REMINDER: Big E Demo. - W. Springfield, 9/ 17 & 9/24 !!!

Hi Again,
Just a reminder that there will be a Big E demo. on both 9/17 and 9/24 @ 3:00pm...I decided to cancel the 12:00 one, since many folks are working or at school at that hour. Please spread this around...the animals need us to speak for them!

Hello Fellow AR Folks,
Well, unfortunately it's that time again...the Big E, which runs from 9/17 to 10/3. Hopefully you can help us hand out literature and hold up signs.
Meeting Place: Gate 4
Meeting Times: 3:00
Contact Info: [address removed], (413)[masked]
* Directions are at Park on sidestreets across near Big E (don't support Big E by paying for parking) may cost a few dollars, but is less than Big E parking. 
*Please let me know if you plan on attending!
*Signs and literature will be provided, but you're welcome to bring your own.
*If heavy rain is predicted, demo. will be rescheduled.
The Eastern States Exposition (or Big E, for "Exploitation") contains a circus, petting zoo, ox-pulls, horse-pulls, livestock shows, animal exhibits (e.g., bear trailer, world's fattest pig, world's smallest horse, etc.), horse shows, 4-H shows, etc.
* Please spread the word around to anyone who may be interested!!!
You can also help the animals by writing a letter to the editor at local papers ([address removed][address removed], etc.) and sponsors. Big Y - - is the main sponsor; Coca-Cola - - is sponsoring the circus; Master Spas- - is sponsoring the petting zoo.
(Interesting sidenote about Coca-Cola...I found this on their site ( when searching for contact info.:
"Does The Coca-Cola Company sponsor rodeos?
Coca-Cola cares about the welfare of animals and supports their proper treatment. That is why the Company and our U.S. bottling partners will not sponsor events or attractions that feature animals unless the event organizers have policies and procedures in place to support the humane treatment of animals and provide ready access to quality veterinary care to protect the animals' health and safety." Hmmm...I think they need to reconsider sponsoring the Big E circus, and stand by what they say).
Hope to see you there...the animals need you!!!
