Legends will have a table at this event. Hope to see many of you there.
Because of voter suppression, it is essential to register voters early and inform them of future elections. Do you know of additional events Supermarket Legends should attend? Please email email@example.com. A new flyer is printed, and kits are available with all the materials needed.
Promoting the Census
In addition to registering voters and getting out the vote, Supermarket Legends must help promote the importance of completing the census form. As you may know, population determines government funding and the number of representatives assigned to each state.
Dale Nook will attend a Wisconsin Voices meeting about strategies for “getting out the count” and give a report at the October 13 general meeting.
Do you have favorite places where you like to distribute voter information? Please email Sue Schneidler, firstname.lastname@example.org, with any ideas for the north side and Dale Nook, email@example.com, for the south side. They are creating lists for volunteers to use in deciding what places will work for them.
Cost of Printing
The cost to print SL’s first 2020 flyer was $323.00. To date we have raised $620.00 on our Go Fund Me Page. Thank you! Any donation for future printing and supplies is appreciated and adds up. If you prefer to write a check, please make it out to Supermarket Legends and mail it to our banker Carol Brill, 3916 North Oakland #324, Shorewood, WI 53211.

Your Time is Money
More important than cash is your time. Please be prepared to commit two hours a week in 2020 to be out in the Milwaukee community. Also check ongoing volunteer opportunities in our last newsletter. Together we can make a huge difference in voter turnout!
A reminder that our general meeting is scheduled for October 13, 2:00 pm, Capitol Street Library, 3969 N. 74th St.
