We are excited to report that many new and old faces are enthusiastically supporting the Fremont County Democratic Party. Over the last year we enjoyed many successes such as the Get Out The Vote drive, our annual FDR dinner, and generous Century Club donations. Attendance at this fall’s debate watches has been phenomenal! Thanks to all of you for your support!
But we find ourselves at a crossroads and need your help. We are in desperate need of people to step forward and replace the exhausted individuals who, with the support of countless others, have worked tirelessly over the years on events, fund raising, and the county caucus / assembly.
Andrea Stein has graciously agreed to take over the Century Club. Our most important source of funds, the Century Club was founded by Virgil Olson and Jim Milam in 2006, and has been most recently chaired by Roxanne Bradshaw. The Century Club is essential in keeping our office open.
The events committee, made up of Roxanne Bradshaw, Cathe Meyrick, Gloria Stultz, Donna Murphy, and Joan Parker, retired following last year’s FDR dinner and have not as yet been replaced. While Donna Young has agreed to chair the Christmas party, and Janet Reither is chairing the FDR dinner. Janet will need a lot of help putting on the dinner. The FDR dinner has always been our second most important source of income as well as a chance to meet candidates and enjoy a great evening. We do not have a permanent events committee. Volunteer movers and shakers are needed for those important roles.
The upcoming caucus and county assembly are also in jeopardy. Greg Sisk is the current organizer and contact person for this committee, but a chair and additional volunteers are needed. We currently have several dedicated Precinct Committee Persons, however there are multiple openings to be filled at the caucus.
Party visibility is crucial to our presence in Fremont County! Most important is the office, which has been managed and manned by Catherine Sounart for many years, and additional help is needed. Other volunteer opportunities would include participating in community events such as parades, honk and waves, booths, and meet and greets– all to emphasize that there are Democrats living and working in Fremont County.
Please think about what you can contribute to the future of the Fremont County Democratic Party. If not you, who? Bring your ideas to the Central Committee Meeting on Wednesday, November 13th, to show support for our local party and our chair, Heather Zimmerman.
Together we can do this!
