Fall is here! Leaf Peepers will be Peeping! We all know that peeping is something related to the eyes. But it’s also something that has to do with the ears!
I remember my first grade teacher telling us: “I don’t want to hear one peep from this classroom!” As for the Carroll County DEMs during this hunk of time — let’s do more than peep about justice and fairness and truth. Let us reach out and invite our friends, family, and neighbors to join the chorus of resisters, of truth tellers, of activists — all for the common good!
Here are “10 Things To Know … OCT 1” —
1. The Cleveland Dinner is November 7. It’s the annual gathering of Carroll County DEMs. I hope that you will purchase a ticket and meet the 3 gentlemen seeking the DEM nomination for Governor. Learn more about this year’s Cleveland Dinner by visiting: Cleveland Dinner …
2. Scholarships: Another thing about the Cleveland Dinner … we are making room for high school students and making room for county friends for whom the $75 ticket price might be a bit too steep. If you are someone who might be willing to participate in helping to provide some financial support for these two groups need some assistance, contact email@example.com. If you or someone you know needs a little help with the cost of a ticket, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Kudos to the Tri Town DEMs (Moultonborough, Sandwich, and Tuftonboro) for their awesome event this past Sunday — the Garden Party. The leaders in these three towns work so well together! If you are from one of those three towns, reach out and learn how to be involved! Moultonborough Democrats
4. County Leader to Know: Erik Corbett!
Many thanks to Erik for his great work that he’s been doing in Carroll County throughout the years. He has been a faithful resource to leaders throughout the districts of Carroll County. He knows how things have worked, but he’s not at all stuck in how things have to be. Erik is eager to help the Carroll County DEMs move forward while, at the very same time, helping us remember how things have been. Erik’s been in healing mode in this last hunk of time and still is staying tuned in to communicating and sharing news. We’ll be cheering him on in the months to come as he and some others fine-tune how the county communicates what is going on. If you are someone who might want to participate in getting our communication ducks in a row, give a yell to knute and I’ll connect you.
5. Big shout out to people throughout the county who are writing letters to the newspapers to speak out and speak up. Today, we can celebrate Peg Merritt of Sandwich. Great letter in the Sun today, Peg! Whenever we write letters, I encourage you to be hopeful, check your facts, and do your best to come across as reasoned and clear — just like Peg Merritt!
