Transcript RANTINGS FROM THE PRESIDENT Let me begin by bsagging about the Priendswood Fourth of Ju]y celebration. Take one plain truck, 9 radical NOW members, wave one ERA banner and say "liberation now" and WUKEKA instant transformation. The truck is gleaming with red, white and blue streamers. A large banner proclaims 'May Area NOV/ salutes our foremothers". Nine radical "women's libbers" become re-creations of our founding mothers and grand-mothers complete with long white dresses and little white nats waving ERA banners. The reception along the parade route is grand. It appears that noone has ever considered saluting our fore- mothers before and everyone is excited. Maybe its trie reception from the members of the older generation l.h it marched with their mothers in Galveston in 1917 demanding votes for women. Who knows why the reaction from the citi.-.ens of Priendswood was so good? All we knew was that it felt good and I3ay Area NOW was proud to be a part of the community. The? other side of that is that the community was proud of iiay Area NOW. I hope each of you had the opportunity to witness and hear the speech of Geraldine Ferraro, the woman who will be the first female Vice-President of the United States. I find it impossible and infuriating not to be able to describe deeply my emotions at that moment. I made no motion to stop the tears of happiness that flowed while I watched this historic event. My pride was overwhelming. The only thing that can surpass this now is the passage of the IlRA. We must and shall work for the election of this ticket. We will be out in the public registering every female and male who bulieves in equality. Our day is here. Watch out world, here we come! My last comment, a reminder. "The longer you stay around, the greater risk you run of getting a little cynical", (a quote from John Tower when he decided not to run for reelection) Elections for chapter offices come up in hovember. Nominations will begin in September. I am very near burnout as are some of our other members. We need some time away from the responsibilities of office. Please think it over. You have a lot to offer and you can bring new ideas into tin; chapter. Talk to those of us in office. We will be happy to tell you the joys and the pitfalls of the office. Just remember that someone else died and if the chapter is to continue you will have to be the one to carry it on for this year.
