We have arranged a host of “Making of Waves – The Rebirth of the Golden Rule” and it will be at Traditions Cafe in downtown Olympia. This is a popular destination for free thinking residents. The cafe generally quits serving food at about 6 pm so they can clean up the cafe and kitchen. The front of the business sells a variety of items from around the world and I think it also closes at 6 pm.

I will immediately start on gathering information for flyers and various local media. I’ll also keep in close contact with Glen Anderson, who is very involved in Washington efforts to eliminate nuclear weapons.

We will also be looking for places for Zoe and another person to be housed for one night to help save expenses.

Traditions has a great screen, a projector (I assume for the DVD film … but do bring your projector) and a good sound system. We need to be out by 9 pm. There may be coffee and snacks available during the presentation.

I will try to find a representative from a local Indian Tribe. There are two tribes within a reasonable driving distance.

If you need to contact me, my home phone number is 360 459-9015 (please leave a message if there is no answer); and email at jimandvelma1981@gmail.com. My cell phone is 360 819-8102 but I don’t keep in on very much.

In peace,
