You have no doubt heard about the HKonJ march this coming Saturday. I am happy to report weather forecasts are calling for a beautiful day. I am also happy to report that a morning of sewing, cutting and pasting has whipped our 9-foot tall puppetmaster (courtesy of Paperhand Puppet Intervention) into shape and he will be leading the Democracy NC contingent at the march. This is, of course, a total homage to James, who rightfully holds the banner when it comes to all Puppermaster communiques.
I would love it if some of you joined us.
Join Democracy North Carolina on February 12th for the 5th HKonJ. This annual gathering brings thousands of North Carolinians together for a march on the General Assembly Legislative Building in Raleigh -- and we are going to have a lot of fun marching this year. We have very special plans involving signs, drums, a 9-foot tall mystery guest and much more. We also want to include you! Volunteer to play a role in our street theater event (you can be a corrupt politician and wear a puppethead, hand out flyers, drum, hold a banner or sign, chant or just march along). This is a family-friendly gathering and a great way to teach your children that democracy is worth standing up for. So feel free to bring them along. Little ones will likely appreciate a wagon, stroller or large dog to ride.
We'll gather just past 9 AM on Saturday, February 12th at the corner of Wilmington and South Streets, next to Shaw University in Raleigh. There is supposed to be a parking lot right there you can use. Join us!
If you can volunteer to take part in the street theater portion of the day, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It would be really fun to meet some of you so I hope you can make it.
