Letters from the week of Oct. 5
Pet people say thanks!
Thank you again for sponsoring the ARFP Fundraiser at Next Door Tavern last week. We had a wonderful time and raised a lot of money for the animals affected by Hurricane Katrina!
I wanted to let you know that our team of volunteers is back from Slidell, Louisiana. Jennifer Hart, our president, would be more than happy to talk to you about the trip and the two dogs she brought back if you would like. Thanks again for all of your support!
Candidates forum set for Mahi’s
To the editor;
Please note that we have so far received 15 affirmative responses and deadline not yet close (10/6) to our annual Candidates’ Forum. Mostly from Greensboro which is too bad as we have lots of members who live in Summerfield and some in High Point, etc.
Our event is Monday, Oct. 10, at 5:30 p.m. at Mahi’s Restaurant on Lawndale. Dinner is $15 per person for everyone, members, guests, candidates, etc. We meet at 5:30 for networking then dinner and then each candidate gets 3 minutes to present. This is a level playing field and seems to continue to be popular across the state (not this election though). The entire community is welcome but needs to make reservations by 10/6 by calling 254-5889 and sending in check payable to WOMAN, PO Box 10465, Greensboro NC 27404.
PBPS Challenge a success
Congratulations to Mighty Lester of Raleigh, the winners of the PBPS 19th Annual Blues Challenge, held last Saturday and Sunday at the Lion’s Lair in High Point. Second place went to Patrick Fitzsimons of Asheville, and third place was grabbed by the Gary Redd Band of High Point. Mighty Lester will represent the PBPS in the International Blues Challenge (IBC) in Memphis, coming up in February of 2006. They’ll also be on stage next year for the Carolina Blues Festival and the Bull Durham Blues Festival. Thanks to everyone who came out and made a bid on the Silent Auction. If you have not yet claimed your item you bid on, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll get you set up. Thanks to everyone for helping out; it was a great event! Special thanks to our own Jeff Parrish for his outstanding job as event coordinator!

I am working with students across the Southeast towards developing clean energy solutions on campus. In Tennessee, we have two universities in the final stages of presenting their initiatives to their respective administrations, and an additional six colleges with initiatives on the rise. Meanwhile we have two colleges that recently passed their student led initiatives this September. It does not stop in Tennessee.
In North Carolina, three universities are purchasing renewable energy, with others on the way. There are active campaigns in South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Florida and Alabama.
This regional momentum is part of a national effort, Energy Action. Find more information at EnergyAction.net.

I believe in this story to the fullest I just cant believe that there are people out there that don’t and that won’t at least believe it to help someone in a time of need. I really wish that I could do something to help the people that has these problems
