Next week the League staff will be out on our Annual Summer Face the Truth Tour, which means we’ll be out on the roads and highways and sidewalks all over the metropolitan area holding the giant graphic pictures of abortion for all the world to see, and only the clerical staff will be in the office. But stay in touch with our website for daily reports.
Or if you’re really desperate or want to know where the next site is and can’t figure out this hotline, call our office for information at 773-777-2900, and our clerical staff will have the answer at their finger tips.
On Friday, July 10 we will be in and around Joliet all day, starting at 9 AM at Jefferson and Larkin, at 11:30 in Shorewood at Brook Forest and Black Road and at 3 PM at Route 59 and Caton Farm Road.
Saturday will find us in Niles at Touhy and Milwaukee at 9 AM, Evanston at 11:30 at Davis and Ridge and in Lincolnwood at 3 PM at McCormick and Touhy.
Sunday is a day off, to rest up and honor the Lord, and perhaps lick our wounds.
On Monday we’re on the Kennedy Overpass in downtown Chicago from 9:30 to 11. Meet at Madison Street and Des Plaines. We’ll be at the Daley Plaza at 11:30 and near the Union Station, Madison and Wacker, from 3:30 to 5:30 PM, taking a little extra time for the huge volume of pedestrian traffic at that location at the end of the workday.
Tuesday is another downtown Chicago day on Lake Shore Drive near Jackson at 9:30, the Art Institute of Chicago on Michigan Avenue at 11:30, and from 3:30 to 5:30, a two-hour stint again, this time at Adams and Wacker to catch the evening walking traffic heading for the train and home.
Wednesday will find us at Rand Road and Main Street in Lake Zurich at 9 AM, in Palatine at Rand and Dundee at 11:30 and at Arlington Heights Road and Rand in Arlington Heights at 3 PM.
Bridgeview, Chicago Ridge and Burbank will welcome us to the South Side on Thursday at 87th and Harlem in Bridgeview at 9 AM, 95th and Ridgeland in Chicago Ridge at 11:30, and 79th and Cicero in Burbank at 3 PM.
At 9 AM Friday we’ll line up on Archer and Cicero in Garfield Ridge, 11:30 in McKinley Park at Archer and Ashland and in Pilsen at 3 PM at Cermak and Ashland.
Saturday, July 18 will mark the end of the 2009 tour with three appearances out west in Aurora and 9 AM near the Planned Parenthood mega mill at Eola Road and New York Street. Naperville will be the lucky city at 11:30 when we meet there at Washington Street and Ogden Avenue, and we will finish the tour by the Fox Valley Mall from 3 to 4:30 PM. That’s at Route 59 and New York Street.
And by that time we’ll be about ready for a party, so we’ll all—everyone who took any part at all in the Face the Truth Tour—meet at the home of Eric Scheidler to celebrate. Eric puts on a great barbeque.
We hope you, dear caller, will be able to attend all or part of this year’s Face the Truth Tour, or just stop by to say hello, and pick up one of our brochures explaining all the photographs we’re showing and perhaps purchase one of our distinctive red Pro-Life Caps or a red “Face the Truth” t-shirt.
I plan to take extensive notes on all the special events, unusual activities and clever sayings that emerge from our twenty-four stops this year, and I will have a full report of the Tour on the Tuesday, July 21 Action News.
Your Action Will Make a World Of Difference
Here’s a suggestion before I sign off for the next week or ten days: if you’re feeling a little down because of all the bad news, messed up morals, bleak outlook for the economy, the horror of having liberals running the media, pro-abort legislatures dragging the country into depression and doom, Obama in the White House, gas prices up and money getting less valuable by the hour—then come out for at least one session of our Face the Truth Tour, and just see if that little sacrifice won’t pick up your spirits! You’ll be doing something Christ told his apostles and his disciples and all of us to do, “Go and teach.” I promise you, it will make a world of difference in your mood—and maybe in your life.
