This is MY journey with MS! I give you my thoughts, feelings, hopes, and prayers. My wish that one day this disease will come to an end. That one day there will be a cure. For now, I hold on to possibility. I HOPE this will help and inspire not only myself but others.

Hastings Music

After a bit of a rocky beginning to the weekend, things started to look up real soon. We were scheduled to sell the CD's at the Pasco Wal-mart on Saturday and Sunday, but there was some scheduling conflicts. Someone accidentally booked another organization at the same time (oh well, mistakes happen). They do have us down for next weekend though, so that is good. :) Fortunately the Richland Safeway saved the day....or should I say days. They let us set up at the store both Saturday and Sunday! :)

On the way to the Richland Safeway I got this idea to check with the local music stores to see if I could get them to buy a few CD's to promote it in their stores. I called information for the phone number to the Richland Hastings store and it was unlisted, so I took a bunch of CD's to the store, talked to the manager and sure enough.....he bought 5, with the agreement that when they sell them they will buy some more! Yay! I then found out that there is another Hastings in Kennewick. I called and spoke to the manager there and they are buying 9 of them. As of today we have collected $1875 for the fundraiser.

My dad also had a great idea and we are hoping that it will not only be a way to raise a lot of money for the MSAA, but that it will be a great way to educate more people. This upcoming Saturday is Veteran's Day. The City of West Richland is having a parade and chili feed. Apparently it is a big deal in this area. My dad (being a veteran himself) got a hold of the City and they are letting us set up a table at the park (where the parade starts and where they are holding the chili feed). I believe the parade starts at 9:30 but we will be setting up at 9am. It will only last for a few hours, but then we can head out to the Wal-mart. It should prove to be a great weekend!

Chili does sound good...especially on a cold day. :)

Chris,
I just want to do whatever I can to help out. I figure if I can take my experience to do some good than all the better. :)
