SCOUTING FOR ALL RALLY THIS SUNDAY (8/22/04)
5th Annual Scouting For All Rally-Sunday, August 22 11:00 AM
Please tell 10 friends and bring 3 to the rally with you. The public needs to know how important this issue is to all folks.
Join us! To download the flier visit http://img9.exs.cx/my.php?loc=img9ℑ=flyer2.jpg. It is important that we get as many Anytowners & Minitowners to this event. We only need you to give up two hours of your weekend. When I told the organizers of this rally we were organizing this was there response: "We are looking for a huge youth presence because we want to negate one of the great myths surrounding this issue perpetuated by the Boy Scouts--that it's only a bunch of adults who are effected by this and are the ones pushing their "agenda" on the scouts and that it's the children who suffer. We need students to make it out to the rally because their presence sends a message to the media and the public at large that youth DO in fact care deeply about this issue because they're the ones effected most by the exclusionary policies. . .and that's no lie. I WILL be addressing that very topic in my speech on Sunday" The following topics will be covered:
- Celebrating the groundbreaking victory of the ACLU over the Boy Scouts illegal sweetheart land lease of prime San Diego city property.
- Protesting the discriminatory policies of the Boy Scouts of America against gay and atheist youth and adults.
- Promoting public awareness of local and national issues.
- Validating ALL children for the beautiful individuals that they are.
- Signing petitions to end discrimination in the Boy Scouts of America.
- Providing information to taxpayers about what they can do to end discrimination in the Boy Scouts.
It will be in front of Boy Scout Headquarters, 1207 Upas Street (West of Park Blvd., North of the Zoo, on the northeast end of Balboa Park. We hope to see you there.

UPDATE: YOUR FAVORITE PUPPIES IN TRAINING-WILLIE WILL CRAWFORD RAISE HER 3RD MIRACLE
Willie's first puppy, Heather, is a Hearing Dog and lives with a hearing impaired woman in Ontario, CA. Heather alerts her to the sound of the doorbell, the dryer and oven timers, and to someone calling her name. Her second puppy, Blanca, has just completed her 6th month of Advanced Training in Oceanside. She was not matched with a recipient this semester, and will be evaluated in the next few weeks to determine if she will be held over for another semester. If not, she will be "released" from the program and live with some lucky family as a pet. We just received the latest word on Blanca. As most of you know, she rotated through Aug. Team Training, but was not matched. They will be holding her over for another semester (yea!) and will have her evaluated for the Hearing program. Now we Introduce to you Marjorie! She is an 8-week old lab puppy, and Willie Crawford's newest Canine Companions for Independence assistance puppy-in-training. She will live with and be socialized by the Crawfords for the next year and half, before entering her Advanced Training to learn the skills she will need to perform as a companion for someone with a disability.
