Dearborn Democrats Family Holiday Party

Join us for our Dearborn Democrats family holiday party, chili cook off, and dessert auction! There will be activities for kids too!

Our chili competition will be hot! If you wish to enter, prepare your chili at home and bring it in a crock pot to keep it warm. Each chili competitor will have a jar next to their chili and party attendees will vote by putting dollar bills into the jar of their favorite chili. You can vote as many times as you want! The voting money will be donated to Dearborn Democrats and there will be a prize for the best chili along with bragging rights! Dearborn Dems will provide all the fixings including adult beverages!

We are also asking for dessert donations that will be auctioned off during the party. Yum!!!

Click here to sign up for the chili competition and/or dessert donations.

Dearborn Democrats has sponsored a family for the Coalition for Children's Christmas Toys! Our family consists of a young single mother of 3 children, a 1 year old girl, 2 year old girl, and a 4 year old boy. The sign up sheet is the wish list provided by the mother. Let's give them the best Christmas morning they've ever had! We will be collecting the toys at our holiday party. If you cannot attend the party, but wish to make a donation, message us and we can make arrangements to get the toys.

COMMUNITY SERVICE UPDATE: MEN'S CLOTHING DRIVE*
I spoke with the Dearborn County Clearinghouse volunteer coordinator and their biggest need right now is men's clothes, shoes, new men's socks, new men's underwear, and toiletries. She says that there are a lot of men coming out of jail with literally nothing. They want to try to get a job and get their lives on track. However, it is difficult to find employment wit...h a criminal record and having no clothes to wear makes it nearly impossible. So, we will be holding a men's clothing drive! Clean out your closets and ask your friends and family to do the same! Bring your donations to the next Dearborn Democrats meeting on 4/27/17 at 6:30 in the Depot Room of the Lawrenceburg Library!

There are also many opportunities to get more involved in the organization. I have volunteer applications. Email me if you are interested and I will send you the application and information. rbarhorstdcdem@gmail.com.
