CCDC Zoom Meeting May 3 (rescheduled)

On May 3rd, from 3 to 5 PM, we held a virtual meeting that centered around the draft Platform.  Ben Grant, Chair of the 2020 Maine Democratic Party Platform committee, assisted us and accepted comments and discussion.

We also held a brief business meeting. One of the necessary actions was to elect at-large members of the CCDC (who can participate and vote in future meetings).

The zoom meeting was streamed live to YouTube and recorded so everyone can see the presentation and discussion.

A recording of the meeting in zoom format is available here:

The Cumberland County Democratic Committee will hold a fund raising bowl a thon May 24th at 7pm at 33 Elmwood in Westbrook.

33 Elmwood is a new bowling alley off of route 302 at Prides Corner. The facility offers ten pin and candle pin bowling as well as a bar and restaurant.

Participants (bowlers) are asked to collect pledges against the number of pins they knock down during one game. For example if one scores a 100 and gets a pledge of ten cents pin, then the person who has pledged will donate $10 to the Cumberland County Democratic Committee.

If you cannot collect pledges you are welcome to bowl and pledge on your score.
