Beautiful Day for a Parade!

Okay, so maybe Upper Perk’s Halloween Parade doesn’t start until this evening at 6 p.m. (Quakertown’s Parade is earlier this afternoon, 2 p.m.), but it should be a lovely crisp and clear autumn night – and the Upper Perkiomen Democratic Club, along with Area 2 Democrats, and Democratic candidates, will be in the very first division! The Upper Perk Parade starts off from the Red Hill Fire Company, and goes along Main Street through the three towns, ending at the East Greenville Fire Company at 4th and Washington Street.

If you’d like to be part of the parade, dress up in red, white, and blue, or as a scarecrow, or perhaps as a Secret Service official (NO toy guns or toy weapons) – just remember “when they go low, we go high” – and meet up with our group in front of the Red Hill Fire Company at 5 p.m.  There is very limited parking at the start of the parade, so people are encouraged to park by the East Greenville Fire Company and take a free shuttle bus between the fire companies (shuttles start around 4:45 p.m.)

Yard Signs!

We have a limited number of Clinton/Kaine signs, some Josh Shapiro for Attorney General signs, a very few Joanne Jackson for State Representative signs, and by Monday night we will have a few Katie McGitny for Senate signs.

If you’d like some for your front yard, you may pick them up at any time in East Greenville. In a few cases we may even deliver! Show your support and let “secret supporters” in town know that they aren’t alone.

Email updemclub@gmail.com for more information or to reserve a sign – all free!

Support Democratic Candidate Joanne Jackson, and then join us for the Vice Presidential Debate Watch Party!

Joanne Jackson is the Democratic candidate for State Representative in the 131st District (this district includes Upper Hanover, East Greenville, Pennsburg, and Red Hill), and she has been a frequent visitor to the Upper Perk Valley, and to the UPDC meetings and activities. We are happy and proud to be supporting her campaign and so we are dedicating this Tuesday night’s Debate Watch Party to helping her get elected to the PA State House this November.

On the evening of the Vice-Presidential Debate, Tuesday, October 4th, we will be phone banking for Joanne Jackson, who will be joining us that evening in East Greenville. The phone banking starts at 7 p.m. and will continue until 8:30 p.m. (when we’ll be breaking out the main refreshments and getting settled to watch the debate) The debate begins at 9 p.m. All democrats, and democratic supporters, are invited to join us at 124 Washington Street, East Greenville for all or part of the evening, whether it is to make phone calls or to watch the debate with like-minded folks.

And if Tuesday doesn’t fit into your schedule, Joanne Jackson is hosting phone banks every Monday night from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. at 4195 Estates Drive, Center Valley, PA, working to get out the vote and win the election against the incumbent Republican in the 131st.

Joanne is also planning a Weekend of Action, October 15 and 16th, 2016.Volunteers are needed to make phone calls, and for door to door canvassing, from noon – 4 p.m. each afternoon. If you can give even an hour of your time, it would be a great  help! Contact Kelly
