NEWS from August 2013  (updated: 09.17.2013, 21:34)  Previous month's news

  • Maine Women's Fund

    is hiring for two part-time positions:

    a Communications and Events Coordinator, and a Grants Coordinator.

  • Our 11th Annual John Syrett Lobster Bake

    was held in Owls Head on Saturday, August 17th. We heard from Gubernatorial candidates Steve Woods and Congressman Mike Michaud on a perfect Maine summer day overlooking Muscle Ridge Channel and Penobscot Bay.

    A great meal was served by Mike Mayo's crew and a slew of volunteers.

    Thanks to everyone who contributed in every way.

    Gerald Weinand posted a video of Congressman Michaud's remarks on Saturday, and remarks by Steve Woods at our June meeting.

    Here's the Village Soup article.

    You may still contribute to this event (our major fundraiser) to help elect Democrats in 2014, through our friends at ActBlue

  • Our August meeting was Tuesday, the 13th

    at Stella Maris House in Rockland.

    We elected the following folks to represent us on three Maine Democratic Party committees:

    • Permanent Organization: Amy Fischer
    • Creditials: Mike May.
    • Platform: Hugh Magbie.

    There are still two openings for Plaform Committee. The first meetings will probably be held in November/December. Let an officer know that you like to be considered, or bring it up at a meeting.

    We had a legislators' round-table, moderated by Gerald Weinand. Representatives Elizabeth Dickerson, and Joan Welsh, and Chuck Kruger participated.

    The agenda is here.
  • Lobster Festival Parade

    We were there on Saturday, August 3rd, with Congressman Mike Michaud. Check the pix on our Facebook page and 'Like' us.
  • Our July 4th Food Booth

    was fun despite the heat which kept the crowds at bay and reduced our sales. We'll need to see more success from other fundraising events if we are to meet our budget for the 2014 campaign support activities.
