Members and friends,

The Rhein-Neckar Branch, NAACP (a U.S. Army Garrison, Heidelberg, private organization), will hold its regular monthly general membership meeting on Wednesday, March 26, 2007, starting at 6:30 p.m. The meeting will be held at the German American Institute (DAI) (top floor). The DAI is at Sofienstrasse 12, in Heidelberg (Look for a sign in the entrance hallway to see in which room the meeting will be held). Parking is available in nearby garages under the Europa Hotel (Europaeische Hof) (entrance is on the Friedrich Ebert Anlage next to the Hotel Europa), under Bismarck Platz, or behind the Mengler Bau.) The meeting will feature an open discussion on voting, the conventions, and the coming elections.

Members are requested to help find qualified persons to serve the Branch: We need a secretary and assistant secretary, a treasurer and assistant treasurer. We also need to have persons to run the political action committee, the membership committee, and the community coordination committee. If you know of members or other persons, who would become members, who could serve in any of the above positions, please bring up their names at the general membership meeting on 26 March.

Copies of the speech that Rev Harcourt Klinefelter gave at our MLK08 event on 26 January are available. Copies of the speeches made by other guest speakers are also available. Please contact Rudy or me if you would like copies.

For more information, please contact; DeBora Daniel, Branch First Vice President, at 06222-935964; or Aubrey McCaster, Branch Second Vice President, at 06205-289970.



AFRICAN AMERICAN STUDENTS ARE NOT APPLYING Even if you do not have a college-aged child at home, please share this with someone who does, pass this scholarship information on to anyone and everyone that comes to mind. Though there are a number of companies and organizations that have donated moneys for scholarship use to African Americans, a great deal of the money is being returned because of a lack of interest. No one is going to knock on our doors and ask if we can use a scholarship. Take the initiative to get your children involved. There is no need for money to be returned to donating companies because we fail to apply for it. Please pass this information on to family members, nieces, nephews, friends with children etc. We must get the word out that money is available. If you are a college student or getting ready to become one, you probably already know how useful additional money can be. Our youth really could use these scholarships.

(Please share this information with other eligible students who may be
interested in this program.)

White House Internship Program

The White House Internship provides an opportunity to experience day-to-day
life at the White House while working on a variety of tasks and projects.

In addition to normal office duties, interns attend weekly lectures,
volunteer at special events, participate in tours, and contribute to a
community service project in the Washington, D.C. area. White House
Internships are unpaid positions and participants are responsible for
arranging their own transportation and housing. Approximately 100 interns
are chosen each spring, summer, and fall to participate in this highly
competitive program.

We invite you to apply. Please read the Intern Application
( ernment/intern_application.pdf ) and the White
House Office descriptions
( ernment/off-descrp.html) carefully. Office
descriptions can help you determine your areas of interest and assist you
in making an informed decision about which offices might fit your
qualifications. Interns will be selected based on their application and
demonstrated interest in public service.

Applicants must be:

At least 18 years of age on or before the first day of the internship
Enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program at a college or
university, or graduated the previous semester
A United States citizen
Completed application materials must be submitted to Meghan Espinoza,
Intern Coordinator in the office of White House Personnel, at
intern_application@whitehouse. gov on or before the following deadlines:

Fall 2008 Internship
August 26 - December 12, 2008
Application Deadline: June 3, 2008

Upon acceptance, candidates must consent to a security investigation prior
to their start date and a random drug test. All security measures are
confidential and intended to protect the applicant as well as the Executive
Office of The President.

Again, thank you for your interest in the White House Internship Program.
We look forward to hearing from you.
