SOCIAL SATURDAY: Art as Activism FUNdraiser Meet n' Greet
SATURDAY, October 6
4 pm - 7 pm
421 Arrowhead Pass, Wimberley
The next Social Saturday will include LIVE music, custom t-shirt printing, silent auction, horseshoe contest, candidates, and more! We've teamed with local artist Jennifer Ober to combine her FUNdraiser and our Social Saturday Meet n Greet into one location.
The proceeds will be divided evenly among attending candidates. Vittles is contributing a portion of each sale. Don't forget your checkbook, camp chairs, or lawn blanket!
Original screen printed art done on site with Jennifer Ober!
(Jennifer and local teens will be working hard to make some cool portraits of candidates running at the federal, state and local levels. I'll post pics of the art and details about the event as they are finalized.) Check out pics of prints on Jen's facebook event -- https://www.facebook.com/events/277263826208963/

|Steering Committee Openings
As we go into this very important election season, here are a number of ways to help the Democratic cause in Wimberley:
Block Walk Coordinator
The Block Walk Coordinator manages door-to-door canvassing in the Wimberley area. This includes training block walk volunteers; registering new voters during block walks; and working with our database person to get the target lists and provide feedback after the walks. Block walking is more frequent during election campaigns, but there are also off-cycle walks to identify potential supporters. The Block Walk Coordinator participates in the monthly WimDems Steering Committee meetings.
We depend on our pool of volunteers for a variety of jobs. Most of which can be found listed on our volunteer form at http://www.wimdems.org/volunteer.html. It is the job of the Volunteer Coordinator to orient new volunteers and match up their interests and special skills with GOTV and club efforts. Most of the Coordinator's work will be done by telephone, notifying volunteers of scheduled events that match their express interests. The Volunteer Coordinator is a voting officer on the WimDems Steering Committee.
Please give serious consideration to these positions (and to volunteering for the Democratic candidate of your choice). On the morning of November 7th, you will want to know that you did your best to make a difference.
If you are interested in either position, please contact us at email@example.com

|CONGRATULATIONS Delaney Kearns!! Our 2018 Jim Wright Democratic Educational Scholarship awardee!!
We are an organization of dedicated Democrats. We have no membership dues, but gladly accept contributions. We are governed by a Steering Committee. Member meetings and socials are open to the public. Admittance is free.
Our organization's events are a way to stay informed about state, county and local politics. We also get together sometimes just for fun.
The Wimberley Democrats club was started in January 2001 by Betty Lee Wright. In March 2016 Wimberley Democrats began filing financial reports with the Texas Ethics Commission in order to raise money and do more for our members and our community. We encourage our 600+ members to contribute and volunteer for Democratic candidates.
