lunch afterwards someone remarked that it's not like volunteering for an event, but more like getting together as friends.

Here's to old friends, new friends and friends to be.

Every time I participate in one of these events I learn new things. Yesterday was a very interesting and valuable lesson in effective activism.

On another note, I think it's unfortunate that some will make the effort to feed the ego of a vain, abrasive, pro-casino ex-selectman by appearing on his obscure and little-listened-to radio show, which he has brazenly used in the past to intimidate his anti-casino critics, instead of taking the time to come out and raise the awareness of actual decision makers about an important issue with the potential to victimize many.
