The start of fall is not just when pumpkins, and pumpkin spice, becomes all to prevalent, but when the Upper Perkiomen Democratic Club (UPDC) becomes more of a public presence in the Upper Perkiomen Valley. Despite what some in our area might think, there are many democrats living and working (and voting) in the area and we need to let folks know we are here!
As we have for nearly 20 years, UPDC volunteers will be setting up a Voter Registration and Information Table on Main Street in East Greenville for Community Day. Community Day this year is on Saturday, September 9, 2017. Stop by and say hello, and pick up a balloon, or a pen, or a Hate Has No Home here sign!
All local democrats are invited to join us on Tuesday, September 12, 2017 for our first UPDC meeting of the fall at the Upper Perkiomen Public Library, 350 Main Street, Red Hill, PA (in the lower level; parking available in the back lot, as well as street parking on Main Street). The meeting begins at 7 p.m. Items on the agenda include the upcoming Halloween Parade and the November elections.
The UPDC has had an entry in the annual Upper Perkiomen Halloween Parade since 2000! Last year, instead of walking alongside our donkey, we rode on the float, and that is our plan again this year.Thousands of people line the parade route along Main Street from Red Hill to East Greenville and this is one more opportunity to make it known that the Democratic Party is still here, still fighting and standing up for what we believe, and to let local democrats know that they are not alone. And yes, we’ll also be giving away a lot of candy to the kids along the sidelines!
