We will be moving more monitors tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. from the Oakland
Museum of California to the Creative Arts School. If you would like to help
out, you could meet meet at 10:00 a.m. at the 10th street near Oak. Please
call me at 415-351-1300 if you are able to help. Pizza will be served at
about 2 pm or so. We will be moving the monitors to San Francisco to the
Creative Arts Charter School. If you can only help on the San Francisco
side, that will still be helpful, and you can meet us at about 11:00 or
11:30, depending on when we get back across the bridge. Again, call me at
415-351-1300 to find out our progress.
