DFMC September Link-up – Indiana Education in the Balance

We have three candidates running for State Representative in districts that include parts of Monroe County, that are educators, Jim Mann, Jeff Sparks, and Daymon Brodhacker. Come  enjoy meeting them and ask them questions, offer advice, and maybe find out why education policy in Indiana for both K-12 and our Universities going forward is probably the most important issue to be decided by this election. Daymon Brodhacker, unfortunately has a conflict and will be unable to attend, but both Jim Mann and Jeff Sparks will be there.

As usual we will meet at Bobby’s Colorado Steakhouse.  Come at 6:00 PM to order food and talk with your fellow progressives.  The program will start at 6:30 PM.

Fifth Annual Democracy For Monroe County Picnic and Golf Tournament

Get out your frisbees and start practicing for the Fifth Annual Democracy For Monroe County Picnic and Golf Tournament, Sunday September 14, 2pm, at Karst Farm Park Shelter #4. Enjoy good food, good music, and good friends while helping to support Democracy for Monroe County (DFMC) in its mission to recruit, train, and support fiscally responsible and socially progressive candidates at the local and state levels.

The Disk Golf tournament is $10 to enter, and the winner will receive a $100 BloomingBucks certificate, redeemable at many of our fine local establishments!

This year, being the 10th anniversary year of our organization, we are adding a Dean Scream Contest to the fun. Contest entry is $5.

Tickets for the picnic are $10 per person and $20 per family (one or two adults with children 17 and under). Tickets for all parts of this event can be purchased from any DFMC Board member, or through ActBlue at this link, or at the picnic itself.

If you are on Facebook, we also encourage you to RSVP for the picnic there: https://www.facebook.com/events/1448993128686589/
