RADC Annual Picnic and Membership Drive

Sunday, September 20, 2015 - 1:00pm to 3:00pm
Dear Rochester Area Democrats,
     Our twenty-first annual Family Picnic in the Park promises to be a great one.  It will be Sunday, September 20, 2015 from 1-3 pm at the same location as last year--the Kiwanis Pavilion in the Rochester Municipal Park, which is off Pine Street near the corner of Rochester Road and University and behind the Municipal and Police Building over the bridge.  All food and beverages provided by the RADC. 

     We are delighted to have Democratic Leader Tim Greimel from the Michigan House of Representatives and Melissa Gilbert, candidate for the 8th Congressional District, as our special guests. We have all been proud of Tim's achievements as an elected official who began his rise to leadership in the Rochester area. You may have heard about Melissa's candidacy recently. She was the star of the Little House on the Prairie television show as a child.  She has served two terms as President of the Screen Actor's Guild and has served as Vice President of the AFL-CIO Executive Council. Melissa will be a high profile candidate in the next election.  Other elected officials and candidates have been invited as well.

     Invite friends and guests to the picnic, as this is a great time to engage those who share our progressive values and ideals to organize around issues and campaigns.  The attached flyer contains additional details.  You may also call 248-656-8891 for further information.
     We look forward to seeing you at the picnic! 
Sigrid Grace,Chair, Rochester Area Democratic Club
