It's getting time to start gearing up for the Heat Fund again. I was trying to get a Talk Like a Pirate Day benefit together in late September. Since The Marina's rebuilt and the theme is pirates, I thought "Good fit." Except Daryl had already gotten them to donate a dinner a week for 30 weeks as a raffle to benefit the Heat Fund, and said raffle will be drawn in early September (Tickets are 50 bucks; let me know if you want in). Cancel the hitting up The Marina plans.
Also, nobody has volunteered to help at all. Which creates many unnecessary obstacles. No venue + No help= No Benefit.
So maybe not pirates this year. Maybe pirates next September, and this December do something simple and sweet, like a Yule Log Vigil on Solstice Night. Or in February when the money always runs out, a Candlemas/Brigid's Vigil with a bonfire and drumming. Get the Pagan and hippie communities involved in a new charity. Now where to do that?.......
I don't know if we're gonna do the monthly recipe on the radio again this year. I gotta shoot Daryl a WTFIGO. Cuz I don't know WFTIGO. Loose organization is good when you're talking charity work, but ya gotta know what each other's doing. And it has to be planned. Not a rigid schedule, just a rough idea. Planning is everything when you're a gimp.
Where in town could we do a bonfire benefit without incurring the wrath of the Whiners?
