A Life of Volunteering
This Friday, the Democratic Club will feature guest speaker Mary Riffe. Mary will speak on the topic of Volunteerism. Mary’s earliest memory of volunteering stems from her father Ed’s annual participation in Wenatchee’s Apple Blossom parade. Ed was a police officer for the Wenatchee police department. For 30 years, he led the Apple Blossom parade on his Harley motorcycle. Years later, she came to realize that her father’s commitment to the parade and the joy he derived was drawn from his sense of duty to the community he served. This memory served as a catalyst for Mary’s own commitment to volunteer service. Over the years, she has served with VFW, Jaycees and Elder Help. She will share her story at the Iron Horse Bar and Grill. We hope you can join us.
Scratch That Volunteer Itch
The Kootenai Democrats are a volunteer political organization. We depend on members of our local community to staff and organize our annual events. More importantly, we depend on committed Democrats to support our efforts to elect Democrats to all levels of federal, state, and local government. Therefore, we encourage anyone who aligns with our politics to Take Action. If you would like to work with us, there are numerous ways you can serve our organization. If you need more encouragement, please plan to attend our volunteer fair on Monday, December 11 from 4-6 pm. The fair will precede our annual Holiday Open House. Attending the fair and open house are a wonderful way to get an overview of the volunteer opportunities available and meet fellow Democrats. These concurrent events take place at the Kootenai Democrat’s office at 206 E Indiana, Ste 112D, Coeur d’Alene ID. See you there.
