Dredging Meeting - THIS IS IT! - Dec 11th 7:00PM

Dear Neighbors:

This coming December 11 represents the most important day in the history of Lake Worth. On that day, you and I will convince the Fort Worth City Council to actually proceed with the dredging of the lake.

Now that the (CIIP) engineering proposal to dredge Lake Worth is complete, the Fort Worth City Council must now vote on the project. With huge gas revenues now beginning to accrue, lack of money is no longer a valid reason to delay the dredging. On December 11th, the Lake Worth Alliance and lake supporters will be presenting why dredging Lake Worth now is important to the entire city.

The council's decision will be strongly influenced by the number and enthusiasm of the people who attend the meeting. EVERY PERSON WHO CARES ABOUT LAKE WORTH NEEDS TO BE AT THE DECEMBER 11TH CITY COUNCIL MEETING!

I cannot stress enough that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. YOU need to be at that meeting. YOU need to get excited. Your individual presence will make a HUGE difference. This event is high priority.

With your help, a clean and sufficiently deep Lake Worth will soon become a reality.

It is vital that you do three things right now:
1) Mark your calendar now.
2) Tell your friends and neighbors how important this meeting is and that they need to be there.
3) Copy and email this notice to everyone that you know who cares about Lake Worth.

Date: December 11th
Time: 7:00PM (Be there by 6:30 to get a seat)
Where: City Council Chambers
1000 Throckmorton,
Fort Worth
What to bring: Enthusiasm!
What to expect: Success!

Sincerely,
Michael Dallas

Dear Neighbors:

Congratulations! The turnout for last night's city council meeting was tremendous. Over 200 supporters showed up on a rainy night to support the Lake Worth effort. From all communications, it appears that the Fort Worth City Council is now ready to move forward with dredging the lake. The council's intentions were further confirmed last night when Mayor Moncrief held up a "Dredge Lake Worth" sign and said, "We get it! Your mail has been delivered!"

Every person who attended last night's meeting deserves an enormous amount of the credit for the success. It is important that you realize how valuable your attendance was. Think of it this way. Approximately 200 supporters attended last night's council meeting. The proposed improvements will run over $100,000,000. If we divide $100,000,000 by 200, each person's effort was worth $500,000. How often do you get an opportunity to earn $500,000 for a couple hours work?

While the calculation is tongue-in-cheek (I am certainly not minimizing the tremendous effort or countless hours that many people have invested), it demonstrates how important each one of us is to the cause. You can take pride in the fact that Lake Worth will soon have a new beginning and new role in the life of our great city.

Again, thanks everyone! You are great!

If you need anything, don't hesitate to call me.

Sincerely,
