Cook out! Bar Outreach! Car Wash!


We hope your having a lovely day. We also wanted to remind you that there are a few, yes more than one, events coming up this week. So without further a due...

Wednesday, September 14th, from 6-9pm OMP! is going to having a good old fashioned BBQ/Cookout. Tom has so graciously opened his home to our group for this summertime event. Tom has given us directions to his house, so please use them appropriately. The address is 905 Rogers St. It's right down the street from UCAN and next door to the West-side Co-Op. There is a gate that opens up into his backyard from the Co-op parking lot that we should use instead of the front door.

On Friday, September 16th, OMP! will be goin out into the city (Downtown Olympia) to do bar outreach. And to make it a little bit different and a whole lot more fun, we have decided to go out in costume. Arr, that's right, pack up your peg-legs and eye-patches, Pirates is the theme. And if pulling together a pirate costume seems like too much, we will stretch the dress code a bit further. If it's "sea worthy", wear it. We will also have some pieces people could borrow for the evening. We want this to be a real fun and hopefully talked about event, so we will be meeting an hour before we leave at John's house. If you would like directions to where John lives, please contact us at 352-2375 or respond to this e-mail. Just a simple explanation on what Bar outreach is: We are going to be visiting the local gay bars and giving out information about OMP! and all of our upcoming activities. So from 8:30-9:30, we will be getting ready at Johns, and from 9:45-11:30ish we will be making the rounds.

Saturday, September 17th OMP! will be having a BIG Gay Carwash. This fun and wet fundraiser taking place in the UCAN parking lot from 11-5. Please dress in clothing that can get wet. OMP will provide the buckets, sponges and soap.
So there you have it, an opportunity to have food, fun and get wet all within one week. Who could ask for anything more? Please contact us with any questions or concerns at 352-2375.
