Coffee is Brewing
December being such a busy month, we will not hold a Hanover Democratic Women's coffee, but we look forward to a morning coffee to begin the new year. We'll have more details about that later.
Our November coffee bubbled with spirited conversation on our just-concluded elections and appreciation of our candidates -- especially our own Toni Radler.
Some 25 women attended the gathering at Lakisa Greenhow's home, seasoned participants and others who joined us for the first time after being drawn to action in the elections -- all welcomed in our thriving group of active and inspiring Democratic women who are becoming stronger as we get to know each other.
We will begin our third year in 2014 as a Hanover Democratic Women's group. All Democratic women are invited to join us as we meet each month in the homes of volunteer hostesses in different locations around the county, alternating between morning and evening times. We have no specific agendas, memberships or fees.
