Last week was a bit slow with the inclement weather, plus we were closed on Monday.
Yesterday, we hit the ground running as three large pallets of those metal yard sign doohickeys (yes, that's a technical term *grin*) landed. We scrambled to unload them in the freezing drizzle, and with everyone pitching in, managed to get 'em all stacked in a corner of the office. Now we just need the "Jim Neal for Senate" part that goes IN the metal signs... :)
And I got to meet Mr. Neal for the first time, shake his hand, and tell him how wonderful it is that he's running for office. Of course I wouldn't be here, day in and day out, if I didn't believe in him and his candidacy, but it was a real pleasure to meet him in person.
And now, for the invitation, which I've been expressly asked to forward along to the folks at BlueNC: We're having an Open House next Monday, January 28th!
Please join Jim Neal and supporters for the official grand opening of our campaign headquarters!
The party is next Monday, January 28 from 6pm to 8pm at 200 Meredith Drive in Durham. Exit 278 off I-40, head south on 55 toward Apex, past the intersection with Hwy 54. Turn right at the Subway on Meredith Drive – the office is down the drive on the right side (second building on right with a green awning).
[Angry Grrl adds: if you know RTP/Durham, this is the "Greasy Corners" intersection of Hwy. 54/Hwy. 55, we're right by the Food Lion shopping center.]
This event is being held 100 days from the May primary election – come meet Jim, enjoy the company of supporters, and find out more about how you can volunteer and make a difference with this important campaign!
As for the request, the office could still use a few items:
1. a wireless network card for a desktop machine, a Pentium III
2. printer or two - laser or deskjet
3. a freestanding coat rack - ideally, something like this, so we don't have to bang holes in the walls.
If you have any of the above and would like to donate them, please drop me a line at angrygrrlsrants at gmail dot com. Thanks! And I hope to see a lot of you next Monday at the open house. :)
