On Sunday, December 9th, over a hundred Whatcom Democrats got together at the Elks Lodge for the annual holiday party. It was a relaxed and mellow evening of social camaraderie, complemented by the musical stylings of the Prawns Jazz Trio. Attendees enjoyed appetizers, ham and turkey with many wonderful side dishes, and the competitive spirit and delicious finale of the dessert dash. Many thanks to all those who contributed to the feast and helped with set-up and clean-up.

This year has flown past and it's time to gather together to enjoy each other and discuss the future. Our December 8th meeting will be our annual Holiday Brunch. We would like everyone to bring something to share. The brunch will be at the Machinists Hall in Ferndale, 10 AM. This is a great time to talk to potential people about running for positions within the party, as our re-organization meeting will take place in January. We are always looking out for more folks to step up and join the 42nd LD Democratic Committee. A special invite to all the PCO's.

The Whatcom Democrats is an organization run by volunteers, who work very hard and spend many hours to bring progressive Democratic candidates and values to our county, state and country. I am humbled by the dedication of our board members, our candidates, our phone bankers, canvassers, and our members.
by Daydre Phillips, Outreach Committee Chair
I would like to thank all of the volunteers and candidates who participated in the Outreach Committee’s activities during the last few months of the election. It took every single person working together to make this election the success that it was. If I have forgotten anyone, I do apologize, and want everyone who participated to know how much your efforts are appreciated.
