This way we can hopefully***** choose a day that works for everyone! Also remember to tell your friends! Even if they don't carry if they come it will be a tremendous asset!

    I picked every one of them because I'm pretty open and flexible. I hope this comes to fruition.

    It will, after we've picked a date than we can assign different people different jobs, like the people who know some person in the news media can contact them, a person that knows someone at hannaford can get the food donated... things of that nature!

    It appears that we only have 3 of us? We need more than that.

    I think that the topic is just fairly new still... I'm hoping that more people will respond. I know that there are many more people that are interested in this than just the three of us. Give it time, tell your friends. Try to give me a solid number on how many friends you are bringing *that will actually really come*...

    I'll need to check dates. I might have something else going on on the 25th. I'd like to come; I may even have some friends that would be interested in attending... I'll post back when I know for sure.

    I really want this to go smoothly! I'm hoping that we can get shirts as well as food. Hamburgers and hot dogs hopefully. Maybe some fliers made up. But I don't have the funds to get the shirts or the food. Perhaps we can get the food donated if someone knows a manager or something at a grocery store? I'm trying very hard on this, but nobody has stepped up to help me. ****IF YOU HAVE ANY WAY OF HELPING PLEASE HOLLER AT ME***** WE NEED FOOD AS WELL AS MAYBE A TABLE OR 2. AS WELL AS EMBROIDERED SHIRTS!!!!!

    Oh, I was thinking... Where is the setting going to be? Are we meeting at the Back Cove Park? Somewhere along Baxter Blvd? At Hannaford?

    There is a date set, how about a time?

    I'll try to set aside some time to make a small flyer that people can pass around if I can get some information to put on it.

    I have a friend that's a business owner in food service. I'm sure I can get plenty of free food. I'll speak with him tomorrow about it and if you guys could let me know what we need I'll put the bug in his ear. I also have a grill but no mean of transport, it's not going in my car.

    If you get some flyers made I will gladly pass them out as well. If you'd like we can meet sometime in the near future or you can pdf it or something.

    Lots of considerations to make, things get missed :-)

    For my understanding, Back Cove and Back Bay are the same place right? The little pond that Baxter Blvd circles?

    If that's the case, a good place to meet would be the Back Cove Park on the south end of the cove by Hannaford. There is a parking lot on Preble St.

    I should also point out that the path passes within 500 feet of Chevrus high school. The school grounds go all the way to the path however. This might cause a complication concerning the school zone laws. Might wanna look into it.

    We should be in the clear, Back Bay/Baxter Blvd/Back Cove whatever you call it i believe is Public Property since it is maintained by City of Portland. Cheverus High School is a Private Institution notpart of the PortlandPublic School system. The 500 foot part of the law is only for discharging a firearm, and i don't plan on doing that unless someones life is in danger.

    Thanks for clearing that up. I couldn't remember exactly and had trouble finding the statute.

    I will be bookmarking that.
