2019 Mid-June eNews

posted Jun 17, 2019, 11:21 PM by Douglas County Democrats

Dear NCW Democrats and Friends, 

3 things:

         1)  Thank you to the 20+ people who “put a little skin in the game!” by making a financial contribution during the past 2 weeks.  We really appreciate you!  For those who still want to donate, here’s how you can do it.  Spoiler alert: wishing for change only works in dreams and fairy tales.  It takes work – over time – to bring about the change we need.  Please consider a donation in any amount (to each county, if possible) to support keeping our office open, to train volunteers, and to help host public events to make everyone in North Central WA know that DEMOCRATS ARE ALIVE AND GROWING!  You count on us.  Can we count on you? 

·         Donate

o   online (via our convenient ActBlue accounts): Democrats of Chelan County  OR  Douglas County Democrats

o   by check (Chelan Democrats, POBox 1061, Wenatchee; Douglas Co Democrats, 630 Valley Mall Pkwy #175, E Wenatchee),

o   by cash (at the Dem HQ Office, 768 S Mission, Wenatchee – or when we see each other at events),

·         SignUP to help do work at the office, to register voters in the community, to help your neighborhood team: NCW Democrats Events & Support SignUPs.  The website for each county organization also has a volunteer form to complete and submit (use the county org links above).


2)  This week:

·         Our regular Democratic “Coffee Break”, held on the 1st and 3rd Tues of ea month, will move to the headquarters office TOMORROW 6/18, 10a—noon, 768 S Mission, Wenatchee.  All Democrats and friends are welcome!

·         Also, we’ll begin a new monthly event that we’re calling “Think & Drink.”  The first one will take place this Thursday, 6/20, from 6:30-7:30p at the Riverside Pub/Columbia Brewing Co, 538 Riverside Dr, Wenatchee.  Casual no-host get together to network, discuss the week’s events, get to know your fellow like-minded friends in Chelan and Douglas counties. 

          3)  Join with friends to watch the FIRST Presidential Primary Debates on June 26 and/or June 27!, Watch parties will be held at Bob’sBurgers&Brew in E Wen and Gustav’s in Leavenworth.  SignUP to help us take a count of how many people to expect.  We’ll be set up by 5p. Come anytime during the evening.  Please plan to order dinner to support these businesses! 


Congresswoman Kim Schrier:  Thanks for reaching out to our community, for showing up at our schools, on our trails, meeting with local business owners and community members, for your enthusiastic support for the Wenatchee Pride Festival!  Come back often.
