Dear Leader,

We have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to clean up the PCB contamination in the Fox River and Green Bay.

Please help! We need your participation in two events, to show LARGE numbers of people supporting a good cleanup:

MONDAY, OCTOBER 29

at the Holiday Inn Select, 150 Nicolet Road

(U.S. 41 & College Avenue) in Appleton

5:30 pm --- River/Bay Rescue Rally, outside the front entrance

6:30 pm --- PUBLIC HEARING, inside

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30

at the Radisson Convention Center, 2040 Airport Road (Hwy. 172, by the Casino, across from Austin Straubel Airport) in

Green Bay

5:30 pm --- River/Bay Rescue Rally, outside the front entrance

6:30 pm --- PUBLIC HEARING, inside

--------------------------------------

PLEASE bring a sign to carry at the rally (saying "Clean the Bay," "Protect Kid's Health," "It's About Time," etc.) with BIG letters. Try to picture how your sign would come across in a newspaper photo.

PLEASE write down a brief statement you can read aloud as testimony at the hearing. If you can speak on behalf of your organization, this is even better. If you're too shy to speak before an audience, the DNR and EPA are also taking private statements in a nearby room.

Your attendance through the whole hearing is important, to show strong support. We need at least 200 people at each hearing, to make an impression.

If you can only come to one hearing, please come to APPLETON, where public support is weaker. We especially need you at the 5:30 p.m. rally before the hearing.

Please bring friends and family, too! Spread the word among your organization! This is the final push for cleanup.
