Save the Date: August 22nd, 5 PM

2020 has been a trying time for all of us. As we approach the general election, we are all interested and concerned with the outcomes in November.

This year we have not been able to conduct any of our annual fundraisers! We have not had Springfest and of course, there will be no Summer Picnic. Instead, we would like to invite you to join us for our online event: Clear Blue Vision.  The Washington County Democrats have had to work swiftly this year to pivot to the new needs of the party. Campaigning is still critical and our committees are working hard to make sure that all down-ballot elections are successful for our Democrat and endorsed local candidates.

We will have an exciting guest speaker (to be announced this week), and an online raffle auction that you can participate in leading up to the event!

You will even still get a chance to bid on an awesome “WCD Summer Picnic” Pie!WashCoDems 2018 summer picnic pie
