HANDS ACROSS THE SAND in TAMPA on 6/26/2010!
We had a great event, we got started right on time with speakers addressing the crowd at 1130AM and then we began to form our line at 1145AM. Congressman Kendrick Meek spoke and then State Representative for District 58, Janet Cruz, me, Anita Stewart for Hillsborough County Soil and Water and Jay Alexander, local activist and member of Veterans for Peace spoke on bringing back the CCC. The mood was a mixed bunch--183 people consisting of old, young, students, kids and even dogs and everyone's mood was jubilant, exuberant and playful. St. Pete Times was on hand along with Channel 8 News, WMNF-FM 88.5 Community Radio and Free Speech News. Everyone was so excited because Hands Across the Sand had gone global, all the participants gave Dave Rauschkolb a hand for coming up with this idea and organizing this action . Everyone had a great day and we were happy to take part in this history making event!
