Connecticut volunteers blog about Obama campaign at General Synod

Monday, June 25, 2007

From Connecticut for Obama '08 blog (no longer up):
The weather was perfect and the day was awesome for approximately 40 volunteers who staffed tables in three-hour shifts from 8AM to 6PM in front of Hartford's Civic Center and in Bushnell Park. The event was United Church of Christ's 50th anniversary celebration, Synod in the City. On Saturday, June 23rd, Senator Barack Obama gave an electrifying speech stating, "Somehow, somewhere along the way, faith stopped being used to bring us together and faith started being used to drive us apart," as quoted b the Associated Press. Click here for full article.

As volunteers staffing tables, our goal was to gather as many new supporters as possible. Many volunteers stayed long after their shifts, gathering signatures and talking to folks about why they support Barack Obama. Anticipation of when Senator Obama was going to arrive kept the momentum building. At the end of the Senator's speech, those of us who were staffing tables at that time we ushered into the Civic Center where we had an opportunity to meet him in person and take a photo. It was an electrifying moment, confirming and refreshing our commitment to do whatever we can to help Senator Obama become the next President of the United States.
