Meetings & Socials
This is the place to start getting involved
The Democratic Party of McHenry County meets once a month on the third Wednesday of the month (except for December). We announce details and location of the meetings on this page, and we encourage you to attend. If you do plan to attend a meeting, please RSVP on the meeting details page so we know you are coming. That makes it much faster to get you checked in at the door.
If big meetings are just not your thing, we also have smaller local meetings and activities in each of our six County Board districts. There's plenty to do at the local level, and your District Chair would love to meet you and work with you to support our activities. You can find out more about those events on our County Board pages.

It is worth your time and it is a great opportunity to ask questions in our comfortable setting....Happy Hour in Sun City.

When it's time to Drink Liberally:
Drinking Liberally is an informal, inclusive progressive social group. Raise your spirits with us while you raise your glass. Share ideas with friends new and old. Drinking Liberally gives like-minded, left-leaning individuals a place to talk politics or any other topic that comes to mind. You don't need to be a policy expert and this isn't a book club — just come and learn from peers, trade jokes, vent frustration and hang out in an environment where it's not taboo to talk politics. Don't worry if you don't drink alcohol. Many of our members prefer soft drinks.
Drinking Liberally is a nationally chartered non-profit. It is not affiliated with the Democratic Party. Learn more about Drinking Liberally and Living Liberally at www.livingliberally.org/drinking
