lobby day feb 12,2007

yesterday was a great day in Olympia.....starting with a very comfortable bus...(with a bathroom....yes!!!!) and we had delicious refreshments and best of all ......the company of some of the greatest people around.....thank you

we talked about the importance of The Healthy Youth Act and the money that could be saved by doing the right thing now ......Dale Brandland was cordial with one foot out the door....packet delivered...... we did not get a meeting with Doug Eriksen.

it was fun just to be there and listen to inspiring words from legislators and activists.

it was great to see Kelli and thank her for her good work !!!! her sponsorship and promotion of HB1855 The Healthy Youth ACT and HB1686 Family Planning Protection Act will go along way for our youth and young families in Washington. personal health and protection programs will be included to screen for cancer and STD's and provide education so important to a healthy life. we talked about the funding gap due to federal cuts in the very successful TAKE CHARGE program and she understands the need to try to get funding to fill in.

thanks everybody for a great day and for all you do!!!!
