There are still slots available for anyone who wishes to speak against the proposed bill. The Million Moms will be out in force, especially after the shooting down at the White House.

There are many ways you can help. 1-Call the council members and voice your opposition to this proposed bill. 2-Write the Council and voice your opposition. 3-Call the County Executive and let him know where you stand on this bill. 4-Write the local newspapers like the Gazette and the Washington Times. (do not waste your time with the Washington Post) 5-Attend the hearing. Do NOT let the Million Moms take over the hearing room. If we do not even try, we are sure to lose.

The hearing starts at 7:30, but be there at 6:30 for a demonstration outside and to get a seat. The address is 100 Maryland Avenue in Rockville. It is adjacent to route 28 just north of the intersection of Viers Mill Road & Rockville Pike. There is an exit off I-270 for route 28 (go east on 28).

Please RSVP if you are attending the outreach event. If we have enough people we will cover additional post offices. I don't have a list yet of all the post offices that will be open late. If you know a post office in your area that will be open late you can cover it instead of going to Silver Spring. You can also cover the post office during the day. Feel free to make a sign for the outreach. There are a few rules we need to follow: Stay on public property (sidewalk, etc) Don't block the flow of people going in/out of the post office. Pass the fliers to them as they LEAVE the post office so there won't be a clutter of our literature in the post office. If you are going to cover your own post office, you may pick up fliers from me at our LDDS on April 11th. (If you need directions to the LDDS let me know) Give me a call if you can't pick them up at that time. Contact: Glenn Howard, 301-585-1793.

May 5-6 (Saturday-Sunday): Towsontown Spring Festival. We have a DOUBLE space this year. Yep... 28+ running feet of solid Libertarian "stuff". In the event of hard rain predictions, the date will be May 12 and 13. Festival runs on Saturday, from 10 am - 6 pm and on Sunday from 1 - 6 pm. On Saturday, if you can help set up, please arrive by 7 am. No vehicles will be allowed to enter the festival area after 8 am on Saturday, or after 11 am on Sunday. Pennsylvania and Chesapeake Avenues will maintain their one-way status for entry and exit. No parking is allowed on Baltimore Ave. or Courtland Ave. on the days of the festival. They suggest you use one of the 5 parking garages, which offer all-day parking for $3. If you can help man this massive space, please do! Also please bring whatever Libertarian literature you have, and a jug of water to refill the doggie bowl. Our spaces are #344 and #346. I'm fairly certain that this is the somewhat shady area that we had last year. They are located on the North side of Chesapeake Avenue, appx. 1 block up (west) from York Road. The curbs are marked with space numbers. Interesting update for this year: a "Challenge a Libertarian" idea has been proposed. As people walk by, they see a "Challenge a Libertarian" sign advertising that our libertarian expert can, in 30 seconds, give a concise and workable solution to any social/political problem anyone can name. We can also have Libertarian panelists who can decide how our "expert" did. It has lots of possibilities, so we're going to give it a try. So all you experts out there, please show up!! It could be a lot of fun. If you can help at all with the festival, please lemme know. If I've left anything out, just ask. Contact: Nancy Millionie.

Assist at a table where people can drop by during the inevitable lulls of the races. More info at www.paxvelo.com/2001LTC/2001LTC.asp. Volunteers are needed, not only for outreach, but also to serve as race marshals or perform other tasks to assist the race officials. We'll have a max of 5 people behind the booth at any one time, and others who can help by volunteering will be greatly appreciated. Contact: Charley Hardman .

Three delegates who represent portions of Harford County, Democrats Diane DeCarlo, Nancy Hubers and Dan Riley, co-sponsored the "The Darrell Putman Compassionate Use Act" in the 2001 legislative session. Delegate Murphy will be joined by Delegate Riley and other supporters at the Bel Air rally. Feel free to attend and bring signs that express support for medical marijuana. For example, signs could say "Let Doctors Decide" or "Stop Arresting Patients." Of course, be sure that the words on the signs are spelled correctly.

July 4 (Wednesday): Dundalk parade. It starts from Logan Village Shopping Center which is right on Dundalk Avenue. We are supposed to be there at 7:30 am. Take 695 toward Essex, and then take the Merrit Blvd. exit (I think it's exit 39), and go about 2 1/2 miles. You'll go through several lights (I think it's about 6). One is at German Hill Road. Then there are 1 or 2 among the shopping centers that line both sides of Merritt Blvd. The next one is at Holabird/Wise Avenue (a major intersection). I think there are 2 more after that. Then you'll go uphill toward railroad tracks. Right there, bear right and you'll see the Fire Department on your right (7-11 is on the left) and you'll probably see police cars blocking the road or at least directing traffic. This is Sollers Point Road. Turn left. Now you are going to go about 1/2 mile. Watch roads on the right, pass Mornington Rd. and then turn right onto Belclare Rd. Now you're going to go about another 1/2 mile. Follow Belclare until it dead ends at Dundalk Avenue at Logan Village Shopping Center. (You'll be approaching it from the back). We are usually toward the end of the parade, so head toward the left (south) end of the shopping center. It is true that we probably won't start marching until about 8:30 or so, but we need to decorate our float. We will need folks to carry flags and banners. Remember it will be HOT. Bring a cold insulated drink pack that we can carry in our float, for your use. Also, packing a wet face cloth in with your cold drinks is a good idea. Remember too to wear your LP tee shirts, or red white and blue. Contact: Nancy Millionie.

July 4 (Wednesday): 32nd Annual Rally, March, and Concert to End Marijuana Prohibition - Washington, DC. Sponsored by the Fourth of July Hemp Coalition. Info: www.fourthofjuly.org.

Two years ago we had a great time at the Hemp Fest on the Mall in D.C. In addition to several LP speakers, we set up a booth where the largest crowd of people stopped by in one day that I have ever seen in an LP outreach! Our speakers got them interested, we did the follow-up. Let's do it again this year! As last time, we have been offered help from Virginia & National LP. There are many residents from the Maryland area that come. I have talked to Ron Crickenburger from National LP who has volunteered to bring literature and T-shirts promoting our drug policy which he suggest we give to those who sign up for LP membership. I will be coordinating our booth and have offered the Montgomery County tent and tables & chairs.

Please help our in this event! We would like to have at least eight people present at all times from noon to 8:00 pm - the hours of the event, plus we will need volunteers to help set up & take down the tent and signs, etc., and to cover the LP booth which will be in a grassy field (pun intended) just north of the Lincoln Memorial near the intersection of 23rd Street & Constitutional Avenue NW. I particularly need volunteers during the earlier hours before the speakers finish in Lafayette Park. We plan to set up starting at 10am. The nearest Metro station (to the booth) is Foggy Bottom and is a six block walk south on 23rd Street to the Fest. However if you are going to Lafayette Park first Farragut West is better.In the evening you can stay and see one of the nation's largest firework display. Contact: Glenn Howard, 301-585-1793.
