Dear Members and Friends:

Changes are coming to our regular monthly meetings! As we have been doing since the start of the pandemic, we will record a zoom meeting in July that will be shown on Village TV every Wednesday in August at 2 p.m.

But the exciting news is that we are planning in person meetings for August and September! For August 17 at 7 p.m. in CH 2 we are planning a Get to Know Each Other Again meeting. We will be welcoming the new members who have joined us in 2020 and 2021 and honoring those of you who have been members for 10 years! There will be time to chat with old friends, to get to know some new people, and to find out about club committees and how you can be part of them! Because of recent upticks in Delta variant cases, we are requesting all participants wear masks and we will arrange seating a bit farther apart than in the past.

For September we are planning a Jolanda-catered box lunch Picnic with our Political Stars for Saturday, September 25. Stay tuned for details for what promises to be an exciting event with our electeds and a silent auction!

We are looking forward to seeing all of you in person soon! Meanwhile stay safe, stay well, stay sane. We are all in this together and we will get through it.

Kind regards,
Sue Dearing
Pres., LWDC

Laguna Woods Democratic Club serves as the meeting and gathering place for registered Democrats and friends of the Democratic Party in the community of Laguna Woods Village, a senior community of 18,000 residents.

We encourage membership and participation from other communities. There are no age or residency requirements to become an LWDC member.

In addition to regular monthly meetings, we host social and charitable activities throughout the year that are open to the public, including the August Pot Luck Picnic and the Annual Luncheon where we hold a silent auction. There are countless volunteer opportunities for voter registration, food drives for our primary service project, South County Outreach charity in Lake Forest, and co-sponsoring events with other clubs in our community.

The purpose of the Club is to stimulate greater interest in government affairs, to further the ideals and principles of the Democratic Party, to increase Democratic Party registration and turnout, and to elect Democratic candidates who will truly support the United States Constitution and work for the highest degree of economic and social justice and welfare for all people.

We educate the community about the role government plays and its effect. We study issues and work to influence public policy through letters, petitions and phone calls to local, state and federal elected officials. We promote Democratic values through our involvement in local communities and through the volunteerism of our members.
