There will be a brat fry to benefit the Democratic Parties of Winnebago, Outagamie and Brown at The Midnight Club, Bay Street, Oshkosh (just two blocks north of the Oshkosh Convention Center) on Saturday, June 2 from noon until 4:00 PM. Sponsored and hosted by all our friends in Labor.
On July 1 it is Postal Worker Appreciation Day. These hard working union members are a large part of our community. Their job is incredibly important, and we should take a moment to recognize all their efforts. One idea is to leave a gift card in your mailbox for them. How amazing would it be if this happens all over the county! To make a gift card holder, use your 8.5×11 Democrat Blue paper, copy the clip art from above, print a thank-you, or a welcome to our next general membership meeting or other message on your paper. Or print out and fold up this newsletter so they are kept up to date on all the good things happening. You can make up a nice origami card holder at this youtube address. Click.
