Monday Morning News -- February 5, 2020 - Upcoming Events

REMINDER!!

Breakfast this Friday! 7:30 am, Village Deli, bring a pen! Bring some tampons!

We're lucky to have good friends who are very knowledgeable on what the Indiana Legislature is doing on Education related bills. Jenny Robinson and Debbie Fish from the Indiana Coalition for Public Education will update us on education related bills and their status. They'll also help us focus on an action of writing postcards to legislators (and the Governor), thus the need for a pen. The DWC will provide postage unless you have a few postcard stamps that need to be used up! Please join us!!

Also, When you shop this week at CVS, Kroger, or wherever, please pick up a package of feminine hygiene products. Our state legislature refuses to pass a bill that would remove sales tax from these items, even though they still allow your private plane purchase, or gold bullion purchase to be listed as a tax-free item. There's a certain unfairness in taxing essential hygiene items and not taxing non-essentials. Your donations will be taken to organizations that service women in need.
**If anyone wants to volunteer to take these items after breakfast, please let us know by emailing Chair Carolyn VandeWiele at cvpetdoc@comcast.net

 

NOON DEADLINE to file for office and for State Convention Delegate. See notes below on filing for details. It's easy, it's fun, it's a chance to nominate a candidate at the convention!

 

Then Join your friends at the Roaring Into the 20s: A Democratic Women's Caucus Murder Mystery Fundraiser at The Fields Clubhouse, 1333 S. Fenbrook Ln. It'll be FUN way to support women in their run for office, support training, and helping women with their campaign expenses. It starts at 6:30, we'll have heavy appetizers, surprises, a silent auction of really cool items. More info below. If you might be able to take advantage of a last minute cancellation, please contact Regina Moore at regina.moore@gmail.com, or Olivia Reed at oliviajreed@gmail.com

 

Finally, if you like pie, and you like Penny (Githens) don't miss the redux of Pies for Penny on Sunday, Feb 9th from 2-4 pm at HQ (116 S. Madison). Pies, great Sober Joe Coffee, great people.
