Community Rights Lane County, Freedom from Aerial Herbicides Alliance, and Our Community, Our Rights are collecting signatures during the upcoming Country Fair weekend.  We're working hard to qualify our ban on the aerial spraying of herbicides in Lane County, as well as our new initiative to protect our right to local community self-government.  This new initiative says that the state shouldn't preempt our right to draft and pass local laws that protect our health, safety, and welfare, as the state has done by preventing local laws on GMO agriculture and harmful forestry practices like aerial spraying.

We’re hoping to have volunteers at the following three locations, including two places in Eugene where people going to the Country Fair will queue up for buses.  So you don’t need to be going to the actual Fair or have tickets or anything.  All you need is to be willing to give up a couple of hours to make a difference on our signature collection.

We need volunteers willing to work in any of three locations:
* Volunteers to work the Eugene Bus Stop
* Volunteers to work the bus stop at Valley River Center
* We might also be able to use people collecting signatures at the Fair when people arrive or in some other way.

We are looking for people for the following shifts:

Friday July 8th, 10am-12pm
Friday July 8th, 12pm-2pm
Friday July 8th, 2pm-4pm
Saturday July 9th, 10am-12pm
Saturday July 9th, 12pm-2pm
Saturday July 9th, 2pm-4pm
Sunday July 10th, 10am-12pm
Sunday July 10th, 12pm-2pm
Sunday July 10th, 2pm-4pm

You can sign yourself up directly for a shift using the following spreadsheet   We can use as many people as possible, so please sign up even if there is already someone for a shift that works for you.
or you can call or email Katja at mars...@msn.com / 541-942-9808 to volunteer or just get more information.

Thanks

Rob
