From the Chair:

Democrats! I hope you're having a good week. 

Please make plans to join us on Thursday for our first in-person meeting of 2021! We'll have a potluck gathering at the south picnic shelter at Brookside Park in Farmington. Bring a dish to share or just bring your appetite! We'll dish up food at 7 and have a short meeting over dinner. 

Our meeting will be a great opportunity for you to hear about our upcoming plans, especially our first annual golf tournament fundraiser on July 10 in Kirtland. This will be an exciting event and we need players, volunteers, and financial sponsors to pull it off! 

I hope you are all taking good care. 

Sound off,

Your executive committee has decided to host our May General Party meeting in-person at an outdoor picnic shelter at Brookside Park on May 20 at 7pm. 
We made this decision because the covid vaccines are widely available and an increasing number of people are now fully vaccinated. In addition, recent guidance from the CDC has clarified that outdoor events are relatively less likely to spread the virus. If you feel comfortable attending, bring your favorite dish to share or just bring yourself!
