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.

Data Management Team Meeting

Join us for data management and data syncing activities - new volunteers are welcome!  We'll continue with data syncing and tagging event attendees.

RSVP if you are able to come so that we can get your logins to the two systems established in time for your arrival.  Bring a laptop if you have one. The first session is usually slow going as we complete setup in both systems and get you acclimated to the tasks.

Note: For those of you willing to work on data entry remotely, we'll need to work together for a few sessions and then we can pursue remote assistance.

Labor Day — it’s campaign season!

Join us at the kick-off for the campaign season. Pick-up petition packets, meet candidates, donate to a worthy cause, and have fun with like minded folks as we gear up for the 2020 campaign.

There's much to do and we can't do it without you.

The Party will be donating meats to grill and veggie burgers, along with buns and paper goods. If you would like to help grill, let us know. Please bring a dish to pass and whatever non-alcoholic beverage you would like to drink. There is some seating, but you may wish to bring a lawn chair.

Finally, every year at the picnic we donate to a worthy cause. This year we will be collecting copy/printer paper for Turning Point which provides services to women and children fleeing domestic violence.
