Hello Logan County Democrats!
We held our re-organizational meeting on June 2, 2022, and everything went very well. All of our newly elected Central Committee members were in attendance except one, so it was a good turnout. I am excited to announce our newly elected Officers.
County Chair: Joe Reed
1st Vice Chair: Barbra Gant
2nd Vice Chair: Adam Brannon
Secretary: Mandie Rudolph
Treasurer: Sue Neer
The new Committee has decided the last Wednesday of the month at 7pm is the best time for our monthly meetings. Please make note of the day change for the meetings. We will also be holding them in person at the Logan County Solid Waste Building on South Detroit St. We will also continue with Facebook live and Zoom for those unable to attend in person. Please be patient with us until we get things running smoothly, as this will be a bit different for us. Our next meeting is June 29 at 7pm.
Adam has been doing some number crunching for us and in 2016 there were 9 hundred and some, registered Democrats in Logan County and for this last primary election there are now over 1800. Our presence in Logan County is definitely growing, which means our hard work is paying off, but we certainly cannot stop or even let up as we know what is happening around us. The January 6 Committee hearings started June 9. Please watch if you can.
First Fridays Event in downtown Bellefontaine are ongoing every month. Voter Registration table is set up from 5-8pm at the Main Street Marketplace entrance. If you can help out, please call or text Carol Adkins, 937.441.3839.
Our “Post Pandemic Poultry Picnic” was a hit. It rained the whole time we were there, but it was still a good turnout. We made over $1497 and sold 50 meals. This is for our fall HQ, so if you didn’t get a chance to participate, we will always take donations. Thank you to all who participated or helped out in any way!
Logan County Fair is July 10 -16 this year. I have started filling out the schedule. We can still use volunteers to staff the booth. We have it open from noon till 8pm every day, and you will get a free daily pass for helping out. You can work 2 hours or all day. Please let me know if you can help out. Call Sue 937.935.3492 or text. We can also use some candy donations, and we will have popcorn again.
The Wreaths Across America project was discussed at our May meeting, and the Committee approved a $200 donation to go towards the purchase of Wreaths for the Bellefontaine Cemetery Veterans. I also challenged Adam to get the same from the LC Republicans.
Logan County Pride held an event June 4 at The Olive Tree and Indian Lake. Barb Gant had a voter registration table set up and there will be a parade in West Liberty June 18 at 12pm with a small celebration at the Lion’s Park afterward. We plan to be in the parade and have a voter registration booth at the park. If interested in attending or helping out, please contact Barb at 937.303.2221.
The next Logan County Grassroots Democrats meeting is June 30 at 7:30pm. This will be at LC Solid Waste. Contact Barb Gant if you have any questions. 937.303.2221.
