VDay in Angola

It has been two months now that I began the project of organizing and directing The Vagina Monologues in my town. There have been countless hours of meetings, auditions, rehearsals, planning, and stepping out on the edge.

Tickets are now on sale and posters announcing this upcoming event are scattered all over the county. Wherever I go I am stopped, once, twice, no three times with questions about the event. Over a hundred tickets have been sold within the first 24 hours! I am expecting a sell out...groups of women are planning pot lucks, dinner parties around the event. I heard that the Red Hat Society will be there along with a group of teen age well as University students and the Methodist.

We have just begun. I feel honored and proud that my town in stepping out on the edge.

Come join us, Saturday evening, February 25th. Tickets can be reserved at the CAVA office or purchased at Rachael's Coffee House. Donations are $20 and all proceeds go to our local CAVA chapter and the national organization of VDay!
