Transcript RANTINGS FROM THE PRESIDENT, This is the last item that those of you will have to endure from me. We have elected new officers for the 1985 year and. I, for one, am terribly happy. We have elected a tremendous group of people that have committed themselves to leading the organization for the next year. As I look back over the year I find lots of things to be proud of and lots of things to cry about, if I had the time. However, all in all, I am glad I have been here. It makes one very aware of our own ability to lead, to follow, and to make mistakes. We began the year with the great movie "How We Got the Vote" and deputized over 40 people to register voters for this year. Nowtthere are some of us who are wondering if registering all those new voters was a good idea! We began in earnest to register voters in February. How do we thank the management of Almeda Mall for being so kind to us? Almeda Mall furnished us with our table, our sign, and a good location. How many of you were as proud as I was of the marquee set up on 1-4 5 by the Mall which stated "Bay Area NOW registers voters in the Mall". I was tremendously proud of us. The Women's History Essay Contest was another great thing that we did again this year and it was even better than before. Those of us who had to sit and make the decision as to which essay was the best fought and discussed for several hours before we were able to agree.

When the dinner was held to award the prizes I, for one, kept looking at all those#young people and their families and saying to myself that the future of our country is not as bleak as I have been thinking. And...we were still registering voters! Along came spring and any thoughts of having any rest from NOW activities went straight out the window. There were of course the primaries, and we had registered approximately 1500 people by that time. The Houston Festival, the March for Peace and Justice, and the League City Fair all hit us at once. This was the 4th year for the League City Fair and we outdid ourselves. The truck decorated in record time looked great. fhe theme of our truck for the Mothers Day event was "Every Mother is a Working Mother". Even those who think they disagree with our organization clapped and waved to that. And even when one of the local rednecks yelled f,hey, you got any men in that truck?*, we were able to set the crowd laughing and applauding for us by being able to answer "Yep, look at these fine young male feminists that we have". Here were our sons with their t-shirts "Men of quality, are not threatened by women for equality..". We made money, cookies, bumper-stickers, friends and even signed up some new members. Most of all we
