10/2/2017 LOCAL DEMOCRATS -- Early October e-news

posted Mar 28, 2018, 10:56 PM by Douglas County Democrats

Dear NCW Democrats and Friends, 

Advocacy and activism for what we believe is very important, even in small measures.  Some of us march, some write or call or knock on doors.  Some volunteer or donate.  Some care for families, teach, or run for office.  Together, these acts make a huge difference.  Thank you!  And if you find that your energy and emotions are spent, consider something that soothes the soul: donate blood, knit a hat for kids in need, take a walk and kick some leaves, bake something spicy for a neighbor (or yourself!).  Remember that “THIS IS NOT WHAT NORMAL IS SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE—KEEP THE FAITH.” 

A busy week past.  Full week ahead.
