Hi All,

I just wanted to let you all know how proud I felt working with you all from the Plainfield LWV; you exhibited such a spirit of cooperative, civil concern!  You did such a super job of organizing last night's forum; engaging the other community groups and media and so many of you handling the various tasks to make it flow.

It was too bad that we were forced to cancel but even in that the public was informed because you handled it so well, with grace and respect.  The young people were excited to be there and your non-partisan, cooperative responsibility was a good model for them to observe.  It should make for good class discussion. 

We certainly received "a charge" from the audience.  I can't tell you how many people stopped me, asking to make sure we were planning forums in the fall.  I promised them that the LWV would be there and do it.  You all are really doing a positive community service; keep up the good work.  Thanks.
