**CT: FoodDRIVE & Meet- 11/7/04**
[SIZE=6]SUNDAY NOVEMBER 7th- Mark your schedules, this is gonna be BIG!!![/SIZE]

With the Holiday Season coming up on us fast, is putting on it's First Annual Food Drive. This is an organized event which consists of a meeting location, an approximately 90-Mile Caravan Drive through the very scenic (Fall Foilage) NorthEast portion of Connecticut, and a final meet destination. At the meet destination we will be holding a car meet. The drive should take approximately 1hr to 2 hrs to complete (Depending on Traffic Etc). We ask that everyone involved bring a Non-Perishable Food Item(s) (ex. Can Goods, Crackers, etc), which will be handed over to a local soup kitchen at the end of the meet. This is for a Great Cause and gives us a reason to drive through some sweet Scenic Routes. The drive is awesome, with some long straights, to some of the best windy roads in Connecticut. Please Respond to this if you plan on attending. I will be keeping track of who signs up, so I can get an accurate count.

This might sound COMPLICATED to some, but it really isnt, get a map and go over the route. I will have printed out directions and maps for everyone attending this drive. IF you want, just show up and follow us, it is a pretty easy route. It is a fun and very scenic drive. Bring the family if you wish also. I might also have another meet destination for us to check out afterwards, but they haven't gotten back to me yet, so for now, the final meet destination is the Crystal Mall.

There is plenty of time to plan for this and attend. It is for a great cause and hope that alot of you will join us. If you know any of us from, you know we go out of our way to make it fun! We will also have some free sticker giveaways etc. Let's show our support and give to the Needy.


If anyone has any questions etc, please email me: [email][/email]
