WELCOMING OUR TROOPS HOME

March 21, 1P.M. '  Some have already helped. I am sending this to a great many people, so if it doesn't sound good to you, just delete it & keep thinking positive.  If Ministers & Rabbis can jump in, ask your house of faith if they can help. If not, keep love rollin'

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 2ND. I SIGNED ON THE DOTTED LINE TO RENT THE ROSE BOWL IN PASADENA, CALIFORNIA
1001 Rose Bowl Dr. Pasadena, CA. 90013         STEPPING OUT IN FAITH.
NOW I AM SEEKING 60 PEOPLE TO CONSIDER DONATING $100.
If you would like to help, please read below
.


Nothing should be made out to me. ANY CHECK SHOULD BE MADE OUR TO ROSE BOWL STADIUM and the memo at the bottom left should say
3/21/10- Marines/Drowty  (Write very small) & mail it to me. Address at bottom of e-mail. 

I am in for $300. & I already have 13 joining in. So that makes $1,600.  So far so good. We are on our way. This figures out to be about 28 cents for every one of the 22,000 Marines & their family members and their supporters we are expecting to attend.  This is an emotional program.


 EVERYTHING IS TOTALLY FREE / Parking too.


The Rose Bowl is giving us a fantastic deal & someone had to get the ball rolling by renting the place.  My credit card is sealing the deal.


  Coming from 8th St & "I" in Washington D.C.


 Our United States Marines Color Guard, their incredible Drum & Bugle Corps and their Silent Drill Platoon. (over 20 million hits/You tube) Titled "The Battle Color Detachment."
Questions? call Don 530-321-3833


We are working on music
, movie, sports stars & also honoring top educators in California too. You will also see one of the greatest high school bands in America, from Granada Hills High School.  We hope to have Angelique Lucia sing again this year (San Francisco Conservatory of Music star) as well as the Bel Air Presbyterian Church Choir from this wonderful church that has done so much to support our Marines & all who serve. Bring Kleenex, bottled water (not glass) healthy snacks, sun screen & your most patriotic heart. They will reduce the rental fee if we pick up our trash. (Police all areas) In this case, it is totally not anyone arguing about the battle fields, it is about love, caring and total support of our young people who serve their country in most difficult ways. "All gave some, Some gave all." Any support should be sent to:
