Burlington Democrats Annual Picnic & Unity Action Day - June 21st

The Burlington Democrats have their Annual Picnic scheduled for Saturday June 21 at the Ethan Allen Homestead in the Burlington Intervale from 12 Noon to 3 PM. The theme of this picnic is Unity Action Day.

Unity Action Day is the first part of an aggressive outreach plan to:
- reach out to supporters of each of the former candidates for President and ask them to join us.
- send postcards to local Democrats to encourage them to get involved in the presidential race and local campaigns
- get ready for the upcoming campaign season by recruiting new volunteers and re-uniting with old friends
- Have lots of FUN!

You don't have to bring anything, but we hope that you'll bring a friend or two.
