  Dear Fellow Democrats and Lakeland Democratic Club Member:  

   Have you ever asked yourself or given much thought to this:  why did I (or should I) join the Lakeland Democratic Club?

   Doing something that could benefit others had to be near the top of the list for you.  That's who we Democrats are.  And, there is an immediate way in which you can do this, and helping others enjoy their lives more is fulfilling for your and me, too.  And in the process we help save our democracy.

   So, here's how we do it:  introduce all the Democrats on your street or block to all the other Democrats in the area where you live,  When you do this, you will have immediately improved the lives of those folks.  I know from experience. We did this at Lake Ashton and the size of our club exploded and the feedback was gratifying to the heart.  On many occasions I was told that doing that improved the lives of Democrats at Lake Ashton, and it did.  Couples who had known each other for more than ten years didn't know that the others were Democrats.  That's probably (definitely) true for you, too.  Can you name all the Democrats on the street where you live?  You are going to be surprised.

   What's the plan?  We form into small groups of two, three, four or five people each.  We then identify all of the Democrats on your street.  We then hold an informal Sip-and-snack get-together.  We exchange contact information and then begin enjoying life more while participating more in Democratic club activities.  I will always be there with you to help.  We are already doing this now, with one already done and two more in the next ten days.

   It's simple and it works.  So, get prepared to have some fun.  Contact me to let me know that you are ready to start before I reach out to you.

"The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman." - Thomas Paine

Thank you for doing this.  Our country needs us now as much as ever.
