Obama Rally in Eisenhower Park Today: Latest Update

The following is the latest on today's Obama Rally in Esienhower Park from Mark X. Cronin, Obama-Biden's LI Grassroots Coordinator.

If anyone knows of anything comparable schedule by the McCain-Palin campaign, please add as a comment or send as an email to latinolongisland@gmail.com. Thanks.

Here’s the latest on the Free Rally and Concert for Obama. The musical acts now include Graham Nash and David Crosby as well as Bruce Hornsby (“The Way It Is”). We are expecting a large crowd, but we cannot have enough people. The national media will be watching: let’s show the nation the support that Barack Obama and Joe Biden have on Long Island. We promise to have a great day.

Time: 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. – leaving you plenty of time to get home to watch the debate

Place: Eisenhower Park in East Meadow at the Harry Chapin Theater

Nearest Parking: Lots 6 and 6A offer the closest parking. You may need to park further away.

Nearest Train Station: LIRR Westbury station. No shuttle buses, but there will be taxis and it is almost exactly a one mile walk.

Volunteer Opportunities: We may need help staffing volunteer sign-u[p stations and a “Call a Swing State” station. Please ask for me upon arrival if you can help out.

Please bring your cell phone: We will ask all rally goers to make calls to swing states in support of Barack Obama during the rally.

Show Your Support: Bring your Obama signs or make them up. Wear your Obama shirts and buttons. We will have some signs and campaign material available.

This promises to be an amazing event. The entertainment currently includes: Graham Nash and David Crosby, Bruce Hornsby, Barefoot Truth, Ryan Star, Francis Dunnery, The Sleeping and John Hampson (from Nine Days). We will hear many inspiration speakers (though Barack cannot attend – he will be prepping for his debate). Come out and show your support, enjoy the day and have some fun.
