Have Fun Staffing Table at Circus McGurkis 2008

The Buddhist Peace Fellowship would like you to help staff our table and mingel and enjoy yourself at: Circus McGurkis
This Year’s Theme: Vote Peacefully

37 Years of Creating Peace in our Community

Saturday, October 18 from 9 am to 4 pm Lake Vista Park
Corner of 16th Street South and 62nd Avenue South
St. Petersburg, Florida

A peace education fair in the Quaker Tradition, celebrating freedom, justice and creativity

Details (from a bpf-tampabay google group email):

Peter Crockett forwarded the C.M. press release & notes 'we're pretty close cousins to the Quakers, especially in seeking peace within and without.' C.M. is quite an event -- definitely of interest to most bpf folks.

bpf-tb is now registered for a non-profit display table (no sales, but we can solicit donations)


As of October 5, we have 10 volunteers for table sitting -- more are welcome (committed in advance or just stopping by for a while).

We can definitely use more donations of Buddhist-related books, magazines, audio/video etc. They will be offered for free at C.M. with 'donations welcome' -- this has been a major source of bpf-tb income in past years. Contact Rick Ferriss [masked] / [masked]) for more info, or if you want to find a place to drop off some books before the event.

    Thanks John -- me too!

    Ron arrived early and found a primo spot, and Doris, Frank, John,
    Peter, Rick, Ron, Sam, and Tom helped with handing out literature and
    talking with folks. Good weather, good location, good people! We
    distributed about 90 copies of the BPF-TampaBay brochure and local
    Buddhist groups list, plus misc handouts and books. We collected $48
    in donations. A few photos are above.

    peace, Rick

    I enjoyed staffing the table with Rick and meeting Tom. It would have been nice to have met some other members of BPF, but I will look forward to this at future MeetUps. I had an excellant time at the Table and enjoyed the whole day at Circus McGurkis. Everyone I met that day had a "GREAT TIME"
