Our Christmas Party Remembered

On December 16, 2015, in Candidates, Democratic Party, Election, Event, Uncategorized, by Christian County Democrats

December 5th at the Fremont Hills Country Club, the Christian County Democratic Central Committee had a very successful fundraiser/party. We had two Missouri Democratic candidates and our Democratic County Commissioner speaking, a popular local singer and storyteller entertaining, and the Cattywampus Band enlivening it all.  And we all agreed that the dinner provided by Fremont Hills was excellent.

Sue Ann Childers (Christian County Commissioner) began the talks and said she was open to listening to our concerns. Dr. Brad Bradshaw (running for Missouri Lt. Governor) received applause for his stance on Medicaid expansion and he told us of his plans for making Missouri #1 in medical research. Teresa Hensley (running for Missouri Attorney General) spoke to us about her experience as a prosecutor in Cass County and her dedication to seeking justice for all. Marideth Sisco (Ozark storyteller and singer) criticized the hostile environment of political discourse today and challenged us to question those telling untruths. She also sang a couple of her favorite songs. The Cattywampus Band played during dinner and after speeches.

Baskets and pies (prepared by our hardworking members) were auctioned off by Matt Patterson, and silent auction items were awarded to the highest bidder. The Jerry Litton Award was presented to Diane and Kent Stalder by David Lee who spoke of their dedication to Christian County Democrats.

Thanks to everyone who participated and everyone who helped make this lovely party a success (especially the Billedo family)!

Neither snow nor cold stopped the Christmas Festivities

On December 23, 2013, in Event, Thoughts, by Christian County Democrats

Many Christian County Democrats travelled the snow-covered roads to enjoy our 22nd annual Christmas Party at Island Green Golf Club. After a fine meal, Jay Swearingen, state legislator from Kansas City, spoke to us about his plans to run for State Auditor in 2014. We also enjoyed our favorite band, The Cattywampus Band, who played for most of the evening. Our auctioneer this year was Matt Patterson, assisted by Zoe Billedo; top dollars were paid for the donated items: 10 gift baskets, 6 homemade pies, and 3 gift certificates. A $100 fishing cooler with assorted fishing gear was raffled off, as well as a 50/50 pot. AND besides some beautiful poinsettias being given away, we had a door prize! Few folks walked away empty-handed, and the Central Committee raised funds for the 2014 election year.

The Litton Award, given each year to a deserving member of our Christian County Democratic community, was presented to Anita Jones for her dedication to our cause. (Unfortunately Anita was down in Florida, basking in the sun!)

Thank you to all those who donated their time and/or items for the auction. And a large thanks to our sponsors!

Violet and Wesley Roller, winners of 2011 Litton Award

Each year the Christian County Democrats choose an outstanding person or couple to receive the Jerry Litton Award. Jerry Litton was a Missouri Democratic Congressman with a reputation for being honest, steadfast, loyal, and kind to his fellowman. He was considered a rising star in the Democratic Party with Jimmy Carter saying he thought Litton would be President one day. It was a blow to us all when he and his family were killed in a plane crash in 1976. Jim Kreider, one of our fellow Christian County Democrats, worked on Jerry Litton’s campaign and recommended we name an award in his honor. This award is given to a person or persons who exhibit the dedication and kindness of Jerry Litton.

This year the 2010 recipients of the Litton Award, the Steinbaughs, presented the award to Wesley and Violet Roller. We feel the Rollers exhibit many of those same Litton qualities of honesty, steadfastness, loyalty, and kindness to their fellow man. They are quiet and unassuming and their family values are reflected in their lives every day.

Congratulations to Wes and Vi for being honored by their fellow democrats!
