Letter Writing Campaign

Please join DCDCC and DCDW for a joint letter writing event aimed at supplying letters of support for our Democratic candidates and ideals which will be sent to local newspapers.  All materials and refreshments will be provided so come as you are and join the fun!  We’ll need ideas, people who are willing to sign their names to their own letters or letters written by another member. (There are some who cannot sign due to their job or position in local or state government.)

The event will be held on Monday, August 29 from 10 AM to 12 PM at 1143 Country Club Drive, Minden.  Take Rt. 395 to Stephanie Way.  Head east to the third street on your left (South Santa Barbara).  Turn left into the Saratoga Springs Development.  At the first stop sign, turn left onto Country Club.  My house is the 7th house on the left.

Please RSVP at 775-267-3982 by Friday, August 26th.
