Community Caravan

Written by Cafe Campesino on May 1, 2004 in Community Caravan, NEWSLETTER |

Café Campesino continues to be in the news following our April 8 appearance on WALB. Several articles appeared during the visit of our producers, both in the Albany Herald and the Americus Times-Recorder. We’re also looking forward to an upcoming article in The Atlanta Journal Constitution!

As anyone who lives in the South can tell you, seasons change in an instant, and this year has been no exception. Sometime between 2:00 and 2:15 p.m. on May 4, summer started here in Americus, but don’t think that the heat and humidity will slow us down! We’ll be at several different events this upcoming month, as well as participating in causes in which we believe.

Saturday, May 22, we’ll be joining the athletic folks at 8 a.m. for Run Americus, Americus’ own annual 5K run. We’ll be passing out coffee to those who’ve come to cheer on the participants, and to any participants who need a bit of buzz to start.

Tuesday, June 8 will find us partnering with The Sentient Bean in Savannah to serve coffee at the International Festival for Peace and Civil Liberties. The festival will be held in Savannah and is set to coincide with the G-8 Summit being held 80 miles to the south on Sea Island. In addition, Bill will be speaking Monday night, June 7 at the Sentient Bean about globalization and commodities trade. Check out for more information about the festival.

In keeping with tradition – and having a good time while doing so – we’ll be serving coffee in the early morning to the barely-conscious bike riders at the 2004 BRAG, June 12-19. The bike ride begins in Toccoa, Georgia, and ends at Tybee Island, just outside of Savannah. Geoffrey, our outreach coordinator, will again be heading things up, supported by J., Victoria, and Alan. This will be J.’s first weeklong BRAG jaunt, but Victoria and Alan are now old hands at this game! We’re delighted to have them back helping out and pleased to have a new face joining the team. Attendees may purchase a coffee bracelet for $25 on their meal form at registration (which is the easiest way, according to Geoffrey) or they can pick one up at the beginning of the ride from the booth. We look forward to seeing you all again!
