Love Day '09

So it's happening.  Love Day '09.  The inaugural edition.  Here are the details:

When? 10:30am to 1:00pm on Valentine's Day

Where? Meet at The Scout Monument in Penn Valley Park; we will spread out through the community after we rally there

What? We will be passing out sack lunches to members of the community as an act of love on a day that is kind of dedicated to love.

What to Bring? Sack lunches to pass out - there is no minimum or maximum number of lunches to bring, just bring what you can.

What About Lunch For Myself? For those who are interested, we will meet for lunch around 1:15pm at Waldo Pizza (75th and Wornall)

This event is the product of a warm response to this article that ran in the Kansas City Star at the beginning of January- - people said they'd be interested in doing the same thing. So that's what we're doing, passing out lunches around the community. Why not dedicate an hour and half of your Valentine's Day to serving other people? Bring your friends. Everyone is invited. We'll go out in groups to different parts of the downtown community.

If you have questions, don't hesitate to contact me ( If you don't live in Kansas City, do something similar in your city! Spread the love.

Ok, this is a lame question, but you said it goes from 10:30-1:00 and then you said, "Why not dedicate an hour and a half..." But 10:30-1:00 would be 2 and a half hours, right? I just figured one of those statements was incorrect and I was wondering which one. Love you! So excited for Saturday!

Yeah, you're right. I got it wrong. But I guess I was thinking we'd start passing out lunches at 11am and end around 12:30-12:45 to get to Waldo Pizza.
