Hello, it is already 01-22-14 and damn near the close of the business day. I expect most people have already planned their Saturday activities by this time and would have to cancel or rearrange their schedules to participate in this event. Have none of Assembly member Melendez's staff or planners been aware of this short notice or registered voters not being told of this much needed events?

Martha calm down. It was most likely announced somewhere else. You need to read something other than the patch.

Hey Martha.....if it does not fit your schedule, don't go, they really do not need you these for a fun and successful class, I am sure they can do it without you.....you are way too ugly of a person on the inside and out to be raped so you should be safe from that aspect...all you should have to worry about is your stalkers from Lake Smellsomore Resident and his wife Roberta.....Of course you may want some form of protection from your head going up Ken's ass if he stops to fast.......For the rest of the women in Lake Elsinore and the rest of the District that want to do something positive for themselves and their community, looks fun!
