Ankeney Picnic with Speaker Gaye Symington & energy innovator

For years, the Chittenden County Democrats have hosted a fundraiser at the St. George farm of former State Senator Jean Ankeney. This year, we are honored to have the Speaker of the Vermont House of Representatives Gaye Symington of Jericho as our guest of honor. Also attending with be energy innovator Mike Strizki, the engineer and inhabitant of America's first hydrogen-solar powered home.

Speaker Symington has again in 2007 displayed remarkable leadership. The Legislature has worked hard this session to address global issues like climate change, national issues like a resolution calling for the end to the war in Iraq, state issues like Vermonters' access to broadband and cellular service, local issues like South Burlington's revised charter, human rights issues like the anti-discrimination bill (despite the Governor's inexplicable veto last session), and pocketbook issues working towards solutions in our school budget system.

What: the Ankeney Picnic with Speaker Gaye Symington
Saturday, June 16th, 1-4pm
Where: Willow Brook Ln./Ayer Road, St. George, VT (directions below)

We hope you can join us for this great tradition, meet you legislators and community leaders, enjoy the Vermont summer, have a hot dog and listen to the music of Bill Myregaard & the Willoughbys.

This is a fundraiser, so we are asking for $15 per person or $25 for a family - though of course we welcome all comers.
