Progressive State of the Union date set

Please put FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1ST on your calendars RIGHT NOW!

That is the night of the Fourth Annual Coulee Progressives' State of the Union at the Concordia Ballroom, located at 1129 La Crosse Street, in La Crosse. We will host a Community Information & Action Fair from 5 - 10 pm.

That evening, we will focus on GROWING OUR PROGRESSIVE COMMUNITY. It will be a chance to network, learn about local progressive activities, campaigns, and candidates, share ideas, and be inspired. We all know that 2008 is an important year for national politics... it's also an important year for our local, growing progressive community. Please plan to join us!

Donations will be accepted on a sliding scale of $2 to $20 to help cover costs, and to raise funds for the La Crosse Peace & Justice Coalition''s bio-diesel bus and other progrressive causes in the community. We will also be collecting non-perishable food items for WAFER food pantry.

If you would like to display information or merchandise, we'd love to have your participation! This is the main focus of this year's event! We are suggesting $10 for a half-table where you could display information or merchandise. Please contact Cathy Van Maren at to reserve your space today.

We expect this event to draw a crowd... a simple meal will be provided(including vegan & vegetarian options). You are welcome to bring a shared dessert to the event, if you'd like. (mmm)

Thanks, and see you there!
