Three-hundred-and-ninety-two years ago colonial pilgrims and the native Wampanoag gathered for a feast to celebrate a successful harvest. And when we join with our families and friends in a few days for Thanksgiving we’ll be carrying on a tradition that precedes the founding of our country. Happy Thanksgiving, Dems!
And now a few items to take note of:
About the time you’re probably reading this, you’ll still have time to join us for the Davis Democrat’s first Community Forum on the subject of Common Core. Representatives of the Utah State Office of Education, Davis School District, Utah PTA, and the American Federation of Teachers will be speaking on ‘What is Common Core, and What does it mean for Students, Parents, and Teachers?’. Here are the details:
When: November 20, 2013
Time: 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Place: Davis County Administrative Building – Auditorium
And if you have a bit of time earlier in the day, stop by the Capitol at noon for a rally to encourage Governor Herbert to accept federal funding to expand Medicaid so that the most vulnerable of our uninsured citizens will have access to health care. Learn more about this rally at the event’s Facebook page: Utah Rally For Medicaid Expansion.
Are you under 36 (or have a good fake ID)?
‘Cause if you are you can, and should, join the Davis County Young Democrats. Our county’s youngest voters are some of the least active (and least represented) citizens. Republicans are busy organizing the youth in our area, but it’s Democratic values that are much more in line with this generation’s positions on the issues. Still in high school? You can join too. In fact we’re looking for high school students to help start Young Dems High School chapters. Contact Geoff Partain (email@example.com) to learn how you can get involved.
Breakfast Meet-up Holiday Party
Ordinarily I’d welcome you to join us the second Saturday of each month for our Monthly Breakfast Meet-Up at Granny Annie’s in Kaysville, but not this time. This time I’m inviting you to join us for a Breakfast Holiday Party at Granny Annie’s in Kaysville.
Come join other Dems for conversation and frivolity, and bring the kids too because our special guest this month is Santa Clause! Here are the details:
Davis Dems Breakfast Holiday Meet-Up
Date: December 14, 2013
Time: 10 a.m.
Place: Granny Annie’s Restaurant ( 286 N 400 W, Kaysville, UT 84037)
Bring: Food for those a little less fortunate. We’ll be collecting nutritious, non-perishable food items (in factory-sealed containers) for the food bank.
Same Dem place, New Dem Time
Did you notice that the above event starts at 10 a.m. instead of 9:30? We’ve made a few changes that you’ll want to note on your calendars. The Breakfast Meet-Up will now be on the Second Saturday of Each Month at 10 a.m.,
Another change: the Central Committee will no longer meet prier to the breakfast, instead, starting in January the Central Committee will meet the Last Tuesday of Each Month at 6:30 p.m.
It’s Never Too Early to Plan A Caucus
The County Party caucuses and convention are right around the corner, and we need volunteers to help organize them. Contact Geoff Partain (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you can spare a couple hours a month as a member of the Caucus & Convention Organizing Committee.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving.
