This Week in CAYD

Hey folks,

Here's what's up for this week:

Phone Bank for Tom!
I'm going to head over to the office tomorrow around 7 and stay till around 9. Let me know if you'd like to join. It's really important that we start to step up our efforts for Tom. He really needs us out there talking to voters! Just e-mail margaret.e.thornton@gmail.com if you'd like to come along!

Canvass and BBQ
There will be a canvass kickoff on Saturday at 10 a.m. with shifts going all day. I'll be leaving from downtown around noon and canvass till 4 p.m. when there will be BBQ at the office. If you want to carpool, e-mail margaret.e.thornton@gmail.com. You're welcome to go earlier, of course! The office is at 2250 Old Ivy Rd.

Welcome Summer Cookout
We will hold a welcome summer cookout Wednesday, May 5 at 1021 St. Charles Ave in lieu of our regular meeting. We'll have veggie and hamburgers in addition to a few sides. Just give whatever you can to cover the costs of the cookout. Any leftover funds will ultimately go to Tom. Please RSVP to margaret.e.thornton@gmail.com so we know how much food to get.

Be a Delegate for Tom!
Interested in going to Tom's nominating convention down in Appomatox on June 5 to officially nominate Tom as our candidate? If you live in the county, contact Valerie L'Herrou at vlherrou@gmail.com. If you live in the city, contact Tom Vanderver at char@cvilledems.org.

Common Good Summer Deadline Friday
For those of you still trying to nail down your summer plans consider applying to be a Common Good Summer Fellow. The Common Good Summer Fellowship program allows students to engage in intense grassroots campaign work throughout the 5th District. The program is a lot of work, but really fun! This is seriously a great opportunity for anyone looking to stay involved with the Perriello campaign through the summer. Anyone can apply, because housing will be provided wherever you are assigned! The application and more information are available here: http://perrielloforcongress.com/cgsapplication. Admission is rolling, but the final deadline is April 30th.

Fundraising at the Pavilion
We'll be doing some fundraising at the Pavilion Friday July 2 starting at 5:15. We need four people. Just start thinking about it now.
