Perry County Community Gathering
The public was invited to a community gathering at the Perry County Courthouse in Marion, AL to watch the ACCR Foundation's very powerful (and entertaining) It's a Thick Book documentary. Participants also discussed the various issues with our current constitution as well as the remedies before our people.
All ACCR Board members, Chapter Chairs and Supporters were invited to attend as we planned our future steps to bring a constitutional convention to Alabama. Attendees were encouraged to bring stories to share of the impact of the 1901 Constitution in their area and examples of how they convinced neighbors to support a constitutional convention. Volunteers were asked to locate at least two people per county throughout the state and invite them to come. Those who attended were then invited to stay for a Constitution Convention Coalition meeting afterward.

April 10, 2003
The trip to Eufaula began as soon as I returned to Montgomery from an extremely productive visit to Florence on Thursday. After a brief episode at the bus lot involving a fire extinguisher, a friendly mechanic, and a trip to the gas station, 'Reform One' was ready to hit the road again. I was a little sad that I missed out on Eufaula's Pilgrimage last weekend, but better late than never. The bus pulled into the city limits around 10:00 PM and I was lucky enough to stay in a guest room of a ACCR supporter in Eufaula.
