Thanks for visiting our events page!

If you've never taken the plunge to get involved in political action, we encourage you to get to know us by attending a meeting. We are a growing local party, but we need more people like you to step up and share your perspective. We are building teams of people to tackle projects like data entry and analytics, voter registration, special events, social media and content management, and candidate support and canvassing.

Virtual

Virtual Blue Wave Crew

COVID-19 won't stop us.  We can still get the job done for our McHenry County Democratic Party!

Our determined group has a plan to take on jobs we can accomplish distantly, month by month, as the 2020 General Election gets closer. It's only 4 1/2 months away!

Each month we have a list of jobs that need to get done and Crew Members sign up for what they can handle. We will work on our own, of course, but share materials, etc. as needed. We can work virtually - especially with events like:

  • Postcard Parties
  • Letter Writing
  • Phone Calls
  • And there will be Sign Painting - always! 

Why aren't you a member of the Blue Wave Crew? We need you to win! Just RSVP on this site or contact Cathy at (district6@mchenrydems.org) or call 815-621-4425.

Virtual Huntley Area Afternoon Happy Hour

Huntley Area Democrats

Afternoon Virtual Happy Hour with the
Sun City Area Democrats

(Includes McHenry County District 5 & 6 and Rutland & Hampshire Townships in Kane County) 

Join us on Zoom to discuss what's happening this month in Huntley. We will have a short meeting to keep you up to date on ongoing issues and then allow plenty of time for our main speaker, Jennifer Lee.  Jennifer is the senior advisor for the Vote Yes for Fairness initiative to help get the Fair Tax Referendum passed in November. She will explain it to us and why it is so important especially for taxpayers in Sun City where real estate taxes are so high. There will be time for questions. Don't worry we will explain how to ask questions using Zoom chat button. 

Invite a friend!  Let's keep looking for those Democrats hiding right in front of our eyes or people who may have switched over to our way of thinking!

Saturday Virtual Coffee in Harvard

Meet virtually with like-minded friends and neighbors to talk about political issues. Get a cup of coffee and a munchie and join us. Candidates running for office will stop by for a visit. This is your chance to meet them and ask questions. 

We have 4 1/2 months until Nov. 3rd. I'm sure mail-in-ballots and the fair tax will be just two of the topics that will come up. 

We need conversation to work through it all. Come have coffee and let's talk.

Bring a friend and we'll see you there!
