The first big event for the Upper Perkiomen Democratic Club (UPDC) is our Voter Registration table at East Greenville Community Day on Saturday, September 10, 2016. We will have forms for new voter registration and absentee ballot application forms (if you know of any college students who will be out of town on November 8th, or if you will be out of town when the polls are open in PA, be sure to pick up, fill out, and mail in an absentee ballot application!) We also have campaign literature and signs; and will be handing out balloons, stickers, pens, and more. Community Day is held on Main Street, between Pennsburg Square and 4th Street, East Greenville, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Our first club meeting this fall will be on Tuesday, September 13, 2016, beginning at 7 p.m. Our meetings are open to all Democrats and are held in the Upper Perkiomen Public Library (lower level), 350 Main Street, Red Hill, PA. (There is street parking as well as parking in the lot in the back of the building.) Items on the agenda for September’s meeting include local phone banking, Debate Watch Parties, GOTV activities, and our participation in the Upper Perk Halloween Parade.
The first Presidential Debate is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. on Monday, September 26th, 2016. The UPDC will be hosting a Debate Watch Party in East Greenville that night. Before the debate begins, we invite folks to come by early to do some phone banking (we’ll provide the cell phones if you prefer not to use your own phone) from 7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., and then stay to watch the debate with a friendly Democratic group. (Oh, and did I mention there will be snacks and beverages?)
