Come Out and Help Turn the 42nd Blue!

The 42nd LD Democrats and the Whatcom Democrats are working to turn the 42nd LD blue by making a strong showing in parades and booths throughout the County.
We are looking for volunteers to staff the Democrat’s Booth at the Old Settlers Picnic  in Pioneer Park in Ferndale, July 28th through the 31st.  The Old Settlers Association does a good job of putting  on a great festival and it is always a fun place to have a booth.  We could use more people to walk* in the Old Settlers Grand Parade on Saturday, July 30 also.  
In the weeks ahead we will be setting up booths in several other Festivals and entering more parades, as well as staffing the NW Washington Fair,  volunteers are needed in all.  
Please call me if you have any questions or to volunteer.    Thanks for your help in turning Whatcom County blue!
