We more than tripled our June attendance. In June, we had 41 people and this time we had 134!  We were scrambling for chairs and ran out of agendas.  Almost 40 people arrived at 6:30 to see the video of Charlie Rose interviewing Howard Dean.  People brought their friends and family. Some brought school age children and there were several college and high school students. We had to round up additional chairs as more and more people came through the door. Frank Costanzo, Arizona director of the campaign, spoke and fired up the crowd.  When we began to write the letters to Iowa, people had to share the name lists because we ran out of sheets. I was surprised that two of the people who spent the most time letter writing were a 25 year old woman and a seventeen year old boy.  During the letter writing session we showed a re-play of Dean's June 23 announcement speech.  People lingered to fill out volunteer forms,talk, and speculate about Dean's upcoming visit to Tucson. We're making history as we work together to get our country back.
