Things are coming together, I am actually feeling relaxed (at times), it’s like studying for a test and not waiting till the last moment…. see mom I did learn something in school! Today I am dropping off a letter to the Mayor, City Manager, and City Council Members updating them with our project.

We have a big meeting tonight (now weekly) and I have invited a representative of the Alameda Education Foundation (AEF – our non-profit affiliate) and the Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) to come and acknowledge our team, especially the East Bay Nation of Men (Ebnom) who have really stepped up to help produce this event. 3/4 of the team is from Ebnom who live off the island, it will be good for them to be acknowledged by the local community. Web site: – supporting men, teams, families, and communities. I have part of this group for 6 years, great guys!

On Sunday I was chalk drawing for “Circus for the Arts.” Lead by Jeff Raz who recently toured with Cirque du Soleil, Circus for the Arts is in their 4th year of creating an event to raise funds for the Arts for three local elementary school. Students from Jeff’s circus school will be present at our event on June 7. Sweet!
