Individuals Who Will Hold a "Home Vigil"

NOTE TO ALL PERSONS/ORGANIZATIONS SIGNING UP:

Your involvement will receive official inclusion into Equal Parents' Week and will be publicized, including inclusion in and distribution of the national press release. Please be sure that your activity is implemented as described so visibility and successful media coverage will be achieved.

By signing up, you are notifying us that you will be holding a candlelight vigil in your home.  Your candlelight vigil will take place on Thursday, September 29, 2005, start at 7:30 pm, and last for at least 15 minutes.  You must also tie a purple ribbon where it can be seen outside your home.  It is strongly recommended that you hang one on your front door (like a Christmas wreath) for consistency in holding the vigils.  Purple ribbons can also be tied elsewhere outside if there you have other places available.

TO SIGN UP PLEASE DO THE FOLLOWING:

Please send an email to: PattiDiroff@att.net

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU INCLUDE ALL THE INFORMATION REQUESTED BELOW IN YOUR EMAIL.

PLEASE BE SURE TO INCLUDE the words, "Home Vigil" in the subject line of your email, and state in your email message that YOU ARE SIGNING UP TO HOLD A HOME VIGIL.

5. Identify the approximate number of persons you estimate will be participating in the vigil and generally who they are (i.e., immediate family, invitees such as other family, friends, neighbors, etc. You don't need to list their names.) If you live alone and will hold the vigil by yourself, specify this (this is fine). If other people should be contacted, please list their names and contact information.
