Solutions are everywhere.


I attended the wrap up meeting for Relay for Life and we discussed the pros and cons of the event. I was able to turn in our last donation at the meeting. Their are some discussions of possibly moving the event to another location due to the lack of electricity and the in ability to sell food if you have any ideas please let me know so i can forward the to the committee for next year. The baseball ticket fundraiser is still going on if you purchase tickets and say United Purpose II $8.00 of every ticket sale will come to our team. Sorry for posting so late if you want more info let me know.

Hello All:

Just a reminder that there will be a planning meeting tomorrow for the CQE clinic foe Returning Citizens on March 1. The meeting will be held at the Oak Hill Collaborative at 507 Oak Hill Avenue (where we will hold the first clinic), from 6:00 - 7:30pm.

I believe we all would benefit from reviewing the CQE petition, which can be found at http://www.drcqe.com, before the meeting. Also, I am hoping those who have completed their own, or for others, can share their experiences.
