Friday Round-Up - #13

A gentleman from my writers' group started an organization with 2 other men called, "Veterans Helping Veterans." Since they are in the start-up phase, they do not have a website yet. Their mission includes a visitation program for hospitalized veterans to encourage and offer prayer. A women's auxiliary will minister to the wives and children of veterans. They also want to provide needy families of veterans with clothing, food, and necessary transportation.

The group is currently seeking non-profit status. Funding will be sought from grants, businesses, individuals, and fund raisers. For veterans and their families in the South Eastern Pennsylvania area, a Pot Luck Picnic will be held on September 28, 2008 from 2:30 P.M. until dusk at the Franconia Community Park. Please use the Allentown Rd. entrance. R.S.V.P.: Roger Sovocool at 215-453-1435 or Mike Reynolds at 215-723-6814. Soft drinks will be provided, as well as live Gospel Music and Bluegrass, sports, and games.

Either of the individuals mentioned above can provide additional details on the group's vision and activities.

Crystal, over at the Chat 'N Chew Cafe, posted a Color Career Counselor test. The basic test is free. http://www.careerpath.com/careertests/colorcareercounselor.aspx I took the test and came out as a Creator. Suggested career paths ranged from Advertising Executive to Author. (Yay!) The secondary career path called me an Organizer. (They should see my desk.) Anyway, it was fun, and I thought I'd pass it along to you.

A friend sent me an announcement about, "Churchmouse Publications," which is open to submissions. Check out their website at: http://www.churchmousepublications.com/ I emailed them and requested their guidelines. They are looking for both new and established artists, authors, creators, and photographers. I'm still researching this opportunity. If any of you have experience with publishing syndicates, please share your knowledge with us.

Have a great weekend!
