Hi freaks,

The Rose is continuing to bring to Hogtown's people good
entertainment at good prices. But we need your help.
What we're into is briefly this.....
There's an old abandoned theatre in the Black Ghetto,
the Rose Theatre, dig? Our fantasy is to renovate that
place into a people's auditorium and community center.
To get this together we've been putting on rock concerts
at the University of Florida Auditorium, charging people / "Give ,wyow tiredyour

you better entertainment. But to do this we need more
people's help. Right now there's only about 4 or 5
people getting the Rose thing together. We need peo-
ple to help us with community projects along with the
A few of the current projects are....
The Hogtown Free Clothing Center, or whatever you want
to call it, where you can pick up some free clothes. All
we are asking is what you want to pay. This thing should
be together next week. We need people to donate any sur-
plus clothing plus a few people to organize the store.
Another thing is the Hogtown Rapid Transit System or
HRTS. A plan to carry people around town in a couple of
VW buses. We also need people to get this together..
So if you can dig it, do it. Come by the concerts and
the Hogtown General Store or call us and let us know
what you're thinking.
