Transcript gave out the literature to educate the public. The best part was having a gentleman from Galveston that wanted to make sure that his resolution to the Democratic State Convention was worded properly to make sure that the ERA stayed in as a priority of the party. And even with all this going on there was the ongoing most important function» Working in the campaigns. How many of you got just like I did? I was afraid to answer the phone, because I knew it would be Pat Kuhlmann asking one more time "Say, we've got a mailing we really need to get out for Lloyd Doggett. Could you give us a couple of hours?" or "I sure need someone to help do phone-banking for Marilyn Mieszkuc tonight. Do you think you could come?11 The problem is, who can say no to Pat Kuhlmann? A lot of us put in time and energy to helping our candidates, but Pat was an exception. I don't know where Pat got the energy. She put in hours and hours, many times by her self, to help elect candidates that we needed. We are all indebted to Pat for what she did. It was Pat who kept the name of Bay Area NOW in the minds of the candidates. We will never be able to thank her enough. Along came the summer. Still no let-up. There was the State Democratic Convention. What a sight to look out and see NOW members from across the state ae delegates. Texas NOW set up the first child-care facilities that the state has ever had. Bay Area NOW had eight of our members who were delegates. Our voices were heard. And, once more, we were registering voters. For the first time in Bay Area NOW1s history weiwere invited to participate in the Friendswood 4th of July celebration. We decorated the truck with"Bay Area NOW honors our foremothers". What a great reception we received in conservative Friendswood. People came up to the booth to find out what NOW was really a- bout. ,fGoahf I didn't know that NOW cared about equal pay. Let me ask you about something that is going on at work". "We have been trying to get something done about a shelter for abused women here in Friendswood. Can you all help?" I forgot to mention that also, one reason, our reception was so good was the fact that each person that rode in the parade was dressed all in white, long dresses with little white hats and banners draped across naming one. of the suffragettes. We were a great sight. And, of course, we were still registering voters in Houston, Texas City, Webster, League City, UH/CLC, nursing homes, post offices, grocery stores and Almeda Mall. The fundraiser put on by "the Friends of Marilyn Mieszkuc" will stay etched on my memory for a long time. I'm not sure if we will ever get the onion smell out- of the house. And, "No, Hedy, the Kid's cannot spend the night with Auntie Phyllis". The decorations at the park were great, the music great, the people great, and the money raised was an asset to'a marvelous candidate.
