“When you do nothing you feel overwhelmed and powerless. But when you get involved you feel the sense of hope and accomplishment that comes from knowing you are working to make things better.” (Maya Angelou)
The snowfall and chilling temperatures did not deter 28 participants from attending the January 2017 meeting at the Dunson Room in Fairview Park City Hall. President Troy Greenfield welcomed City Leader, Danielle Sundberg, who gave updates on 2016 election results, the 16th District geography, and challenges and opportunities for Democrats in the next four years. President Greenfield guided the group through a lively discussion about our post-election views and evolving values as Democrats, the critical role of social media in our culture and communications, and our challenge to build/re-build relationships in our communities as we anticipate 2018 and 2020 elections. The Participants were actively engaged in the discussion and provided great feedback and insight. We look forward to continuing our discussion and developing our action plans for local Democrats.
Next meeting is February 2, 2017 at 7pm in the Dunson Room at Fairview Park City Hall.
Our 2017-2018 Fairview Park Democratic Club Officers were sworn in at the November 3 meeting by Mayor Eileen Patton.

Congratulations to all! Our next meeting is February 2, 7 p.m., in the Dunson Room, lower level of Fairview Park City Hall, 20777 Lorain Road, with parking and entrance in the rear. We will discuss the work ahead and strategize together as we enter a new, challenging political era.

As we engage in the work ahead, let us remember what Hillary Clinton called us to in her Nov. 9 speech:
“Our constitutional democracy demands our participation, not just every four years, but all the time. So let’s do all we can to keep advancing the causes and values we all hold dear. Making our economy work for everyone, not just those at the top, protecting our country and protecting our planet. And breaking down all the barriers that hold any American back from achieving their dreams.”
Our Club President, Bill McGinty, and his wife, Mary, will open their lovely North Valley Drive home for our Annual Club Picnic, June 2, 6:30 p.m. All Club members and friends, along with the Westshore Democratic Leaders and candidates are invited. Please r.s.v.p. to email@example.com and we will send the address. Also, please let us know if you can bring a side dish, dessert, horduerves or beverage. The main dish will be provided.
