The Story in Photos - Appleton Kick Off

We'll blog more about the Appleton Kick Off first thing tomorrow. But we wanted to share some photos from the event before we go to sleep.

Campaign manager Mike Tate introduced Fair Wisconsin and got things started.

We had terrific speakers. Pastor Steven Blackstock, from Memorial Presbyterian Church, explained why his Christian values lead him to stand against the ban. Connie Raether has been involved with the Fox Valley Action Network for over a year. She initially got plugged into our effort at our first-ever speakers training in Green Bay back in November 2004. And Bob Pedersen, the President and CEO of Goodwill Industries North Central Wisconsin, explained why he believes the ban will hurt regional economic development efforts.

We had a terrific crowd with many long-time supporters and lots of new faces.

Lots of people showed up.

The three on the right have been doing great work in Oshkosh for years.

Brewed Awakenings, a coffee house on W. College Avenue in Appleton, kindly donated coffee for the evening. I promised I'd tell everyone on our blog to give them your business.

Back at the hotel, Lindsey, Shira, and I wrapping up some blog entries. Shira is one of our new staffers who will be organizing Fair Wisconsin Action Networks, mostly in western Wisconsin. She'll start her first blogging tomorrow.

Good night, everyone.
