Brewing HOPE!

Beer can do a lot of things.

Well, I am a big fan of making beer solve any problem. And, the fires are no exception. I am organizing a Beer Fundraiser for those displaced by the 'Garden Fire."

I call it "Brewing Hope" and I plan on making people happy with beer and using the proceeds from that beer to bring about the necessary recourse for those involved in our local tragedy.

I remember meeting Fred last fall during his campaign. We drank some beers and talked about beer a little and he always remembered who I was- which is nice. Anyhow, he was a nice dude and I remember the time when he brought a torn out ad from a magazine to the bar. The ad was for Stella Artois- and it displayed the proper technique for pouring the beer. It made a decent impression on me, despite hating the beer.

Anyhow, I believe in the Van Allen philosophy as applied to gardenstuff and whatnot; it coincides directly to my philosophy on beer. Pure, organic, and beautiful. I get it. And they got it. And now I'd like to see them get it all back again, of course, alongside the rest of those displaced. I want life to be returned back to normal so we can all have a beer and feel all the better for having grown a little more in these trying times.

If anyone would like to help- contact me

The poster has all the information and we will be setting up a box for collection of toiletries, supplies, clothing and whatever else seems useful to those that need it. We will be selling beer donated by Dale Bros for donations to be directly given to the needy.

I might have some special tricks up my sleeve as well. Please come by and show your support. We're not celebrating, but we are reinforcing the human spirit with a little brew to ease our own worries and to soothe the day's hurries.

Cheers!!!! Please come by.

Tibbi, you the man!!

Thanks for coordinating all of this. Pomona Heritage has put it out to its membership, Meg has posted in on M-M-M-My Pomona, Anduhrew has posted in on Student in Pomona, and you've gotten some press. I hope that it all works out to the wonderful event that I'm sure it will be. I look forward to being there and I'll even let you talk me into trying some beer, at least it will be for a good cause.

Again, thanks for everything.

Tibbi, We have got to meet and talk about our heritage. I am 7th generation Pomona from Don Ygnacio Palomares. Raised on the south side and graduated from Garey. I cannot make tonight's event but will be sending in a donation. Great job and hope to meet with you real soon. David Allen is a good friend so we'll get together soon. Bob Terry
