Precinct Walk This Weekend for Measure O

9:30 am
Unitarian Universalist Church
Aguajito, Carmel, CA

Precinct Walk This Weekend & every weekend!
Pick Up Your "Yes on O" Buttons!

Precinct Walk This Weekend (and every day thereafter). Shifts at 9:30 am, 12:30 pm and 1 pm.

Last weekend was a smashing success. 

Trained volunteers can come in 15 minutes before each training session, pick up a packet, and go out immediately (unless you want to attend another training session).
New volunteers will show up at the Unitarian Universalist Church for a quick training session and handout of materials.
Then it's off to locations throughout the Peninsula (with partners unless you don't need/want a partner).
Three (3) hours later, back to the Church to turn in your marked walking lists, meet and share your experiences (this is very critical and a lot of fun).
