Transcript CONNECTIONS' =11 THANK YOU, AUSTIN ALGPC STARTS MEMBERSHIP/VOTER REGISTRATION DRIVE Austin Lesbian Gay Political Caucus and those involved with the Austin Convention Fund Project thank the many people and businesses who helped with or contributed to the Fund. Some $2,100 has been raised, so far. We expect that the Labor Day weekend fundraiser at the Hollywood will put us very close to meeting all expenses. About half the amount raised so far was through substantial personal contributions. We are extremely grateful to these people. We are also deeply indebted to the ownership and management of the Austin Country, the New Apartment, One-Ten, the Private Cellar, Tex's Colorado Street Bar, the Hollywood, and the Red River Crossing. These businesses helped make the fundraisers a success. ■ Thank you, Austin, for your support. Carr Strong, ALGPC Co-chair Publish your poem in CONNECTIONS by Carr Strong The Austin Lesbian Gay Political Caucus is starting a combined membership and voter-registration drive on Labor Day weekend. It will run for five weekends, through October 4, the November election's deadline for voter- registration. ALGPC members will have tables set up at each of the bars in Austin from 10 p.m. - 1 a.m. every Friday and Saturday night during the drive. Tables will also be set up during special events at the bars, particularly on Thursday nights. Anyone living in Austin who is not registered to vote here, can register. It is a fast, painless way to change your registration address or to register for the first time. ALGPC has set a goal of adding 100 new members during the drive. Membership is $12.00 a year, with special rates for low-income or sponsoring memberships.'
