CC Dems enjoy Jackson Days

On May 7, 2013, in Event, Who We Are, by Christian County Democrats

Jackson Day Booth

Many Christian County Democrats participated in the activities on Friday and Saturday (April 19 & 20). Both evenings our booth was open and selling tickets to a raffle for a $50 gift certificate to Garden Adventures Nursery (proceeds going to Least of These Food Pantry), as well as giving away Democrat keychains. The hospitality rooms were flowing with refreshments for all attending Friday night, and later the silent and live auctions generated quite a buzz of activity.

Saturday morning Attorney General Chris Koster spoke at the breakfast, with Jason Kander speaking after the breakfast.

The Saturday night banquet dinner was very good, and the room was packed. After the Men’s Chorus of the Ozarks sang the national anthem, awards were given out, and remarks made by Mike Sanders, our Missouri Democratic Party Chair and Clint Zweifel, our State Treasurer, Jim Kabell spoke to the crowd. Kabell is a union leader from Springfield, and explained the deception he sees in Jefferson City with so-called “right to work” bills. Many law makers just want to shut labor up. He urged us to write or call our legislators and ask them to vote NO on these proposals. He reminded us of what Martin Luther King Jr and Rosa Parks did to make a difference in racial injustices. They made a difference because they stuck together and worked together for change. He said we too could make a difference! 2014 will be an important year for Democrats to get back the Missouri Senate.Jackson Day Booth

We raised $106 for Least of These through the raffle. The winner was thrilled to have won. And we thank Garden Adventures for donating the gift certificate.  If you missed Jackson Days this year, mark your calendars for next year: April 4 & 5, 2014!
