Every month the Democrat Club collects money for designated local charities. In 2018 we chose two charities: Freedom’s Rest (Christian County’s only domestic abuse shelter) and St Joseph’s Food Pantry (located in Billings), with the monies being split 60/40 between the two, respectively.

So in January of 2019 Democrat Club member Marge Bramer gave Freedom’s Rest a check for $445, and our new Democrat Club President, Bob Rubino, presented St Joseph’s Food Pantry a check for $296. Bob also gave the Food Pantry the 448 “Best Choice” labels we had collected. These help them defray the cost of food purchases for the pantry. (Unfortunately, their monetary donations have been down almost 25% while the number of people needing assistance has increased!)

Our new Chair of the Christian County Democratic Central Committee, Diane Stalder, lead a spirited evening of conversation and camaraderie! Friends gathered to share stories of last year’s events, both the good and the bad. Joe Pitts, former Executive Director of the James River Basin Partnership, spoke on national and local environmental issues, calling on us to act now! Bob Rubino reported on the Missouri Democratic Party meeting and election. Zoe Billedo inspired us with reflections on looming environmental challenges. And The Cattywampus Band, always a pleasure, lifted our spirits and provided the background for conversations among fellow Southwest Missouri Democrats, giving us renewed energy for the future. The auction (performed by Matt Patterson) of food baskets and other special items was a great fundraiser for Christian County Democrats. Thank you all for participating and making it a successful evening!

 

 

 

On December 10, 2018, Christian County Democratic Central Committee met for a Special Meeting to recommend someone for the Eastern District Commissioner. After a discussion of possible candidates to send to the Governor, Sue Ann Childers was unanimously chosen. A letter has been sent to Governor Parsons siting Childers experience as a past Commissioner, her educational qualifications, and her many years as a teacher in Ozark. The Governor will appoint a replacement For Ralph Phillips early next year. Phillips won the race for Presiding Commissioner, therefore leaving an opening in the Eastern District.

We will be meeting next Tuesday, November 20th at Piccolo Restaurant, 107 W Aldersgate Drive, Nixa, Missouri, at 6:00 pm. The meeting will begin at 7:00 pm. This will be our last meeting this year, so please remember to bring donations for our charities. We will also be electing officers for 2019!
