CALL TO MUSTER!!
TO ALL WASHINGTON STATE MINUTEMEN:
The Washington State Detachment of Minuteman Civil Defense Corps will conduct its first muster and border operation of 2008 over the weekend of January 26th and 27th.
Our initial muster will be held at 9:00 A.M. on Saturday, January 26th at Camp Standing Bear (*) in Ferndale, WA.
We will be manning various posts between Blaine and Sumas for both daytime and night operations. Volunteers are also requested for a night operation on Friday, January 25th from 8:00 P.M. to Midnight. Please call Claude "Bear" LeBas at (360) 366-4047 to volunteer for the 25th.
For all attendees, there will be a home-cooked meal served Saturday evening after daytime operations at Camp Standing Bear. This alone, since it is prepared by Rochelle, Bear's sister, is worth the trip up to spend a day or two on the border!
The weather is unpredictable in January, so bring warm clothing and be prepared for precipitation !
On Sunday, January 27th, we will also conduct a rally alongside I-5 in Peace Arch Park for incarcerated Border Patrol Agents Jose Ramos and Ignacio Compean. This will take place from 12:00 Noon until 3:00 P.M.
2008 will be a watershed year for the unresolved issues of illegal immigration and border security! Let us start the year off with a well-attended enthusiastic border vigil and rally over this weekend!
Please bring flags and rally signs ( if possible ).
As always, there is room at Camp Standing Bear(*) for motorhomes, trailers, tents, etc. or there are inexpensive motels in nearby Blaine or Ferndale.
Bear and I wish each and every one a Happy New Year, and look forward to seeing you in January!!
