Birthday Party

ACORN Personal Writings

Washington     Most of the board had gathered in Washington as guests of the Take Back America Conference because of the opportunity to begin assessing the field of candidates seeking to become President of the United States. Several ACORN leaders were scheduled to be on various panels and workshops, including Maude Hurd on poverty eradication and Vanessa Gueringer on the Katrina fights.

We took a couple of minutes together to crowd into one of the rooms in the basement of the Washington Hilton to sing ACORN a birthday song and cut a wonderful cake that Carolyn Carr, the next senior ACORN staff member, had arranged.

37 and many more of course, but the work goes on!
