Title: ItsanSKS, eagleriver, and fisherdawg get DAR Award for History
Post by: fisherdawg on March 24, 2014, 01:08:33 PM
eagleriver got the ball rolling an this as it was his efforts that got us scheduled for the LibertySeed we gave on Feb 13th.
Last Thursday, March 20th, the DAR invited us to their award ceremony for 2014. It was a chance to see and to hear from some of the outstanding youth they recognized this year for citizenship, JROTC award winners, and scholoarship winners from their essay contest.
They awarded the 3 of us a beautiful certificate for efforts in American History (LibertySeed!).
Better yet, it lead to the next public LibertySeed at the Alaska Genealogy Society meeting on Wednesday June 18th 7 pm to 9 pm at the BP Energy Center!

  There needs to be a press release sent out about this, both to AK media and nationwide.

  I mean, is this the FIRST recognition by a national group of the value and worth of Libertyseeds?

  Has the DAR sent a PR out on it? (Doesn't matter, as they will cover more than AS, whereas we want to emphasize AS...)

Fred,
I'll draft a PR for our side.  Beside you, who else should I include to get it edited & reviewed?  Is there information somewhere on the Forum about distribution of the PR once we've completed drafting it? (Seems to me I've read that before, Promotions or WL-X?....)

I'll draft a PR (or PR's)  for my good friends in the Col. John Mitchell Chapter DAR both for our awards individually and for their entire awards ceremony and see if they want to run with either.  I bet they will.

I'll repeat for the June 18th L/S at the Alaska Genealogy Society

   We still don't have a formal "promo team", but I have hopes that one will emerge over the next few months - we'll have to see if, after 7+ years of knowing we need one, and seeing the growing number of empty slots on the firing lines, we can finally get enough volunteers motivated to step up to work in an area critical to the future of Appleseed.

   Like I say, I have hopes...

    Hmm, distribution? There are websites which offer a function which allows you to enter the zip of your target area to generate a list of all the media servicing that zip - and then allows you to send a mass PR email to them.

    GOA used to have one. Prob any good advocacy group (think "Save the Whales") could have one, and you could use it, SFAIK.

I've compiled a fair media distribution list for Alaska.  This will be a good reason to updated it send and out the P/R's.
Because we have been getting close to sellouts as well my focus on other aspects the program, I haven't used the media list this year.  Time to get after it.  I've got some IIT's that want too.  Phew! ;)
