Just a note of thanks to all those who helped organize, donated or came to our fourth annual event on Friday, February 1. Special thanks to Fayze's for donating the delicious bread and Jules' for donating the wonderful coffee. Also, thanks to RoZ for the mix tape, Guy Wolf for his special chili and the year in review (in the historic progressive style!), Cathy for the soup and programs, Xong for the soup and Jessica Thill for staffing the sign in table. Thanks too, to the Concordia Ballroom, for the wonderful friendly facility.

Our goal is to bring in all the area progressives who are out there but not necessarily connected to a group. Next year we will try something different. What? Who knows! If you'd like to be on the planning committee, please email Cathy

In the meantime, there are plenty of issues, campaigns and organizations that can use your help RIGHT NOW! Please get active - write letters to the editor, donate, sign up to hand out literature, do what you can.
