Car-Free Commercial Drive Needs You

[please forward to anyone you think might be into this!]

Hello all fans of Fun for Free.

This message is going out to my lists of people who have made the 2005 and 2006 Commercial Drive Festivals happen...that's 300+ of you!
And you are just the tip of the iceberg...this phenomenon exists because all of you threw down, plus hundreds more residents and visitors and businesses contributed in so many ways, and thousands upon thousands have come out to support Car-Free Drive and co-create the urban paradise we know is possible.
So now we are gearing up for the summer of 2007, and in the works are up to THREE Car-Free Commercial Drive Festivals! The first one is definitely booked for Fathers Day, Sunday June 17...and other tentative dates are Sun. July 22 and Sun. Aug. 19. It's going to be a HOT summer as we cool the planet and edge our way toward Car-Free Vancouver.
Of course we need your help, in whatever way makes you happiest -- as blockade marshalls, setup-and-teardown people, posterers, community organizers, and every other little chore that makes it all happen. Feel free to send me a note now if you want to participate in one or more days, and we'll get down to the details of that in a few weeks.
ALSO, we are looking for a few people to fill key organizing roles. Our organizing crew is a stellar bunch of dedicated street-party animals, and this is a super way to get hooked into the community, expand your skills, and have a crazy amount of fun. The roles that especially need filling, especially in the days leading up to the events, are:

-assist with organizing STREET VENDORS
-assist with Commercial Drive BUSINESS LIAISON
-assist or coordinate COMMUNITY OUTREACH
-assist with VOLUNTEER SUPPORT
-ILLUSTRATION or GRAPHICS
-WEBSITE maintainance (this is really urgent, even if only a quick fix!) and possible redesign
-assist or coordinate ROVING PERFORMER POD
-assist or coordinate KIDZONE
-assist or coordinate DRIVE FEST MERCH POD (t-shirts etc)

Of course if you have some special skill or resource you want to offer up, don't hesitate to put it forward.

Looking forward to a sizzling car-free summer, with gratitude to all our neighbours,

Carmen and the Drive Fest Crew
