Announcing Picnic 2023!

Hello Lompoc Valley Democrats!
Please join us on Sunday, September 3rd for our annual (the day before) Labor Day  Picnic. 
Once again, through the generosity of Art Hibbits, the event will be held at his ranch amidst the remaining walnut trees.
And once again, our very own Richard Moody will be providing that amazing barbecue lunch, with potluck* appetizers**, sides and desserts.
Please see the flyer for alphabet breakdown for dishes.
*The potluck part is appreciated, but not mandatory. And the alphabet breakdown is just a guideline; if you have an amazing dessert you really want to bring and your last name starts with B, don't sweat it...bring that dessert!
 **If you are in the A-F group, please consider arriving by noon so everyone can enjoy your appetizers/nibbles before lunch at 1:00 p.m.
Please RSVP at your earliest convenience

Tickets sold at the event (cash, check, or card), or you can do it online via this ActBlue link.

Our picnic is a really fun annual event, but its main purpose is to raise funds to keep our amazingly-sited office open. Although the office is sometimes idle for large portions of the year, we're heading into a busy election season and having such a prime location is a real asset to our party and candidates.
(Presidential Primary in 211 days, btw) 
Not only am I humbly asking for your attendance and possible monetary donation, but this is also a call for Auction Items for the event. Anything you would be able to part with? Perhaps a donation of wine for the "Wine Cellar"? Do you have an old Auction Item that you'd love to see go to a good cause? Old Gift Certificates you keep meaning to use. Anything that you think someone else would bid on.   For example, I've been growing an avocado tree in a container just for this auction (it was a very good avocado-opening bid: $10).
Please get in touch with any questions or donations.
Hope to see you there,
