I am hoping to do my best in honor of Natalee. Say your prayers we are successful here in St Louis.
Just a quick update. I contacted the Captain of the St Charles Police Dept and told him our intentions of a peaceful protest against Aruba. I said we had some problems with the members from aruba at our Boston show and they that repeated called the police trying to get us removed. I said we did not want to do anything to harm St Charles nor their tourism convention, we were taregeting one booth and one booth only...Aruba. He said Lisa, if I were allowed, I would be there right beside you.
What a wonderful man!! I am hoping after we can send him thank you notes!! He knew Natalee's story well, he called the Convention Center himself and made the arrangements for us and told me if we need anything at all, including an officer to help with traffic, don't hesitate to call!!! Can you believe it??!! He also said he would pay a visit to the Aruba booth himslef and inform them he was aware of our protest and had our support as long as we stayed within our parameters. He said if they want to call and complain..just let 'em!!! lol
He said our job is to protect everyone Lisa, and that means you!! He made my heart sing!!!

I am trying to get a good group of people together. I have sent e-mails out to the Sororities and Fraternities at St Louis University asking for their help. I am going to do the same with our other local colleges tonight. I am trying also to get together a list of support groups of victims of violent crimes who we could contact. I think it may be therapeutic for them to support the protest. I am going to speak to my Priest tomorrow to ask for his support and see what ideas he may have. My girlfriend is also the President of a civic organization called Fuel. I am going to call on her also. I am also going to send out an e-mail to all my fellow REMAX agents.
I don't know how many supporters we can gather in one week but wanted to let you know I am working hard to gather them!!! Any ideas of other groups who I could call to come out and support our peaceful protest would be greatly appreciated!!!
Also trying to get a bit of media attention. I will keep you all updated.
Thank you!! Hope to make you all proud!! I hope to make Natalee proud especially!!

Great job ladies! I've been in touch with Vicki and more tote bags have been ordered for you to hand out. Thank you for volunteering your time to be a voice for Natalee. American citizens need to know that Aruba is not a safe place to vacation! Travel safe-avoid Aruba!

Sunny and Lisa I am so incrediblly proud of you guys.  Their is no doubt that you will represent us well.  I wish so badly that I could be there to help you.  I just can't cancel my dinner Sunday.  I've got 17 people coming to the house to see my daughter and her new hubby open their wedding presents.

If I can help you organize anything please let me know.

All of you that have worked at the shows have my respect and admiration.

Natalee would be so proud of you.

We stand with the girl.

Received the 3-fold brochures today, they look terrific!!
Sunny and I still busy recruiting!! We are learning alot!! So many well wishers, hard to get people to get of their fannies and ACT!!! But we are slowly gathering our group!! Makes me appreciate all of you Monkeys but especially the ones who attend these shows!!

St Louis University was frustrating!! believe it or not they want to book Beth for a lecture!! I forwarded the info to her...but say peaceful "protest" and you'ld think we said a curse word!!! lol These young kids!! lol They have never had to be advocates for anything!!! Say what you will about Gloria Steinem, at these she VOICES her opinions!! better than sitting on your arses!!

We will have a good group though. The principal of my son's school is sending out an e-mail to all the families tomorrow. Sunny went to visit the principal of her local high school. I just wish we had one more week!!

What do you all think of us trying to get in touch of our local FOX network..isn't that the station Dateline was on?

Any and all suggestions will be appreciated. Tomorrow I am taking the day off work to follow up with phone calls. Friday Sunny and I are going out to the Convention Center to get the layout.
We will keep you updated!! Thanks for your support!!

Wow - you and Sunny are doing a fantastic job!

Dateline is on ABC not Fox but it won't hurt to contact all of the local news stations. Hopefully one of them will stop by and interview you guys.

You guys rock!

Update 

Just got done calling our local news stations. Not sure if they are coming?! How do you know? lol 2 entered the story into their system. Fox went one step further and asked me to e-mail them with all of the details which I did. I guess we will know on Sunday.
