Join us at our annual summer picnic, where we will all come together following the August 2 primary races. We will be honoring retiring Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence to thank her for her 30 years of public service, including as Southfield school board member, councilwoman and mayor, as well as her four terms in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Sunday, August 14th (2pm)
We are gathering for another Summer Unity/ Fundraiser Picnic in the backyard of the home of Steven and Michele Artt. The primary election is decided, and our summer fundraiser will help us get the word out for our November election! Instead of our traditional potluck approach, this year the club will provide all the food and drink (you may bring your own beverage.) Let’s say hello in real life for a change, strengthening the club in the process. We’ll be outside, with plenty of space to spread out, and masks are recommended. You can even bring folding chairs to sit apart if you wish. The donations are $20 for adults / $10 for minors. We hope you will join us.
Friday, September 2nd – Monday, September 5th (multiple times)
