We are all set to celebrate the end of this long Winter and get together as Democrats once again.  Join us at our first dinner since the Election and find out what we’re doing now.  There are some more tough fights coming up soon that we will need your help to win.  Let’s get started right now!

We will be holding our annual Spring Dinner and Silent Auction at Jakum’s Hall which is located at 2601 N. 15th Street in Sheboygan.  The Dinner will be held on Friday, May 15th.  Fellowship “hour” will be held from 5-6:30pm, dinner will be at 6:30pm and our guest speaker will be introduced at 7:30pm.

As our honored guest, Doug LaFollette has happily accepted our invitation to come and address the attendees.

As a professor, State Senator, Sec. of State and Board member for several environmental NGOs he has built a reputation for clear discussion of the problems and the political, technical and social changes we need to make to protect and restore the planet.

LaFollette was born in Des Moines, Iowa. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Marietta College, his Master of Science in chemistry from Stanford University, and his Ph.D. in organic chemistry from Columbia University.
