re: handbill/flyer schedule for week of May 7th

Dear Ms. (name withheld),

Thank you for taking the time this morning (May 4) to speak with me over the phone. I'm sorry we were not able to re-connect concerning the rescheduled shift that was moved to this a.m. If you have any additional handbill/flyer shifts ($10/hr) please email me with date/time/location.

As per our conversation, the Free Library of Philadelphia has approved distribution of said items at the Main Branch (20th/Vine) plus other branch locations. It is suggested a stack definitely be dropped off at the Rittenhouse Square branch location.

The Main Branch will place two flyers (showing both front/back) on the bulletin board located on the ground floor next to the elevators. They will also place a stack next to the information desk just inside the main entrance.

If you would like, I could drop off the handbills at the library locations plus other optional locations (coffee houses, record stores, and bars/taverns) in Center City and Old City where registered voters congregate.

RE: handbill/flyer schedule for week of May 7th

(name withheld),

Thanks for taking the initiative to do the library queries. I would be able to give you flyers to drop at the Rittenhouse and main branch and for some coffee houses. I can get you five hundred flyers by Tuesday, ok?? Also if you want to work on Tuesday at the Hour of Power site in center city and then do some lunch time/afternoon distribution, that would be great. Let me know.

Re: Zoning Matters - Tuesday

Dear Ms. (name withheld),

Just let me know where/what time I can pick up the Zoning Matters handbills (400-500 copies) to drop off at the libraries/coffee shops and I'll gladly pick them up/drop them off that day.

Also, yes, I would very much like to work at/during the "Hour of Power" site on Tuesday in Center City. Where is the location? And What time should I show up at? (this includes handing out flyers during lunch time/afternoon.)

postscript: Thank You very much for your response.
