Just a few things to correct. First the location of the event is the Don Newton -Taylor Ranch- Community Center, not the Paradise Hills CC.

Also a minor thing, the Westside Coalition goes by either the abbreviation of WSCONA or WSCNA, not WSCA. Thanks.

I made the corrections. I initially provided the info as included in the press release about the event.

Barb, thanks for letting me know that this was incorrect in the press release, I will look into that.

jay: I looked at the press release again and it was my mistake on the WSCA. The release did have the community center as Paradise Hills. Enough errors to go around!

ok thanks, I let the executive committee of the coalition know that the press release -they- put out has errors in it.
