Satruday Forum On the Permanent Fund - Senior Center

Cliff Groh's post today at Alaska Political Corruption reminded me of tomorrow's (Saturday, May 2, 2009) event at the Senior Center:

…you should come to the forum on “Hard Times and the Permanent Fund” from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. It’s on Saturday at the Anchorage Senior Center at 1300 E. 19th Avenue. It’s open to the public and it’s free—there’s even going to be coffee, muffins, and fruit.

Here's from the flier:
