On Martin Luther King Jr. Service Day
GDCC helps feed the hungry
Cold weather didn’t prevent our GDCC volunteers from helping out our neighbors on Saturday, Jan. 14,
In six hours, GDCC volunteers collected 1,959 pounds of tuna and other forms of protein for The Open Door food pantry. Public Service Director Bernadette Merenda thanked all of those who participated. Besides Merenda, volunteers included Mary Kingsley, Liz Murray, Susan Only, John Recroft, Ralph Waddey, Michael Wheeler, Candace Wheeler, Monica Nardone, Karen Bell, David Rhinelander, Helen Wiseman, Margaret Spencer, Liane Giunta, Deanna Fay, Steve Anaya, Tom Denman, Matthew Murray, Wayne Berger,and Deb Berger.
Another day of service was held on Feb. 5 at which GDCC volunteers helped staff the Grace Center, which provides services to Gloucester’s homeless population. .
Caucuses set for March 9
Our caucuses to select delegates and alternates for the party’s June 3 platform convention in Lowell will be held on March 9 and be held in conjunction with our monthly meeting at the Gloucester House. The caucuses will be held at 6 p.m., prior to the commencement of our regular meeting at 7.
In a platform committee year, the caucus is usually fairly quick. You must be registered as a Democrat prior to the caucus in order to participate.
The Gloucester Democratic City Committee’s public access television show, Democratic Dialogue, will air on Cape Ann TV, Channel 12, throughout the month of February. Host David Rhinelander will speak with Matt Murray, Democratic State Committee member and Chair of Young Democrats of Massachusetts, and Tristan Whitehouse, Chair of the Cape Ann Young Democrats, about outreach to young voters.
