Group Fundraiser and 2nd District Gathering in Washington, Iowa

October 2, 2011

The Washington County Democrats, decided to combine their annual fundraising luncheon with the subsequent meeting of the 2nd District Democrats at the 4-H Building at the Washington County fairgrounds on Sunday, October 2, 2011.

The event was a win/win situation for the 2nd District Democrats and the county group. The Washington County Democrats enjoyed greater participation and the benefit of the shared facility, while the 2nd District group had the nicer facility as well as the benefit of gathering for lunch without the normal hassle of the potluck.

It was the first gathering of the new members of the new 2nd Congressional District, and the members of the former group. It also constituted the first reorganizational event in preparation of the future district reorganization.

Washington is located near the center of the new 2nd Congressional District, and that means we will probably be meeting in Washington often according to a 2nd District representative.
