Come support President Obama!!!
Your neighbors in Henderson are throwing a party on Thursday, September 6th -- and they want you to come.
It's the night that President Obama will give his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention. If you were thinking of tuning in, then head on over to the watch party in Henderson -- because the energy that night will be something else. No one should be at home alone for this one.
Will you be there? Here's all the info:
What: Convention watch party in Henderson
Where: 2038 Shadow Brook Way
Henderson, NV 89074
When: Thursday, September 6th
When the President accepts the nomination, thousands of people across the country will be watching and cheering, at volunteer-organized parties a lot like the one in Henderson. You'll be in the perfect spot to catch every word the President says -- and when you feel inspired to clap, you'll be surrounded by others who are clapping, too.
There's going to be a lot more to the party than just watching the big speech -- including a livestream with special guests that will give you a look behind the scenes. There will be snacks and good conversations. You'll get to catch up with the people you already know who are a part of this organization, and you'll meet some new ones, too.
There's going to be lots of organizing to come in these last 66 days, but Thursday is going to be a chance to celebrate before we get much deeper into all of that. So I hope you can be there.
Let your neighbors know if you'll join them this Thursday:http://my.barackobama.com/2012-Convention-Watch-Parties
It should be a whole lot of fun.

Zooplankton are the most abundant aquatic animals on earth, and are central players in both community function and the energetics of oceans, lakes and ponds – even those in the desert! My research focuses on aspects of zooplankton ecology and evolution, from feeding behavior and population dynamics to biogeography, physiological ecology and – most recently – life history ecological genomics.
