Philadelphia 2016 update

I just received an email the other day from the Philadelphia 2016 DNC Host Committee. Basically, they wanted to let folks to know that it is not too late to sign up if you are interested in volunteering for next year’s Democratic National Convention (and to reach out to those who registered months ago, and were afraid they’d been forgotten). The DNC is scheduled to take place the week of July 25th, 2016.

For those keeping track, the Republican National Convention will be held in Cleveland, Ohio the week before,  July 18-21, 2016.

Coming Soon: Volunteer Opportunities
The Philadelphia 2016 Host Committee for the Democratic National Convention continues to need volunteers and will begin engaging registered volunteers more in early 2016. If you have not yet registered and would like to sign up to be a volunteer, please do so here. You can also email with any related questions.

Looking forward to January 2016

The Upper Perkiomen Democratic Club is taking the month of December off so its members may pursue other (non-political) activities, and rest up for what will be a very busy year ahead! In other words, no meeting on the 2nd Tuesday in December.

We will be meeting on Tuesday, January 12, 2016, beginning at 7 p.m. at the Upper Perkiomen Valley Library, 350 Main Street, Red Hill. It will be a relatively short meeting, so that everyone who wants to be home in time to watch President Obama’s last State of the Union address (scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. that night) may do so. At this meeting we will be making plans for the annual January Potluck, along with starting to sketch out ideas for the year ahead (with major races including for the Senate; Senator Toomey is up for re-election and two strong Democrats, Joe Sestak and Kate McGinty, are running in the primary for the opportunity to defeat this staunch, very conservative, Republican in November, and the Democratic National Convention taking place down the road in Philadelphia in July, they’ll be lots to do in 2016).

All democrats in the area are invited to the annual UPDC Potluck on Saturday, January 23, 2016 at the Upper Perk Senior Center, 517 Jefferson Street, East Greenville, PA, from 6 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Bring your favorite hot or cold dish, or salad, or dessert, or beverage, to share with the group. This is always a good time and there is always good food and good company to enjoy.
