2. VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: WHITE HOUSE EGG ROLL LINE HOLDERS APRIL 14
We are working with Family Pride Coalition to create an LGBT Family Visibility Event at the 2006 White House Easter Egg Roll and we need YOUR help to make this happen! Reconciling congregation, Foundry UMC, will host the post roll celebration!
The White House Easter Egg Roll is held every year on the White House lawn. It’s open to the public and always a big media event -- this year, on April 17th, LGBT families are going to be a visible part of this great American tradition! This is a wonderfuul opportunity for our fellow citizens across the country to see LGBT families as they really are. But we need lots of help to make this happen – we need people to stand in line for tickets on the Friday night before the Egg Roll, April 14th, people to help out at events surrounding the Egg Roll, people to put up out-of-town families in their homes -- to find out more about this event and how you can be a part of it, go to http://www.familypride.org/eggroll.
We are proud to be partnering with Family Pride and dozens of other LGBT organizations to help organize LGBT families to attend this year’s White House Egg Roll to show President Bush and the whole world our wonderful and beautiful families. But we need your help to make this happen. We have over 250 registered to attend, but we need line standers to help us secure tickets for the over 400 children who want to roll an egg down the White House Lawn. Please come join other volunteers on Friday, April 14th at 8:00 pm to stand in line for tickets. Refreshments will be provided and Family Pride will be handing out glow sticks. You can meet other line standers at 8:00 pm at the corner of 15th Street NW and Pennsylvania Avenue. From there you will proceed over to the White House Ellipse Visitor’s Pavilion to wait in line for tickets.
If you can help out please go to www.familypride.org/eggroll and click on the link at the bottom that says "volunteer".
The hundreds of kids hoping to roll eggs down the lawn on Monday, April 17th thank you in advance for your help.
For questions or emergencies during the weekend, please call 202.276.4311.
