Happy June!

We hope your summer is off to a great start.

Thank you to all who attended our Skipjack Gala, supported us with donations, or purchased items at the silent auction! It was a wonderful evening of celebrating Democratic accomplishments and looking toward the work we must do in the coming elections. We raised about $2,000 to help get Democrats elected over the next few years.

The Democratic Club will meet Monday, June 17, 7-8pm, at the Lexington Park Volunteer Rescue Squad. Topics of discussion will include a new women's group, upcoming presidential debates, and even T-shirts! To view the agenda, click here.
