Calling All Democrats!!

Ward 1 Chair Bernadette Merenda writes:

I come to yo today in need of your help. With the Fourth of July behind us, we are now looking ahead to The Sidewalk Bazaar, Aug.  7, 8,and 9. This is a great opportunity for Gloucester Democrats to engage our community in conversations about democratic values, our great candidates running for office, voter registration, and of course increasing our membership.

We will have a trivia game based on questions from the Naturalization Test as well as political literature. As you know we have many contested races that we can win if we get the word out! Many hands make light work, so please consider joining the cause.

Following is a list of shifts, please sign up for what you can do stating your preference.

7:30 am – 10 a.m. (this includes set up and requires a vehicle.)

10 a.m. - noon

Noon - 2 p.m.
