KC Dems Club: Summer Hiatus

Friday, September 1 Update

First, I would like to acknowledge that our ice cream social was a great success. Thanks to the Neils for hosting this event.

Regarding our weekly club meetings, we are working to offer in-person meetings with an option for Zoom participation for those who prefer that option. Therefore, we are seeking a venue that meets these requirements. In addition, we hope to go one step further by having both daytime and evening meetings, perhaps on an alternating basis. This will allow working folks and students to participate in our Dem Club events.

If you have any feedback or input, please email Phil Ward or call 305-297-3361.

Friday, August 25 Update

Well thanks to the remnants of Hurricane Hillary, our skies have cleared. Now that the sun is coming out again, the scene is set for our final summer social at the home of John and Paula Neils. So, grab a camp chair and some sunscreen plus your favorite beverage and join the fun. The event features an Ice Cream Social featuring ice cream, cake, root beer floats, and more. The location is 15788 W Hollister Hills Drive, Hauser ID. See you there.

Friday, August 18 Update

Don’t miss our last summer social gathering! It takes place on August 25th at 15788 W Hollister Hills in Hauser, ID at the home of John and Paula Neils. This summer get together features ice cream, cake, root beer floats, and more. You are welcome to bring a favorite beverage if you like but be sure to bring a lawn chair.

Friday, August 11 Update

Well, the details of our August Social are now in place so I can tell you that the date is Friday, August 25 from 6:00 – 8:00 PM at the home of Paula and John Neils in Hauser. Their house is located at 15788 W Hollister Hills Dr. This late summer gathering will be an ice cream social and all you need to bring is something to sit on. Everything else will be provided. So, plan to attend and enjoy this wow-ser of an event in Hauser.

If you have any feedback or input, please email Phil Ward or call 305-297-3361.

Friday, AUGUST 4 Update

As I mentioned last week, we are planning another in person Summer Social in August. As of now, the details have not been finalized. I will let you know as soon as the date and location are confirmed. Also, remember that after Labor Day we will return to our recurring schedule of in person meetings with food, drink, guest speakers with some Zoom access as well. So, stay tuned.

If you have any feedback or input, please email Phil Ward or call 305-297-3361.

Friday, July 28 Update

If you were unable to attend our second summer social at Ruben and Mary Miranda’s on Friday, July 21, you missed a great gathering. There were people there who’ve been absent for a long time, and it was great catching up with them. This Mexican themed event included refreshing margueritas, delicious Mexican food and tasty desserts. The next summer social takes place in August but we have yet to confirm a meeting place. So, if you would like to host this gathering, please let me know.

On another note, the Club is working to decide the best way to resume our regular meetings. Ideally, we would have options for meeting in-person and over zoom. In addition, we are considering alternating our meeting time to accommodate both midday and evening attendance. The Club will be returning to our regular weekly club meetings after Labor Day.

If you have any thoughts about the Club schedule or our proposed meeting options, please feel free to share them with me. I would appreciate your input. Ideally, by working together, the Club can help to build a coalition capable of restoring civility and cooperation to Kootenai County government. Submit your feedback to Phil Ward or call 305-297-3361.

Friday, June 30 Update

Last Friday we successfully held our first summer in person get together. We had a nice turn out and met people we have not encountered outside of our computer screens in quite a while. This social offered everyone a chance to talk and enjoy some delicious desserts. If you missed this gathering, there will be others, so you need not worry. The next social is on July 21 at the home of Ruben and Mary Miranda. So, be sure to save this date.

Friday, June 23 Update

This Friday June 23rd from 6:00 – 8:00 PM, we are hosting our first summer social. This is not a political event. Therefore, there will be no featured speaker, and no special video presentation. Instead, it will just be us, meeting together in-person to talk and share some food and drink. If you can, let us know you are coming. Either way, no formal RSVP is needed. Simply show up. So, please join us. It has been too long.

Friday, May 19 Post

Ruben Miranda, the Dems Club President, announced that the club is taking a summer hiatus. This pause only applies to our Friday noon meetings. However, we will be scheduling periodic evening get-togethers, to discuss ways to improve the club, as well as to socialize. These summer socials should be fun events and a great way to strengthen the ties between us. Your ideas or suggestions on ways to promote greater outreach and participation would be welcomed.

We will resume our weekly meetings right after Labor Day, hopefully both in person and using zoom. That way we can maximize participation and hopefully develop greater support for the November elections.

Until then, we will continue to send an email each week with updates on activities including the details of our social gatherings. The details for our June social will be coming soon.

If you have questions, concerns, or suggestions please feel free to send them to Rubin or Phil.

Please stay connected.
