Fall is the season for social events and the Kootenai Democrats are a very social bunch. So, get out and get together.

KC DEMS Come Through for Schools

Today, October 4th, the Kootenai Democrats will drop off the load of school supplies donated by Democrats during our School Supply Drive. Our collection, which occurred last weekend, was a resounding success. We will post photos shortly on our social media. Thank you to Laurie and Cathy Kraus for organizing this fantastic event.

Meet and Greet with Kaylee for Congress

Thursday, October 5th at 5pm, US Congressional candidate Kaylee Peterson will hold an in-person meet at Paddy’s Sports Bar in Coeur d’Alene. Kaylee is a remarkably strong candidate who deserves our support. I hope to see you there.

Meet the Candidates

Plan now to meet the candidates at the Art Spirit Gallery in Coeur d’Alene on October 21st at 6:30pm. This gathering will feature 10 candidates running for local office. This is your chance to speak with them and hear what they have to say about their run for office. This is a potluck mixer, so you can bring a dish if you feel inclined. However, it is not a prerequisite to attend.

KCTFHR Annual Banquet Tickets

We have two tickets available for seats at our Golden Benefactor Table at this week’s Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations Annual Banquet. The cost is $100. You can contact our office if interested.
