1. Feb 5 road trip to Fort Worth to protest PP luncheon fundraiser.
This is our most powerful out-of-town protest. The luncheon Gala fundraiser on Tuesday, February 5 is at the Omni Hotel in downtown Fort Worth (1300 Houston Street). The layout is so advantageous for we life defenders. The hotel entrance is the street sidewalk–a public right of way reserved for us. The vanpool departs St. Mary’s church parking lot at 9:30 AM sharp. The game plan is to begin the protest at 11 AM. We will protest into the noon hour before returning. We will have an enjoyable time of fellowship/dining at a Denny’s on the south side of Fort Worth. We have 12 spots available for those who will join this venturesome day. Please reply by email or to my phone 254-644-0407 to reserve your travel spot for the day. We should be back before 4 p.m. You are welcome to get to the hotel on your own and meet us there. Invite your Fort Worth friends. If you live in the Fort Worth/Dallas area, it would be great if you could come out to proclaim that Planned Parenthood is not welcome in Texas.
2. Second Sunday Gathering with 40 Days for Life emphasis.
February 10 may be the most important Second Sunday of 2019. This is the final Second Sunday before 40 days for Life launches on Wednesday, March 6. So come out and hear about the plans for 2019 40 Days for Life, special 40 Days events, to sign up for your hour or hours of prayer at Planned Parenthood for 40 days for life. You can also get materials to recruit your friends and family to volunteer to pray for intentions such as maternal decisions for life and the eventual end to the abortion holocaust in our city. Pro-Life Waco’s Ecumenical Second Sunday luncheon/meeting is on February 10 at the parish hall of St. Mary’s Church in Waco. An Italian luncheon will be served throughout the noon hour—adults $3. Free for children and first-time attendees. Then our action planning meeting in from 1 to 2 p.m. Children are always welcome at Second Sunday.
3. Protest PP Waco social event on Tuesday, Feb 12.
- We invite PP employers and supporter to think again about their support for abortion.
- We show the community traveling HWY 6 that PP is not welcome in Central Texas.
- Those who participate in the abortion holocaust should not be allowed to have their social events in tranquility as if they were a daycare provider.
Finally, because of an accident, I no longer have my Chrysler Town & Country station wagon. However, on the bright side, I have just purchased a Chrysler Pacifica station wagon that is quite nice. The first seven people to volunteer for the Fort Worth protests on February 5 are invited to travel in relative luxury in my new vehicle.
